Stan Lee’s own Pow! Entertainment recently released a statement saying that the comic book creator was laid to rest on Friday in a small, private funeral conducted in accordance with the writer’s wishes.

Neil Gaiman Slams Bill Maher For Disrespecting Stan Lee’s Legacy

As the outpouring of online tributes to the late Stan Lee continue, this period of collective mourning has inevitably seen its share of conflict, much of it stemming from a controversial blog post written by Real Time host Bill Maher.

In this well-circulated piece, the comedian and political commentator used the renowned writer’s recent passing as a jumping-off point for a blanket criticism of comic book culture in general, arguing that comics represent an unimportant and juvenile art form that doesn’t deserve to be taken seriously.

Naturally, the fan backlash came hard and fast, and among these condemnations was a tweet from Neil Gaiman, a writer perhaps best known for his comic book series The Sandman. The author’s short message dismisses the controversial piece as a cry for attention before observing how Lee’s legacy and popularity overshadow Maher’s.

Marvel Fans Think Deadpool Should Take Over Stan Lee’s Cameos

The Stan Lee cameo has been a cherished tradition in Marvel Comics adaptations for many years now, and even in the wake of his passing, the writer still has at least a couple more scenes lined up in future McU installments. But once Lee makes his last onscreen appearance in the Marvel Studios franchise, some fans have suggested a new tradition to take its place – namely, give Deadpool the cameos.

In some ways, this idea makes a fair amount of sense, seeing how the meta-humored Wade Wilson is that rare Marvel hero who can often get away with defying the laws of continuity. What’s more, with the Disney/Fox deal on the horizon, this should soon be manageable from a legal perspective. On the other hand, many fans would no doubt reject the idea of anyone taking Lee’s place, especially a character that he himself didn’t create,

Stan Lee Once Surprised Robert Downey Jr. At His 50th Birthday

Following Stan Lee‘s tragic death on Monday at the age of 95, those who knew him or were lucky enough to get to meet him have been sharing stories online that remind us how kind, generous and just generally how much fun he was as a person. Case in point, this anecdote which recalls how Lee surprised Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr,. at his birthday party a few years ago.

According to Lee’s longtime manager Brad Herman, the comic book legend was invited to Downey Jr.’s big 50th birthday bash but couldn’t make it. So he sent a note to the Tony Stark actor on – what else? – Spider-Man stationary. In typical Stan style, the note read: “May Destiny grant you good health and much time. You deserve so much more than this simple rhyme.” He signed off with his classic catchphrase: “Excelsior.”

Spider-Man Director Didn’t Want Stan Lee To Have A Cameo In The Film

The first major feature-length Marvel Comics adaptation to include the late Stan Lee was 2000’s X-Men, so by the time 2002’s Spider-Man went into production, these cameos had yet to be solidified as an established tradition, and apparently director Sam Raimi wasn’t too happy with the idea.

Speaking to THR, the filmmaker recalled how producer Avi Arad pushed him into giving Lee some screen time in Peter Parker’s first cinematic outing:

“I got the job for Spider-Man in 1999. And [Marvel head] Avi Arad said, ‘I want you to put Stan in the movie.’ And I was like, ‘No. I know Stan, and he can’t act.’ And Avi was, ‘I want him in the movie. We did it for X-Men, we’re doing it here.’ Now imagine you’re a minor director in England doing Macbeth and you’re told, ‘Put the writer in the play.’ It sounds absurd.

Stan Lee’s Final Year Was Full Of Betrayal, Chaos And Unhappiness

As the tributes flood in for the departed Stan Lee, it’s important to remember that while the great man left us a magnificent and inspiring legacy of superheroism, the last year of his life was pockmarked by unnecessary drama and sinister figures. I’ve been writing about Lee’s problems for a while now, and together, they make for a series of increasingly strange and worrying stories that had many concerned for the wellbeing of the comic book legend.

They began last summer when Joan, his wife of seven decades died. Sensing vulnerability, the vultures swooped in and began picking at his fortune and exploiting his fame. There’d been repeated reports of power struggles over who will care for Lee, with those responsible ending up controlling his financial affairs. Into this came florist turned publicist Jerry Olivarez, Lee’s longtime road manager Max Anderson and memorabilia dealer Keya Morgan

Stan Lee Wanted To Make More Marvel Cameos Before He Died

Few people have a better understanding of Stan Lee’s immense contributions to comic book history than the man who took over his role as Marvel Comics Eic, Roy Thomas. So when the news broke earlier this week of the writer’s passing, it figures that Lee’s old friend and colleague had some reverent words to say about the legend, while also recalling his continued enthusiasm for his patented Marvel movie cameos.

Speaking to Bleeding Cool, Thomas reminisced about Lee’s final days, saying that he was still keen to return to the big screen so long as it didn’t create too many problems:

“At that time, it was obvious that he lacked much of the old Stan Lee energy that everybody had got to know at conventions and in movie cameos, but when I asked him about future cameos, he expressed a real interest in making them,

Kevin Feige Teases Stan Lee Surprises In Upcoming Marvel Studios Movies

Stan Lee’s passing was a sad day for all. Over the last 50 years, his groundbreaking comic book work in the 1960s and beyond dominated the genre and went a long way to making Marvel Comics what it is today, which itself spawned the outrageously successful and critically beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as the X-Men franchise and myriad other standalone features.

And though those films might have spanned multiple planets and eras, there’s been one constant throughout all of them: a cheeky and often humorous cameo by Lee himself. In fact, he became so notorious for popping up that he made an appearance in the PlayStation 4 smash Marvel’s Spider-Man and, even more unexpectedly, in the DC film Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.

Though you’d expect these to finish now, it’s been widely reported that Marvel Studios (presumably conscious of Lee’s age) shoot

Speaking to Collider, the star shared a quick memory from the times he met Lee in person.

“I only met him a few times,” Stan said. “I never got a full one-on-one with him but he was always like, ‘Remember, Bucky’s one of the good ones. Bucky’s a good guy.’”

Though Lee himself wasn’t involved in the creation of Captain America’s oldest friend, his work as a writer proved fundamental in shaping the universe the character now occupies.

And as a man whose career is utterly inseparable from the Marvel brand, it figures that Kevin Feige would be full of kind words for the legendary comic book creator.

The current Marvel Studios head met Lee on his first major film job as associate producer for 2000’s X-Men, for which Stan Lee would shoot the first in a long line of Marvel movie cameos. Since then, the pair have reunited many times, and in an interview with THR, Feige recalled how Lee would always bring some fresh energy to the on-set atmosphere.

Jon Favreau has found his Mandalorian.

Pedro Pascal is in negotiations to join the upcoming “Star Wars” TV show titled “The Mandalorian,” an insider with knowledge of the project tells TheWrap.

The “Game of Thrones” actor would become the first cast member to join the series, which will air on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+. Disney and reps for Pascal did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

The series, which is set in between “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens,” follows a Boba Fett-like character, described as “a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic…” In “Star Wars” lore, Mandalorians made the iconic armor that bounty hunter Boba Fett, and his “father” Jango Fett (he was technically an unaltered clone of Jango) wore in the films.
