Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock has been on a tear as of late, researching the location of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden, exploring the omnipotence of product placement in pop culture, and embracing the geek community that convenes on San Diego for Comic-Con each year. But his latest film asks one of the most difficult questions our society has yet to answer: What makes a man?
A few weeks ago we spoke to Morgan Spurlock for his latest documentary, 'Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope', a film that captures the heart of Comic-Con culture and its diehard attendees. To get this film made, Spurlock was backed by four of today's biggest pop culture geeks: Stan Lee, Joss Whedon ('The Avengers'), Harry Knowles (of Ain't It Cool News), and Thomas Tull (executive producer of 'The Dark Knight Rises').
This really proved that Spurlock's not just a filmmaker, but also a fan determined to make an intriguing film for the people who love and understand geek-culture. You don't need to know a thing about Comic-Con to be captivated by this new documentary.
