Excelsior: Hollywood Reacts to Stan Lee Death ( Box Office 2019 )


We were saddened to learn earlier today that Marvel Comics legend and long-time impresario Stan Lee has passed away at age 95. Now all of Hollywood is paying tribute to Stan "The Man", and you can check out all the tributes following the Stan Lee death below.
Born Stanley Martin Lieber in 1922, he is best known as the co-creator of most of the major characters at the genesis of the Marvel Universe, including The Incredible Hulk, The Mighty Thor, The Invincible Iron Man, and The Astonishing Ant-Man The Uncanny X-Men alongside Jack Kirby. With Steve Ditko, he co-created Doctor Strange and Spider-Man, as well as Daredevil with Bill Everett. He also revived old Timely heroes from the 1940's including Sub-Mariner and Joe Simon & Jack Kirby's Captain America. The Avengers followed in 1963. While other iconic characters followed, including The Inhumans, Silver Surfer, Black Panther and The Falcon, Lee's main creative contributions in the early 60's formed the core of Marvel Comics.
The founding of Marvel Studios, with 2008's Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk leading the way, saw Lee serving as executive producer on all these films, and became famous for making cameos in almost every one alongside his famous creations such as Thor, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Ant-Man.
No one has had more of an impact on my career and everything we do at Marvel Studios than Stan Lee. Stan leaves an extraordinary legacy that will overlive us all. Our thoughts are with his daughter, his family, and his millions of fans. #ThankYouStan #Excelsior!
