The Graduate followed in 1967, and Nichols continued to direct many acclaimed film and theater productions, the last being Charlie Wilson’s War in 2007.

75 Years of Marvel

75 Years of Marvel

Marvel Comics was originally founded as Timely Comics in 1939. It was renamed Atlas Comics before finally settling on the name Marvel. Illustrator Stan Lee and his collaborators created many of the comic books and characters audiences know today. Lee's work is showcased in the documentary Stan Lee's Mutants, Monsters, and Marvels. Since the 1960s, it seems as if every generation has its own version of the Marvel superheroes on both the big and small screens. The newest Marvel adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy, will be available on DVD and Blu-ray in December. In the meantime, check out these other Marvel characters on film.
