Stan Lee, the visionary behind Marvel Comics and the creator of some of the most beloved comic book characters, including Spider-Man and the Avengers, will be the subject of an upcoming Disney+ documentary set to premiere on June 16, 2023. The documentary, produced by David Gelb, Brian McGinn, and Jason Sterman, promises to provide an in-depth exploration of Lee's life and legacy, offering a fitting tribute to someone who has changed the entertainment industry forever.
His legacy extends far beyond the pages of comic books, with his beloved cameos in Marvel movies introducing him to a whole new generation of fans. The documentary will feature archival footage of Lee, but there is no information yet on who else will be appearing.
This new effort follows a previous documentary released in 2021, titled "Marvel's Behind the Mask," which also explored the origins of Marvel Comics and how its characters have reflected the real world. It delved into Lee's impact on the comic book industry and his contribution to creating many beloved characters.
Lee's career began in 1941 when his first published work, a prose story, appeared in the fifth issue of Captain America Comics. However, it was during the 1960s that Lee truly solidified his reputation and tapped into a wellspring of pop-cultural creativity that would go down in history. Lee's characters were flawed and relatable, dealing with real-world issues such as social injustice and prejudice, which resonated with audiences worldwide.
Lee's appearances in Marvel Studios, movies and cameos in Marvel Comics, delighted fans worldwide. His catchphrase "Excelsior!" became synonymous with his name and his larger-than-life personality. Lee passed away in 2018 at the age of 95, leaving behind a legacy that will endure for generations to come.
With Gelb, McGinn, and Sterman producing and Gelb directing, the upcoming documentary promises to be a major production. The production team is experienced and talented, with a proven track record of producing high-quality content that resonates with audiences worldwide. The documentary is set to be a must-watch for comic book fans and anyone interested in the history of one of the world's most successful media franchises.
Lee's impact on the entertainment industry is immeasurable, and this upcoming documentary promises to be a fitting tribute to a man who forever changed the way we look at superheroes and comics.
