Marvel has announced a documentary about former Marvel Comics president Stan Lee, who has created many superhero characters. The film will arrive on Disney+ in 2023, which would be Lee’s 100th birthday. The Hollywood Reporter reports it.
At the same time, the studio released a teaser for the upcoming film. Lee began working for Marvel’s predecessor, Timely Comics, in 1939. By the 1960s, he had risen from temporary editor to editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics. In 1972 he became a publisher. Stan Lee has collaborated with various artists to create Spider-Man, the Hulk, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, Thor, the X-Men, and many other iconic characters from the Marvel Universe.
In November 2018, Lee died at a Los Angeles medical center at the age of 95. She suffered from several serious illnesses at once, suffering from severe pneumonia and experiencing vision problems.
It was previously reported that John Woo will produce a movie based on the comics by Stan Lee. The director is still the producer of the project, but can probably take over the production as well. Read more here.
