Russo Bros. To Develop ‘Stan Lee’ Documentary

Russo Bros. To Develop 'Stan Lee' Documentary

Behold true believers, Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame directors, the Russo Brothers, are reportedly working on a documentary honoring the late great Stan Lee.

With Avengers: Endgame reportedly set to be Joe and Anthony Russo’s last directorial job within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, their thoughts are turning to their future prospects, and one such project looks set to keep them within the Marvel family with a documentary honoring the former creative leader of Marvel Comics himself, Stan Lee.

Given Lee’s pop culture influence and contribution to help make Marvel the household name it is today, it is unclear at this point if this documentary will be a series or a feature film.

Becoming known by mainstream audiences as the guy who makes cameos in almost every Marvel movie, including the R-rated 2015 hit Deadpool and an animated posthumous appearance in 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Set to make a final appearance in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, fans will have to wait and see if the cameo can top the surprising yet touching tribute made in the traditional Marvel Studios logo for Captain Marvel in which every image ordinarily taken by heroes and villains of the past MCU movies were instead all of Stan Lee’s 11 years of cameos with a touching tagline of simply “Thank You Stan” which was met with applause in many  screenings of the movie.

Stan Lee passed away in November 2018 at the age of 95 due to suffering a cardiac arrest with respiratory failure and congestive heart failure after earlier that year being diagnosed with pneumonia.

Aside from his movie cameos, Stan Lee is known for co-creating famous Marvel characters such as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Daredevil and the Fantastic Four. Lee has also made cameo appearances outside of Marvel movies and television in episodes of shows such as The Simpsons, The Big Bang Theory, Heroes and Entourage.
