This breaks my heart. The day that I received my diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer in September, I remember wondering if I would live long enough to see the sequel to Avenger’s Infinity War that is scheduled for release in May 2019. That is how much of a fan I am of Stan Lee and the actors in his movies.
Per TMZ ;
Stan Lee, the man responsible for much of the Marvel Universe, has died … Stan’s daughter tells TMZ.
We’re told an ambulance rushed to Lee’s Hollywood Hills home early Monday morning and he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. We’re told that’s where he died.
Lee had suffered several illnesses over the last year or so — he had a bout of pneumonia and vision issues.
Stan started Marvel with Jack Kirby in 1961 with The Fantastic Four. He went on to create Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man and The Avengers.
Stan made cameo appearances in all of the Marvel movies.
Lee had a rocky relationship with Marvel once the company went full-tilt Hollywood. He sued the company in 2002 for royalties he said he was owed for the first “Spider-Man” movie. Three years later he settled the case for $10 million.
“Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” is the latest installment of the film’s franchise and will be released next month.
Lee is survived by his daughter, J.C. His wife of 69 years, Joan, died in 2017.
There’s a saying that when men have been married a long time and their wife dies first, that it’s not long before they die. I’ve known that to happen to two friends. May Stan and Joan both rest in peace.
I always wait until the theaters are not crowded — plan to see it after New Year’s.

Anxious “Star Wars” fans who will tolerate none of your spoilers have broken one box office record — and the movie just came out.
Ticket vendor Fandango says “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has already broken its record for the most tickets sold for any film over its entire theatrical run. It usurped “Jurassic World” — another nostalgia-heavy flick — for the title.
Fandango, which sells tickets to a majority of theater screens in the U.S., did not specify the value of the tickets sold. But The Associated Press reported earlier today that the film has earned more than $100 million in presale tickets in North America. What’s more, according to a poll on the site, 63 percent of respondents had plans to see “The Force Awakens” more than once in theaters.
So yes, theaters will…
