Marvel has signed an agreement with Stan Lee Universe to “license Lee’s name and likeness for use in future movies and TV shows, as well as various Disney theme parks,”experiences” and merchandising”. This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Despite the death of Stan Lee in 2018, his legacy continues to live on thanks to his contribution to the world of comic books and superheroes. The 20-year deal guarantees that the legendary creator will not be forgotten. In particular, its terms allow Marvel to use “Lee’s name, voice, likeness and signature in movies and television projects, as well as to use images, existing footage and existing audio recordings featuring him.”
Stan Lee was the screenwriter, author and editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics. He helped create a number of superheroes who found millions of fans through comics and movies.
Lee also starred in 37 cameos in Marvel movies. He last appeared in Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel. It is possible that a cameo will be created with him again, but the agreement does not guarantee this. He can also be presented as a figurine, a print on T-shirts or even integrated into attractions.
