Stan Lee Tributes: Chris Evans & Other Celebrities Honor Late Marvel Icon On Social Media
Among those who paid homage to Lee were Seth Rogen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Gene Simmons and Captain America star Chris Evans and Disney CEO Bob Iger, who said in a statement: “Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created. A super hero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect. The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart.”
Two Marvel films are set to be released in 2019: Captain Marvel and Avengers: Infinity War Part II.
Rest in peace, Stan Lee. The many worlds of imagination & delight you created for humanity will last forever.
