Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment announced a tribute event celebrating the life of Stan Lee, held in partnership with Kevin Smith, Legion M, and Agents of Mayhem benefiting one of Stan’s favorite charities: The Hero Initiative, a charity supporting comic book creators, artists and writers in need.
“Excelsior! A Stan Lee Celebration” will take place on Wednesday, January 30 at Hollywood’s iconic TCL Chinese Theatre.
The Tribute will start in the TCL Chinese Theatre forecourt with fan-favorite speakers, an art exhibit celebrating Stan’s legacy by famed pop-culture artist Rob Prior, select costumes and props from Stan’s cameos and creations, a musical performance and a special moment of remembrance centered around Stan Lee’s hand and foot imprint.
After a red carpet arrival of guests, the evening will proceed with a private tribute inside the IMAX Theatre hosted by one of Stan’s biggest fans, Kevin Smith.
The event will feature conversations with celebrity speakers including:
- Mark Hamill
- Rob Liefeld (Co-Creator of Deadpool)
- Michael Uslan (Executive Producer, “The Dark Knight”)
- Vincent D’Onofrio
- Tom DeSanto (Producer, “X-Men,” “Transformers” franchise)
These speakers will share their favorite memories and personal stories of Stan. The evening will be rounded off with video tributes and live performances of Stan’s favorite music and poetry.
The tribute event is being produced by fan-owned entertainment company Legion M, which is revolutionizing the way entertainment is made in Hollywood by uniting a growing fan community of 50,000+ members, including more than 10,000 fan-owners. In addition to producing film and television projects, Legion M organized Stan Lee’s hand and foot imprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in 2017. Legion M is producing the tribute with the production and consulting company Agents of Mayhem whose founder Darren Passarello worked for Stan for several years.
Both companies are working in close partnership with Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment, the multimedia company founded in 2001 by the iconic comic book creator Stan Lee with his friend and business partner Gill Champion, who is the company’s president. Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment is the sole owner of the Stan Lee name and all new original content he created since 2001. Under the leadership of CEO Scott D. Williams and Gill Champion, the company has been and will continue to be the guardian of Stan Lee’s legacy and is excited to roll out new projects and new adventures Stan had been working on. On behalf of Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment, Chief Marketing Officer Bob Sabouni will be overseeing and guiding the tribute day alongside the other event partners.
