Marvel and Disney announced that a new documentary about Stan Lee will debut on Disney+ in 2023.
Stan Lee passed away in 2018. December 28, 2022 was his 100th birthday. Lee is known for creating and co-creating several Marvel characters, including Spider-Man, the original Avengers, and the X-Men. He worked closely with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.
Lee mostly retired from Marvel in the 1990s, but was still salaried as a chairman emeritus. He appeared in nearly every Marvel film (whether part of the MCU or not) released through 2019, with posthumous appearances in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Captain Marvel, and Avengers: Endgame.
The announcement video for the Stan Lee documentary features clips of his cameos in various Marvel films. Watch it below.
In honor of Lee’s 100th birthday, the official Stan Lee Twitter account also shared a video of fan messages left for the legend at LA Comic Con:
The 2010 documentary “With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story” also explored Lee’s life and career.
