The Potential Topics Of The Stan Lee Documentary

Marvel claims that the recently reveal documentary, which is expect to include old footage and interviews with the comic book author over the years, would honor the life and legacy of Lee. The movie would probably begin by focusing on Lee’s early years in New York City when he experienced the Great Depression as a boy and discovered a passion for reading and writing. Later in life, Lee would work his way up through the ranks of Timely Publications, a modest family-run company that would eventually become Marvel Comics with Lee’s assistance.

The documentary will be able to explore a lot of Lee’s towering legacy, which has a significant impact on contemporary superhero comics and movies. Through the debut of his characters during Lee’s early years at Marvel Comics, he helped establish a more realistic style for superhero comics. Later, Lee fought the Comics Code Authority over its arbitrary limits, which led to the CCA changing its rules. Both events had a significant influence on the development of comics.

The Stan Lee documentary’s aim and tenor are probably comparable to Robert Downey Jr.’s new “Sr.” The Netflix film chronicles the life and career of his late father, Robert Downey Sr., a significant underground filmmaker. The movie gave Downey Jr. his first 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating, and now the recently unveiled Stan Lee documentary has a chance to win the same kind of critical acclaim. Only time will tell when Marvel airs the Stan Lee documentary on Disney+ in 2023.
