“Damn…Rip Stan,” wrote Ryan Reynolds. “Thanks for everything.”
Tom Rothman, Chairman, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group, said in a statement, “Original and genius are two very overused words in the world today, but Stan was both. Add irrepressible and irreplaceable, and you begin to describe the man. We have all lost a true superhero. We will greatly miss our friendly neighborhood Stan Lee.”
Geoff Johns, producer, author and former chief creative officer at DC Entertainment, told Deadline, “I’m incredibly saddened to hear about to hear about Stan Lee’s passing. He was obviously a genius, the creator of so many wonderful characters, worlds and universes.
