Stan Lee’s Many Accomplishments
Stan Lee is one of the co-creators of the all-famous Marvel characters. You may recognize Spider-Man, the X-Men, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, Ant-Man, the Wasp, the Fantastic Four, Black Panther, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, the Scarlet Witch and Black Widow. All of these characters have appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the X-Men currently being the single hold-out, although their return is teased in both Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
A teaser of the documentary shows footage of Stan Lee’s numerous minor roles and cameo appearances in the MCU. One of the recurring Easter Eggs in almost all Marvel movies and television shows is the cameo appearance of Stan Lee in various humorous roles, in addition to his executive producer role.

The entertainment company owns the rights to Stan Lee’s name, voice, likeness, signature and licensing of intellectual property relating to Lee. They also are signed on to co-executive produce the “Stan Lee” documentary.
Twitter’s official Stan Lee account posted a celebratory message for his birthday saying,
In addition to the new Stan Lee documentary, Marvel also plans to release many new Marvel movies and television shows. Some of these include Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania on February 17, 2023 and Secret Invasion in Spring 2023.
