Hulk’s Mark Ruffalo Posts Emotional Birthday Tribute To The Late Stan Lee

This is what Hulk’s Mark Ruffalo did for Stan Lee on his birthday: a heartfelt video tribute. In 2018, at the age of 95, the comics legend sadly passed away. Fans from all over the world were saddened by Lee’s passing.

In the early 1960s, Stan Lee contemplated quitting comics due to his lack of success, but his wife persuaded him to team up with Jack Kirby to create the Fantastic Four in 1961. Spider-Man: No Way Home has become one of the most successful film series of all time and has already surpassed $1 billion at the box office, making it the first film in the MCU to do so.

Since 2012, Hulk’s Mark Ruffalo has been a part of the MCU as The Incredible Hulk. The monumental fact of it is that he took over the role from Edward Norton in 2012’s The Avengers. As Bruce Banner and his green counterpart, he has appeared in eight Marvel films to date and received critical acclaim for both roles.

Ruffalo Remembers Stan Lee’s 99th Birthday

The last time Ruffalo appeared in the MCU was in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ first post-credits scene, where fans were perplexed when Banner appeared in his human form after being last seen as Smart Hulk in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. However, set photos from the upcoming Disney+ series, She-Hulk, have revealed that Hulk’s Mark Ruffalo will reprise his role as Smart Hulk in the new series.

In honor of Lee’s 99th birthday, Hulk’s Mark Ruffalo tweeted a touching tribute. Ruffalo acknowledges Lee’s enormous contribution to Marvel comics in the tweet. Also included in Lee’s tweet is a picture of him smiling in front of one of his most famous works.

Since Lee’s death in 2018, the MCU has come together to commemorate his birthday every year. This demonstrates how much the late hero is still cherished. His brief but memorable cameos were eagerly anticipated by fans of the MCU. One theory is that Stan Lee was actually a time-traveling Steve Rogers who appeared in the film’s cameos. “True Believer” was one of Lee’s catchphrases when he would refer to his fans, and he was recently honored with the creation of a new Marvel God.

Stan Lee’s legacy will live on as long as the MCU exists. In Phase Four, both the films and the Disney+ series have received even more accolades and recognition. Another great year for Marvel, especially considering the Covid-19 pandemic that kept people at home and away from theaters. Both Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye wrapped up 2021 on an excellent note. Stan Lee has a lot to be proud of as far as his work in comics is concerned.
