Disney Commemorates Stan Lee’s 75 Years at Marvel

1

The Chairman of The Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger, recently presented Stan “The Man” Lee with a one-of-a-kind bronze statue to commemorate the legendary comic book writer’s 75-year career at Marvel.

The bronze features Spider-Man, one of Lee’s most famous co-creations (in collaboration with Steve Ditko), alongside Mickey Mouse, a nod to Marvel’s acquisition by Disney in 2009.

Since Disney’s purchase of Marvel, the two entities have found plenty of shared box-office success with record-setting films like “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3” and “Captain America: Civil War.” Many of the characters in these Marvel Studios’ films were co-created by Lee, including Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Doctor Strange.

Stan Lee has worked in the comics industry since he was a teenager, where he got his start as an assistant at Timely Comics in 1939. He is primarily known for his foundational work at Marvel, alongside artists Jacky Kirby and Steve Ditko. With these collaborators, he had a hand in creating the X-Men, Fantastic Four and other staples of Marvel’s IP stable. For his achievements, he received a National Medal of Arts in 2008, and was inducted into both the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995.

Marvel’s The Inhumans Series Heads To IMAX Theaters & ABC

tumblr_ni50g4txu31rf5t8co1_1280

IMAX Corp., Marvel Television and Disney|ABC Television Group today announced an innovative agreement to exclusively premiere a new Marvel’s The Inhumans series in IMAX commercial theaters, marking the first time a live-action television series has debuted in this manner.

Under the agreement, a version of the first two episodes The Inhumans series – produced in conjunction with ABC Studios and filmed entirely with IMAX digital cameras – will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX for two weeks at the beginning of September 2017. ABC plans to then premiere the weekly series in fall, with additional exclusive content that can only be seen on the network.

The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s The Inhumans series will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.

ABC, IMAX and Marvel Television also intend to work together to create a joint marketing and promotion plan for the series across their proprietary media platforms – which would be the first such cross-platform marketing launch of a television series. Today’s agreement also marks IMAX’s first time as a financing participant in a TV pilot and series.

“This unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC Television Group. “It highlights Disney|ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our very best programming and increasing global engagement and reach.”

“This first-of-its-kind multi-platform production, distribution and marketing agreement brings together Marvel Television’s unique brand of entertainment, ABC’s unparalleled audience and IMAX’s brand and global fanboy demographic,” said IMAX CEO, Rich Gelfond. “It also takes our decades-long relationship with The Walt Disney Company to a whole new level, jointly breaking new ground in the industry. We are confident our exhibition partners will be excited to work with us on this innovative launch of a series across the IMAX network.”

“We’re happy to see this unique deal come together, working with our partners,” said Dan Buckley, President, Marvel Television, Publishing & Brand. “In an ever-changing world of distribution and consumption, it’s very exciting to be part of a groundbreaking initiative that takes us to the forefront of this evolution.”
