The “origin story” of Stan Lee is depicted in the new trailer that Marvel has just released, and it is sure to warm the hearts of superhero fans everywhere.
The film, titled Stan Lee, is a tribute to the life and talent of the man responsible for creating some of the most iconic characters in the history of comic books and movies.
The film, which will debut on Disney+ on June 16, tells the story of “His beginnings.” This is his legacy. To quote him in his own words.”
The name “Marvel” is practically synonymous with the American comic book writer, editor, publisher, and producer Stan Lee due to his role in the creation of iconic heroes and anti-villain teams like Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, and the Avengers, to name just a few.
For the first time, fans will now have access to a comprehensive feature on the creator and the opportunity to watch a collection of interview segments with him and those who were close to him, as well as footage from the early days of Marvel.
He narrates the first part of Stan Lee’s creative backstory during a black-and-white segment that depicts footage from the 1920s and 1930s and is part of the 90-second trailer that features Marvel comics throughout the decades.
He explained, “We were poor because it was during the Great Depression, but I read everything I could get my hands on.”
“And man, I felt there were no limits to where I could go.”
After that, he continued, “I tried to write the kind of stories that I would want to read.”
One of the commentators in the clip described Lee as having a “upbeat” demeanor at all times and stated that they had never seen him “angry.”
Several behind-the-scenes videos featuring him joking around with Marvel talent, such as the actor Paul Rudd who plays Ant-Man and footage of his numerous cameo appearances in Marvel films, are shared.
His origin story. His legacy. In his own words.

There are so many terrible things in the world that if you can entertain somebody for a while, it is a good thing,” Lee says in yet another voiceover that plays as additional clips of the creator working on the set are shown.
“You have to dive right in to make real improvements to the situation and the things that are going on.”
