Take a look at the life and career of, arguably, the most influential comic book writer in history, Stan Lee. The Incredible Hulk’s lone solo film makes its way to the service. And the Villains of Valley View are back. Let’s take a look at what to watch this weekend on Disney+.
Tracing his life from his upbringing in New York as Stanley Lieber to the rise of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee tells the story of Stan Lee’s life, career, and legacy using his own words and personal archival material.
THE INCREDIBLE HULK
Academy Award nominee Edward Norton stars as scientist Bruce Banner, a man who has been living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote to the unbridled force of rage within him: The Hulk. But when the military masterminds who dream of exploiting his powers force him back to civilization, he finds himself coming face to face with his most formidable foe: the Abomination – a nightmarish beast of pure aggression whose powers match the Hulk’s own! The film also stars Liv Tyler, Oscar nominee Tim Roth, and Oscar winner William Hurt.

PRETTY FREEKIN SCARY
Fourteen-year-old Frankie Ripp had the perfect life – a great family, annoying little brother, a popular boyfriend and a BFF she could always count on. However, her life took a surprising turn after an unfortunate incident. After some heated debate in the Underworld with the Grim Reaper herself, Frankie is forced to navigate life with her new Underworld guardians, Pretty and Scary…in the most challenging setting of all…Middle School. Pretty freekin scary, huh?
And if you are looking for some legacy content, check out the 1977 Walt Disney Animation Studios film, “The Rescuers.” The film follows two mice as they work to find a little girl who has been taken from an orphanage in New York down to Louisiana. It was the first Disney animated film to be granted a sequel.
Those are my picks. What are you watching this weekend?
