  • Andy Lee is the lovechild of Stan Lee

  • As an Australian I can denounce Andy as much more than a B grade radio disc jockey who together with another guy called Hamish do a lot of horsing around shit, that's about it, some of it is funny a lot of it is try hard, he's more on Howard Stern level fame than Colbert. And I've never heard of Hugh's wife either maybe before my time but I wouldn't have called her famous exactly.

  • Fans love Stan Lee because they actually know very little about him and how he treated talented artists.. he takes credit for so much more than he actually created... and the real creators remained penniless, so this is why Stan Lee actually sucks. I've known this for years but oh well.

  • Huge jacked man.

  • I didn't know a wolverine was a ani mal until you said it i though it came from wolf

  • Wolverine could've been Wolfyrine... 🤣🤣🤣

  • I'm Australian and that was epic. Andy Lee and Hugh Jackman!!! I wish Hamish was there as well but it was still awesome.

  • When you're future wife turns down mcjagger to finish dinner

  • "You can tell Mick that I'm with Hugh Jackman." GOALS

  • That is a sweet Mick Jagger story.

  • Hugh is zaddy af

  • Que excelente ser humano eres Hugh Jackman!!

  • I really hope Hugh Jackman portrays Wolverine

  • Jackman is incredibly talented. He’s great in everything he does. Too bad Colbert sucks! I try to watch him but, it’s really hard to watch him and his shi$&y show!

  • Hugh is always class

  • This is my first time re-watching an interview.

  • Ah hugh Jackman that legend best movie x-men wolverine ever made excelllent work your fan.

  • Anyone else miss hugh playing wolverine?

  • Nice mention to Beaconsfield Parade, Hamish & Andy

  • Man I know Hugh can't keep the Wolverine physique all the time, but he seems abnormally skinny in this interview or maybe it's just me...

  • If someone stayed at my dinner party over getting messed up with jagger….

  • i think it was good he didn't know about the wolverine-it helped him make it his own

  • 4:53 What an awkward giggle kinda sounds like

  • And we'll never forget how you're an ally to the Trumps.

  • Andy Lee is a good man, Hugh is great in this

  • Anyone notice Hugh's obvious Australian accent?? Kinda different from the movies..

  • Wolverin Hugh Jackman is the best

  • About this Gary Hart movie from like 30 yrs ago. Hugh! What are you thinking? Nobody remembers this guy. His political career was over as fast as it started. Stick with the more modern stuff. The Oscar will be yours 1 patient.

  • Take Comrade Trump and his republiCON cronies back to Australia with you, Hugh. Throw 'em to the some of the other crazy animals, there.

  • due to excessive stretching and squeezing body hugh looking much older than his age

  • He’s a fun storyteller 😊

  • Never have I ever been more proud to be an aussie

  • Stan lee.. changed my childhood and adulthood with marvel comics and movies

  • *By left standards, Bill Maher should lose his job*

  • God damn hes got a completely and utterly different voice as wolverine and pretty much all his characters compared to real life

  • The charisma that this guy carries is just incredible!

  • Somewhere in heaven, he and Jack Kirby are laughing at each other’s scrapped ideas

  • Hugh “I didn’t know a wolverine was a real animal” Jackman

  • This damn video should be 10 seconds long

  • The dislike button Is 666. WTH!!?!?!

  • Jackman's research on wolves actually wasn't completely wasted. Wolverine has spent spent some time with wolves in the comics, but yeah he should've actually looked up the character's namesake.

  • Both are amazing. Both are respectable. Both are lovable. Both are heroes! Rest In Peace Stan Lee!

  • RIP Stan Lee. Thank you for all the characters you created we know and love. Sincerely, The whole world

  • Google is your friend, Hugh.

  • I didn't even know Captain Jack Sparrow had a BR-tv channel till I saw this commentSection.POtC6!

  • Stan Lee was a legend... but there's one thing people forget about him, it's his hatred of the lima bean. Stan Lee was a large proprietor of the Anti-Lima bean agenda, and lobbied against Lima beans being added to chiptloes menu. While pinto and black beans reign supreme, you can thank Stan Lee for all the hard work he put in on the front lines of the Bean Wars of 1987.

  • Dude is in impossibly good shape. I'm hoping he pops in for another go or two at Wolvie if Marvel does indeed bring the X-Men into the MCU with the acquisition of Fox by parent company Disney. Damn classy fellow as well.

  • Wow, that caught me by surprise, didn't know Wolverines are actual animals!

  • he looks so skinny now

  • I bet you know that 75% of that audience, including stephen, didn't know that a wolverine was an animal.

  • that down under intro make this interview legendary

  • Anyone else feel bad they feel the need to click on a political brainwashing show just for some insight into something unrelated to politics.


  • Hugh like Jackman, I wanna step back man. Aardvark jizz is fast like Mac RAM.

