Stan Lee died earlier this week, and the amount of tributes coming out for the late Marvel legend are no surprise. What might be a little bit of a surprise to his fans, however, is that he was able to record one final video message for everyone who has supported him over the years – and you might want to get your tissues ready.
In the heartwarming video, Lee says:
“I love my fans. I cannot tell you how much I love my fans. Sometimes at night, I am sitting here thinking What’s it all about? And then I get a letter from a fan or I read something or I see something or I remember something. And I realize, it’s so lucky to have fans, fans who really care about you. That’s the reason I care so much about the fans because they make me feel so great.”
“And there’s something, if you think about it, wonderful about someone caring about you – as I care about them – whom you’ve never met. They may live in another part of the world. But they care and you have something in common. And occasionally you contact each other. But this business of fans I think is terrific, and I love them all.”
The video can be seen below:
So many wonderful moments with Stan came spontaneously. As we were setting up the camera one day, he casually started talking about his fans. We know how much Stan meant to you, and we thought it would be nice for you to hear how much your support meant to him. pic.twitter.com/WTX8U1afLm
