Lee was apparently still struggling with his case of aspiration pneumonia, but was “alert and positive” just days before his death. Stan Lee’s death certificate also revealed that he had been cremated and the ashes were given to his daughter.
Stan Lee’s family members held a private funeral for him on November 16th. POW! Entertainment is also said to be planning a public memorial for Lee, more details to come.
While fans are still shocked about this loss of Stan Lee, they can rest easy knowing they can see him back up on the big screen for a Marvel movie soon. It is believed that Lee had already filmed cameos for Captain Marvel and Avengers 4, but Lee’s appearance in any superhero movie past that is still unclear.
This will be great for fans to see Stan Lee on the big screen a few final times in this great Marvel cinematic universe.
Stan Lee said “I used to think what I did was not very important,” he told the Chicago Tribune in April 2014. “People are building bridges and engaging in medical research, and here I was doing stories about fictional people who do extraordinary, crazy things and wear costumes. But I suppose I have come to realize that entertainment is not easily dismissed.”(The Hollywood Reporter)
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also paid tribute. “No one has had more of an impact on my career and everything we do at Marvel Studios than Stan Lee,” Feige said. “Stan leaves an extraordinary legacy that will outlive us all. Our thoughts are with his daughter, his family and the millions of fans who have been forever touched by Stan’s genius, charisma and heart.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
