“In a world filled with hundreds of prequels and sequels, it’s very refreshing to see a new original Stan Lee creation that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s been a dream come true working with Stan Lee and Michael Benaroya. Stan is the greatest story teller of all time and the billions of dollars his stories have generated at the box office is a testament to his genius. These days the big studios only care about already established film brands, while people like Michael care about art and entertainment, both new and old. I’ve spent years trying to secure financing for this project, and I’m very grateful to Michael Benaroya who is a true champion for writers, filmmakers and artists. NITRON is fascinating beyond anyone’s wildest imagination.” ~Keya Morgan
“Without giving too much away, I can say that Stan has created an intricate story and mythology with characters that are unconventional yet relatable. Overall, I think Stan’s NITRON concept is fun and is new and this makes it a very exciting venture for Benaroya Pictures. Beyond entertaining lots of comic fans, we see value in comics as a great way to ignite fan enthusiasm and engagement for broader content plays. We are very pleased to not only have the opportunity now to collaborate on extraordinary content, but to do it with a truly iconic legend in Stan Lee. We look forward to going to work with Stan and Keya Morgan on this and making something discernibly unique.” ~ Michael Benaroya
