Stan Lee's Daughter Slams Marvel & Disney, Says No One Treated Him Worse Than Those Two Companies

Stan Lee‘s daughter, Joan Celia (JC) Lee, is weighing in on the Sony vs. Marvel/Disney Spider-Man dispute.

If you don’t know, years and years ago, the Spider-Man franchise had been part of the Sony Pictures franchise before Disney launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At that time, both the studios formed a partnership so that the character could join the cinematic world.

Recently, the two studios, Sony and Disney/Marvel, were unable to reach an agreement about how much of a percentage each should receive for gross dollars. As of right now, Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man won’t appear in any Marvel Spider-Man movies.

JC said in a statement to TMZ, “Marvel and Disney seeking total control of my father’s creations must be checked and balanced by others who, while still seeking to profit, have genuine respect for Stan Lee and his legacy. Whether it’s Sony or someone else’s, the continued evolution of Stan’s characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view.”

“When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency,” she continued. “In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives.”

Stan Lee Did Not See 'Avengers: Endgame' Before His Death

Stan Lee did not see Avengers: Endgame.

The Marvel co-founder died before seeing the film, Marvel president Kevin Feige revealed during a Reddit AMA.

Stan loved to wait to see the final movie at the premiere, so unfortunately he did not get to see the finished movie. Stan got a download of the full story the day he came and shot his cameo,” he said.

Stan‘s cameo in the movie featured a ’70s version of himself.

“It’s his last one committed to film. I have to say, I think it’s astonishing that this would be his last cameo. It’s just kind of mind-boggling that he made it to the end of this run. I can’t believe it,” co-director Joe Russo previously confirmed.

Stan Lee's Former Manager Charged With Elder Abuse

Stan Lee‘s former business manager Keya Morgan has been charged with five counts of elder abuse against the Marvel legend.

The comic book writer passed away last year at the age of 95.

Keya‘s charges reportedly include false imprisonment, forgery, and fraud. An arrest warrant has been issued at $300,000.

Keya’s attorney, Alex Kessel, told People, “My client stands firmly on his presumption of innocence. I expect him to be completely exonerated of all charges. Mr. Morgan has never abused Mr. Stan Lee in any way.”

Keya was also arrested on suspicion of filing a false police report in June 2018. According to THR at the time, it was “suggested the incident was linked to a report that Lee was allegedly confronted by two gunmen during an attempted robbery at his home earlier that month.”

Stan Lee's Cause of Death Released

Stan Lee‘s cause of death has been confirmed as heart and respiratory failure.

The late Marvel legend, who died at the age of 95 on November 12 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, was also suffering from aspiration pneumonia according to his death certificate, obtained by TMZ.

Stan had been rushed from his home in Hollywood to Cedars-Sinai earlier in the month.

The certificate also says that he was cremated, and his ashes were returned to his daughter. He was listed as a writer in the publishing business as his occupation.

Our thoughts are with Stan‘s loved ones at this difficult time.

Bill Maher Disrespects Comic Book Culture After Stan Lee's Death

It seems as if Bill Maher is blaming Stan Lee for a comic book culture and even went as far as to say that Donald Trump “could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important.”

“The guy who created Spider-Man and the Hulk has died, and America is in mourning. Deep, deep mourning for a man who inspired millions to, I don’t know, watch a movie, I guess. Someone on Reddit posted, ‘I’m so incredibly grateful I lived in a world that included Stan Lee.‘ Personally, I’m grateful I lived in a world that included oxygen and trees, but to each his own,” the Real Time with Bill Maher host wrote on his blog on Saturday (November 17).

“Now, I have nothing against comic books – I read them now and then when I was a kid and I was all out of Hardy Boys. But the assumption everyone had back then, both the adults and the kids, was that comics were for kids, and when you grew up you moved on to big-boy books without the pictures,” he continued.

“But then twenty years or so ago, something happened – adults decided they didn’t have to give up kid stuff. And so they pretended comic books were actually sophisticated literature…And now when adults are forced to do grown-up things like buy auto insurance, they call it ‘adulting,’ and act like it’s some giant struggle,” Bill continued. “I’m not saying we’ve necessarily gotten stupider. The problem is, we’re using our smarts on stupid stuff. I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important.”
