This past Tuesday night in Los Angeles, celebrity guests and industry giants gathered at the Saban Theatre to celebrate the one and only, Stan Lee. Extraordinary: Stan Lee was an emotional tribute that took a nostalgic look back at Lee’s storied life and career.

Broadcasted live into more than 180 theaters nationwide, comedian Chris Hardwick hosted as Michael Rooker (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”), Lou Ferrigno (“The Incredible Hulk”), Todd McFarlane (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN), RZA (Wu Tang Clan, “Blade Trinity”), Aisha Tyler, director James Gunn (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”), Karen Gillan(“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”), Pom Klementieff(“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”), Peter Shinkoda (“Marvel’s Daredevil”), Kelly Hu (X2: X-Men United), producer/director Kenneth Johnson (“The Incredible Hulk”), and more, all paid tribute to Stan the Man.

Iconic sport and style brand, FILA developed two special-edition footwear designs which they presented to Lee on stage, as well as a custom signature Stan Lee jacket.

Winners from the Omaze fundraising platform contest were on hand, as well as children from one of Lee’s favorite charities, Make-A-Wish®, that grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
