After Edgar Wright left Marvel's 'Ant-Man,' the studio quickly made an offer to Adam McKay ('Anchorman'), hoping the director could help save the project. The two sides entered "advanced negotiations" but shortly thereafter, McKay decided to pass on the film. Marvel was really in a bind at this point, so they reached out to the #2 option on their shortlist, 'We're the Millers' director Rawson Thurber, with an offer.

Stan Lee walks out from behind a curtain and emerges into Tony Stark's laboratory, now set up to accommodate cameras and press. Iron Man's suit is encased in the background, the floor is lit up as an enlarged replica of his electromagnetic chest implant, and his inventions, like J.A.R.V.I.S. and his particle accelerator, adorn the far wall. "I don't know how they did it," remarked the famed Marvel creator. "I can't wait to see the rest."

Stan "The Man" was in New York City to promote the latest brain child of Marvel Studios -- the Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N., an interactive exhibit for Marvelites at Discovery Time Square that allows fans to immerse themselves in the world of 'The Avengers' films and S.H.I.E.L.D. Filled with movie props and costumes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- including the Chitauri chariot and weapons from 'The Avengers,' Loki's scepter and vintage Captain America memorabilia -- this S.T.A.T.I.O.N. transforms attendants into S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and dives into the science behind the famed superheroes and their abilities.

After checking out this exhibit for ourselves -- but not before Stan, of course -- we sat down with the true believer to chat about this one-of-a-kind experience and what's coming up next in the Marvel movie canon.
