Avi Arad: From ‘Blade’ To ‘Morbius,’ Three Decades Of Mining Marvel
In Hollywood circles, Avi Arad was Marvel when Marvel wasn’t cool. Today, Marvel represents Hollywood’s gold standard for source material but that was hardly the case back in 1992 when Arad’s long odyssey with the brand got underway with Saturday morning cartoons like X-Men and Iron Man, the latter starring Robert Hays (aka Ted Striker of Airplane! fame) as the voice of Tony Stark.

‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’s Shia LaBeouf, Zack Gottsagen And Filmmakers Talk Non-Cutesy Authenticity Of SXSW Film
The easy explanation of Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz’s The Peanut Butter Falcon would be that it is a Mark Twain-esque adventure of a grimy small-time criminal and a man with Down syndrome who has run away from home with dreams of becoming a professional wrestler.

Lance Bass lived through this era as a member of *Nsync, one of the hugest boy bands in the history of pop culture.
