The Hollywood Reporter has shared a moving tribute to Stan Lee written by Ant-Man and the Wasp star Evangeline Lilly.
Yesterday. Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee passed away at 95 and actors who have portrayed characters created by the late icon were among the many reflecting on his legacy. Now, Evangeline Lilly, who portrays The Wasp in Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man films, has penned a tribute to Lee that reflects on his legacy and how the universe he helped create can continue to inspire people and offer them hope.
You can read an excerpt below!
Stan liked to be alive. Around Stan, life always felt sexier. There was a lustrousness to how he would look at you with those childlike eyes, talk to you in that gravelly voice and drape his arm around you like you were an old pal. It seemed, with Stan, there wasn’t enough time in life for strangers – everyone was a friend.
Stan’s aura of vibrance and joy was infectious. “No wonder he creates exciting and wonderful worlds, and characters,” I would think, “our wonderful world still excites him.”
At a time when the world feels so tragic, I hope Stan’s life and legacy will remind us, today, of the wonders and the hope that still exists among, and within us. I want to keep telling Stan’s stories because I want to keep that spirit alive with him as I carry on angling to “skid in sideways” to my bitter end with as much zeal and panache as Stan managed to. He is an inspiration to me.
Live on, Stan. Legends never die.
