Spider-Man. The Incredible Hulk. Iron Man. These and many more Marvel heroes dominate the box office year after year, capturing our imaginations and inspiring us to be better, think smarter, and channel our inner hero. Something else they have in common? They were co-created by Stan Lee, the pop culture icon known to millions as the man whose superheroes propelled Marvel to its preeminent position in the comic book industry. Next month, this legendary comic creator will be honored at a highly-anticipated, star-studded event in Los Angeles.
Extraordinary: Stan Lee will pay homage to the, well, extraordinary Stan Lee. Hosted by Chris Hardwick – one of our favorites – and produced by In-Theater Live and Agents of Mayhem in partnership with Stan Lee Collectibles, this must-see event will bring together heavyweights of the comic book world along with a number of leading TV/film talent for a night to remember.
As part of this live tribute event, Stan Lee will be joined by a variety of stars, including Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk), Tom Bergeron (Dancing with the Stars), Todd McFarlane (Spider-Man), and Andy Signore (ScreenJunkies and Honest Trailers), plus additional guests to be announced.
Extraordinary: Stan Lee will take place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills on August 22. Tickets are available now, with prices ranging from $95.00 for general seats to $350.00 for VIP seats and a meet-and-greet. Fans outside of the Los Angeles area will still be able to share in the extraordinary experience, as the ceremony will be live-streamed in movie theaters nationwide.
Fans also have the chance to make this special night even more extraordinary. Visit Omaze for the chance to be flown out to Los Angeles, receive a complimentary hotel stay, and enjoy two front-row seats at the tribute. The winner will also receive a VIP meet-and-greet with Stan, not to mention tickets to attend the exclusive VIP after party. Proceeds raised from the campaign will support Make-A-Wish to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
This tribute event is sure to be an incredible evening, honoring a truly special talent. We’re sending our love and appreciation in advance to the hero of many comic book fans, Stan Lee.
