When Will Disney's Stan Lee Documentary Be Released

Despite the fact that the ultimate comic book hero died just over four years ago, his imprint on pop culture has never felt more relevant. Marvel Entertainment has announced the imminent release of a documentary on the legendary comic book writer and longtime Marvel Comics publisher.

According to Variety, Marvel previewed the next project on Twitter with a 25-second teaser video:

The video contained clips from some of Lee's most well-known cameos in the MCU (he made 22 in all), as well as an artistic portrait of the perpetually bespectacled artist. There are no specifics about the documentary other than the fact that it will be an original Disney+ project that will air in 2023.

Lee, who died in 2018, co-created Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, the Avengers, X-Men, and the Fantastic Four, among many more.

Genius Brands International will co-executive produce the upcoming documentary after acquiring the exclusive global rights to Lee's name, voice, signature, and physical resemblance in 2020.

According to Variety, the firm launched its Stan Lee Centennial earlier this month at the Los Angeles Comic-Con, where admirers of the late artist signed a birthday card with personal remarks about how Lee and his work touched their lives.

To commemorate Lee's 100th anniversary, the company also created a new online store.

“We are thrilled to celebrate Stan Lee’s 100th birthday today with multiple initiatives that pay tribute to this true cultural icon starting with creating a marketplace for his fans and with telling his fascinating story in the upcoming film premiering on Disney+,” Genius Brands’ chairman and CEO Andy Heyward said in a press statement.