  • Appreciating the aussie love in this video 😂

  • Never seen many comments when the Wolverine creator died last year..

    • Yeah ,they think because he cameod in every film he created every character. Yeah Len died last year (as did his co creator for swamp thing Bernie Wrightson) He cameod in X-Men days of future past along with Chris Claremont in the Senate scene.

    • It's a shame Stan Lee eclipsed all the Marvel creators. Millennials and Marvel "fanboys" think Stan Lee created all the Marvel characters. By the way I didn't know Len Wein passed away last year. :(

  • I think his name is " huge act man"

  • The price of my ranch is going up every day because of its history and how important it is to the united states as a whole. Its the royal see of b s ranch. Its over 6500 years of planning to get to the bottom of where life started on planet earth. Its buried under my ranch. Its where life started under the ocean. Its the center of life's creation on our entire planet. That's why its mine. Its my fucking planet. Get over it. I'm not here to kill you all. I'm here to tell you the truth and enlighten you all to the real story behind the background hidden from all of you until now

  • yo RIP Stanley

  • Does anyone know the name of the song they played when he came out?

  • whenever hugh shaves all i see are balls on his chin

  • 03:36 "you were meth head actor..."

  • wow. I think Hugh Jackman could have been a great bruce banner. In that clip i got Bill Bixby vibes from his look and voice from the 70s hulk

  • 💿💿💿 #💿💿💿💿 💿💿💿 #💿💿💿💿 *Jesus Christ is the only way to God* *He died and rose from the dead* *He promises you eternal life* *He will also heal your body!*

  • Meanwhile, Bill Maher's using Stan Lee's death to mock him and jab at Trump! Seriously, fuck Bill Maher!

  • where's Hamish?!

  • I hear Hugh Jackman actually lived with the kangaroos for a year in preparation for his up coming role in the the action thriller " Tie Me Kangaroo Down"

  • RIP Stan Lee 1922-2018 thank you for everything

  • Its so nice he went and acknowledge Andy and Beck! Andy is a very noticeable celebrity, in fact i listen to his and hamish podcast every night as i fall asleep. So happy to see andy and finally see bec

  • Hugh is great but this host, man just not feeling it

  • Oiii moy gosh, hes go un accent? Woayhww

  • Stan Lee is not dead...he's just chilling inside the soul stone

  • Whose cutting some damn onions??? R.I.P Stan Lee 😪

  • Andy!!!!!

  • I didn't even know you still did a show Stephen. Thought it was just orange man bad

  • How a man can be soooooo handsome!!!! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 If I were a girl, there's nothing in this world could stop me from marring u 😭😭😭😭😭

  • All those read meats he ate every single day for 10 years during his tenure as the Wolverine, start to show their toll. He shouldn't be looking THAT old. Not yet, anyway.

  • they literally talked about stan lee for less then a minuet .screw you btw Stephen Colbert your such a fake attention getting person!!

  • He looks 35

  • Stan isn’t dead, he’s alive in all of us

  • 3:36 I swear to god I thought he said Meth Head actor.

  • I think it's time to BRING OVER THE RIGHTS OF XMEN/FANTASTIC FOUR TO MARVEL STUDIOS stan died just give it up FOX we"re fans want to see in one universe all stan lee's character that he create as in one universe not SEPERATED

  • He is really good friends with Ivanka and Jared Kushner. “A man is known by the company he keeps”

  • I watched the prestige this morning

  • Who were the two people he was saying hello to in the audience or is he being really nice to random people haha

  • Anyone else noticing his glossy eye lids?!

  • Jack Kirby was the creative genius, Stan Lee was the salesman.

    • Carter Kinoy exactly,he was the face of Marvel.Terrible that Kirby’s family don’t get any money from the films.But Stan did

  • I told my friend about Stan lee the day he died he started to cry and freak out

  • Hugh Jackman rocks. And he'll rock forever 💜

  • Sorry, didn't actually dislike the vid but gave it a thumbs down just to put the number on 666... Silly really but couldn't resist :)

  • Everyone is Stan Lee fan when he die I bet u can't even name his 3 songs

  • This guy is the ultimate human being. I still can't process the fact that a guy like this exists. He's got to be an alien surely. ....I love aliens.

  • Stan Lee motivates me to start drawing heroes

  • Hugh jackman is giving off a jeff goldblum vibe here

  • Hugh really is an actors, Actor! Details are in the micro-expressions - and you know someone is a great story teller when the content isn’t that impressive but the delivery is superb

  • Can't believe you put that you had down under play when he came out

  • Thanks for every Stan Lee. Rest In Peace. Excelsior!

  • I know Andy Lee because he oftenly tweets about Australian Cricket Team

  • What's the song in the beginning?

  • Well, I learned something new today. I didn't know a Wolverine was an animal either, lol.
