The legendary comics creator, Stan Lee, recently passed away in November. Fans all over the world mourned his passing! They are not kidding when they say this man is a legend. Which is why on January 30, 2019 Stan Lee will be getting an all-star tribute to honor him. Guests will be treated to a public appreciation in the theater’s courtyard followed by a private tribute inside.
The event, titled Excelsior! A Stan Lee Celebration, will take place at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California. Excelsior will be hosted by filmmaker and comics fan Kevin Smith’s investment company, Legion M, brand company Agents of Mayhem and Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment. POW! Was founded by Stan lee and Gill Champion in 2001. Champion described Stan Lee as a “Unique and unforgettable human being, truly adored worldwide! He loved coming to work and creating endless new ideas and stories and in spite of his genius he was a relatable and kind man that his admirers could relate to with ease.” I think fans around the world would agree with Champions statement, which is why his passing in November was so hard on everyone.
In the theater courtyard guests will be able to view an art exhibit celebrating Stan Lee’s legacy by pop-culture artist Rob Prior. Guests will also be able to view select costumes and props from Stan Lee’s cameos and creations, as well as, a musical performance and a special moment of remembrance centered around his hand and foot imprints.
Inside the theater, host Kevin Smith will host conversations with Star Wars Mark Hamill and Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefield. Also included in the conversations is Batman executive producer Michael Uslan, actor Vincent D’Onofrio, and Tom DeSanto who produced X-Men and Transformers. The event will end with video tributes and live performances of Stan Lee’s favorite music and poetry.
POW! CEO Scott D. Williams puts everyone’s thoughts into words beautifully, “We are honored for this chance for Stan’s fans and friends to come together. Despite his passing, Stan Lee’s name, work and legacy will continue to flourish and be revealed to the world. We are committed to honor Stan Lee’s extraordinary life and work.” Fans around the world appreciate that Mr. Williams!
If you are hoping for a chance to attend the event honoring Stan Lee, you better act quickly. Only a few number of tickets will be available to fans for the tribute and they went on sale yesterday. All proceeds will benefit the Hero Initiative.
