Geek Week: Stan Lee’s YouTube Channel to Premiere Three New Videos
As part of YouTube’s Geek Week lineup, Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube channel will release “Star Wars Speed Dating,” the final installment of the Speed Dating Trilogy, and two new shows: “8-Bit Stan Cameos” and “Marvelous Movie Shawarma.” The channel, which offers an array of comic-book and superhero-themed content, is serving as the host of Super Wednesday.
It’s common knowledge that Lee’s had a cameo in nearly every Marvel film. With new “8-Bit Stan Cameos,” the channel extends that running gimmick to video games by placing the comic legend in — as you can see in the preview below — in classic games like “Mega Man” (where Stan appears as the villain “Comicman”), “Duck Hunt,” “The Legend of Zelda” (where he hands out Avengers equipment), and more.
The other new series, “Marvelous Movie Shawarma,” promises to reveal satirical sneak peeks of upcoming Marvel movies “The Avengers 2,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Geek Week is a week-long themed programming stunt co-produced by YouTube and The Nerdist.
