The Hollywood Reporter reports that Marvel has struck a deal with the Stan Lee Universe “to license the name and likeness of Lee for use in future feature films and television productions, as well as Disney theme parks, various ‘experiences’ and merchandising.” Stan Lee Universe is a joint venture between Genius Brands and POW! Entertainment.
Despite his passing in 2018, Stan Lee’s legacy has continued to live on thanks to his contributions to the world of comics and superheroes. This twenty-year deal ensures we won’t forget about the legend anytime soon. Lee, who was the writer and editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics in the 1960s, helped create a number of superheroes we know and love today.
