Marvel posted the teaser for the project, aptly titled “Stan Lee”, on its Instagram with the caption: “100 years of dreaming. 100 years of creating. 100 years of Stan Lee.”
Lee’s legendary influence on the comic book industry will be celebrated in the documentary, as his resume boasts being the co-creator of characters including Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Black Panther, Hulk, X-Men, Thor and more.
Lee’s story is one of dedication and resilience. Starting at Marvel’s predecessor, Timely Comics, as an interim editor in 1939, Lee became editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics decades later in the ’60s. He eventually became the beloved face of the company to fans worldwide.

“Stan Lee” is slated for streaming on Disney+ in 2023.
