In one week, Stan Lee, an original documentary, begins streaming June 16 on Disney+.
Few people in the history of media — any media — has had a great an impact on modern culture as Stan Lee. Now, Marvel Entertainment and Disney+ brings us the story of Stan Lee’s life, in his own words.
Stan Lee lived to be 95 years old, and passed away November 12, 2018. Born December 28, 1922 as Stanley Martin Lieber, first got his start in the comics industry in 1939 as an assistant at Timely Comics, which would later become Marvel Comics. He quickly worked his way up the ranks and became an editor, and it was in this role that he helped shape the future of comics.
Lee is perhaps best known for co-creating characters like Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men, which have all gone on to become cultural icons and have been adapted into numerous films, television shows, and other media. These characters have become modern mythological figures, and Lee’s influence on the world of comics cannot be overstated.
Lee was known for making appearances in almost every Marvel movie released during his lifetime, and his cameos became a beloved tradition for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In his later years, Lee became a fan favorite for these appearances, which often featured him in humorous or unexpected roles.
Stan Lee comes to Disney+ subscribers on June 16.
