So I came up with this guy aliens -- -- now we've loved by the public dole met Martin -- Weber -- here and how would you say mainly because of Robert Downey junior it.
And that's another thing to end and not to get too much into your financial business.
But I would imagine you get on some of the success of these movies -- Spider-Man wasn't just one film it's it's always a lot out there having -- -- franchise yeah.
-- -- Now I have to tell you something very seriously though and I hate fingers they love getting credit for things.
I have very little to do with the movies.
They make them.
If I'm lucky I get a little cameo in them that they ask you about I -- new home if it I very often we'll talk to the director who's gonna -- -- a new character before he starts and hey what do you think of them stand.
And that's the end of that then they go -- and they do their thing.
The beauty of it is.
If the show -- -- it I still get a lot of credit I can -- busy -- -- hey I did nothing to do with it made her way back -- win anyway after that wow that's that -- that you look at that when we look at him.
Now are you are you an artist by trade -- -- somebody did that about me and I loved it because it has a lot of pool of that's how I'm feeling you heard it yet but we actually need to.
All right -- -- I really wanted to be that girl and I about the company's anchor and in many ways it's the same girl.
I can't really -- this kidding.
But no I think you're wasted on the talk -- what we we've got to get what you wind costume.
Oh look form fitting one -- to get you out there.
Well the bad guys.
-- it make it -- All right guys you heard it right here on the program so now the only foundation.
And has gotten I want you already know that that -- is the chairman of the same sound vaguely attitude -- before you tell me what it is what's it like working with this guy.
It's an education every day -- -- -- and that this yesterday were walking in the the New York Stock Exchange and he was.
You can -- quotes and I was running them down and it's life lessons -- -- becoming incredibly quotable -- What are the -- -- set the foundation is basically building that building on stands legacy.
And the legacy of that you mentioned you know about them for moving that that -- from DC comics.
-- always been very good that looking at the inner.
Hero within a person -- like Peter Parker from everyone of his characters has some kind of talented -- it happened that they have to overcome.
In the case of the education is more than eight worldwide cannot read a few hundred million people worldwide -- literate.
So the foundation is basically built upon the ideals.
That education and literacy or mathematics or even parts of some that we can bring to to the world.
But again with -- -- is our desire is our legacy and persons.
Will be from the fun.
-- -- that that.
In -- everything in a society so.
Suitable color -- to from the you know we have -- -- in the US but for the worldwide.
Communications all about graphic novels and and graphic here.
You know I have to ask and I have only known -- for a few minutes he thinks so humble Stanley what about a what he's not sitting here but humble I'm.
But this -- -- looks at the inner hero of a person do you do you meet some of that the kids who are benefiting from the Stanley Foundation will.
Let me put it this way.
When I started writing comics I was embarrassed because you know it yet this was years ago nobody had any respect for comic book.
They were considered to be read by a very young children or -- literate adults that's the way people thought of comic.
Now over the years it changed I'd like to feel that marvel had something to do him good -- starting using college level but February and the stories and we tried to put in characterizations.
The point is though.
We have found.
That comic books have helped more people to learn to read than anything else because.
Children who wouldn't normally be readers that I gonna wanna read a book they don't have any feeling for it.
But -- intrigued by the pictures and a comic.
And -- order to really understand the story you have to be able to read the words so they forced themselves to do what.
So kid came to me the other day and he said why don't we start a foundation.
Where we use comic books and a lot of other things you've learned to help educate.
Or obese children that are illiterate they can't read to bring literacy and an appreciation of Reading -- people.
Now I really have very little I have no oversight over the foundation at all.
But I'm happy to have my name used if it helps and head and his staff have been handling everything and I think it's a very commendable thing.
To try to.
Reading skills -- literacy lovely children.
-- -- -- Actually in this day -- -- where you know much of the classroom now it's portable.
And he can't read you certainly can't go on the Internet right because it's just not -- flash in the world and make everything out of pictures.
You know so I mean reading is just that that it's continuing work to continuing to be the things that really connect the Saul you have on final.
Oh -- and we hit one of the idea that thing came up with who's.
I think giving actors to to go into the classroom and helping the teachers learn how to engage the students through acting skills.
So we're looking at you know into America's commit to the costumes can -- -- -- it's not just for the -- never thought Carol -- that he teaches how to teach -- that didn't know.
-- -- every -- entertainment talk about things aren't multimedia for the I don't -- US section good interviewer you should do this professionally.
He hit a good care of thinking well.
Oh god let me -- maybe he'll he'll create Harris the -- girl seriously thought about working on it or anything better yeah only at bat I could be some other -- I -- Now you're you're you guys are wonderful theater -- the third chairman of the Stanley Foundation if people want to learn more -- -- ago.
It's the only foundation -- work OK that's very easy Stanley Foundation dot org.
Using your genius to teach kids how to read.
Wonderful stuff that's virtually ever put -- -- just wanna put on a -- partner hanging out with Stanley.
Usually resilient when he's not being in the other day -- I -- -- hit a little ahead Ollie.
