Marvel has announced that a documentary celebrating the life of the iconic Stan Lee will be released in 2023.
“100 years of dreaming. 100 years of creating. 100 years of Stan Lee,” Marvel Entertainment wrote in a caption that accompanied the teaser. “Stan Lee, an Original documentary, is streaming 2023 on @DisneyPlus.”
A blog post by the studio reads in part: “Today, on what would have been Stan Lee’s 100th birthday, we celebrate his legacy as the co-creator of such legendary characters as Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Thor, Silver Surfer, Ant-Man, Nick Fury, The Avengers and hundreds more. We’ve seen Stan in the pages of Marvel Comics as well as on screen with Marvel Studios’ many cameos.”
Celebration of Lee’s centennial launched earlier this month through Genius Brands International, which released a new online store with three exclusive Lee-branded collections.
The entertainment company owns the rights to the name, voice, likeness, signature and licensing of intellectual property relating to Lee and is signed on to co-executive produce the “Stan Lee” documentary.
