Stan Lee Wanted To Create T.V. Show With An Indigenous Superhero

Published

The death of Stan Lee sent shockwaves throughout the world. Fans and colleagues have been sharing their memories of the iconic comic book writer. However, few know that before his death, Lee was slated to bring another project to life.

I Choose You

Several years ago, Lee ran into animator Kevin Gillis, who is best known for creating The Raccoons. Following several meetings, Lee introduced a brand new idea to Gillis. He wanted to do a TV show based around an Indigenous man gaining superpowers. “Stan was very clear, he didn’t want him to fly, he wanted him to have vulnerabilities… the one gift that he (had) was he could see things a few seconds before they happened,” Gillis said.

The show was slated to be called Stan Lee’s The Chosen. 

Life’s A Beach

Gillis was instantly enamored with the show’s concept. Before pitching it to networks, Lee already had an idea for would play the lead. His number one pick was Adam Beach, who gained a Golden Globe nomination for Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.

Beach stepped into the comic book universe portraying Slipknot in the 2016 film Suicide Squad.

Until Next Time?

Unfortunately, getting this off the ground was like pulling teeth. Canadian and European broadcasters were 100% on board with this series. When it came to U.S. broadcasters, they heard nothing but silence. Without any interest in the U.S., Global TV couldn’t fund the series.

It was around this time that Stan Lee had several projects confirmed. Stan Lee‘s Lucky Man was set for Sky One, and anime series The Reflection saw a release on Crunchyroll. Lee decided to simply put the series on the shelf. While he is no longer with us, Gillis is still hoping to get the series made in the comic book icon’s honor.
