The House That Stan Built sending scads of costumed heroes your way.

Last December, Stan Lee promised Collider that every “important Marvel character” would soon be getting its own film. Yesterday, the publisher’s fourth-quarter 2007 earnings report made it clear that Lee wasn’t kidding.

The report — again, helpfully picked up by Collider — contains a bunch of boring numbers and terms like “total net sales” and “total operating income” — but it also spills a few interesting details about what Marvel’s got cooking on its front burner for stuff like movies, animated projects, and Broadway musicals. Read on, true believers:
