Hugh Jackman Remembers Stan Lee on 'Late Show': 'He Was A Creative Genius'

Hugh Jackman stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night (November 12) to promote his new film The Front Runner, but took the opportunity to discuss Stan Lee after he tragically passed away at the age of 95.

If you don’t know, Stan created some of the biggest superhero characters for Marvel, including X-Men.

“If you ever want to get a real understanding of where you’re at in the world, and you think, ‘I’m Wolverine, I’m walking into Comic-Con, this my spot, this is a good day for me,’” Hugh recalled. “And I was on a red carpet and I was the only one on there, and no one was taking my photo because at the other end was Stan Lee. There was about 300 photographers and interviewers all on Stan.”

“I remember Stan as a true gentlemen, who had this glint in his eye,” Hugh added. “He’s a creative genius, he thought outside the box, he created a whole universe that changed the lives of many people, mine included.”

That same evening, Hugh joined his co-star Mamoudou Athie, writer Jay Carson and director-writer Jason Reitman at the Yahoo News and Sony Pictures private screening of The Front Runner held at The Metrograph.
