Stan Lee's daughter releases powerful statement over Spider-Man debacle

Stan Lee's daughter has weighed in on the subject.

News emerged during the week that that Tom Holland's Spider-Man, a fan-favourite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, could be leaving the MCU.


Since then, everyone's gone just a little bit mad, with fans posting thousands of tweets and countless petitions being made to "save Spider-Man".

Sony Pictures also released a statement shedding more light on the situation, which you can read more about here.

But it is Stan Lee's daughter's words that have been the most powerful throughout this saga so far.

In a statement issued to TMZ, Joan Celia Lee made her feelings about the whole thing extremely clear.


She said: "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 finished her statement by saying: "In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney's executives."

Lee, who created Spider-Man, died in November of 2018 at the age of 95.
