I feel like an artist could make a really good picture out of this thought
Like when Disney sent a drawing of Mickey consoling Kermit when him Henson died
There’s a great painting of all the Looney Tunes characters bowing their heads toward a microphone under spotlight after Mel Blanc died.
Just titled: Speechless.
I had a print of that for a long time hanging up, probably an odd choice for a kids bedroom but it was cool
So, I had never heard of him until your comment. I had no idea one person did so much, I'm kind of speechless. Thanks for sharing, it taught me something new today.
he became known for his work in animationas the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the Cat, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin the Martian, Pepé Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, the Tasmanian Devil and many of the other characters from the Looney Tunesand Merrie Melodies theatrical cartoonsduring the golden age of American animation. He voiced all of the major male Warner Bros. cartoon characters except for Elmer Fudd, whose voice was provided by fellow radio personality Arthur Q. Bryan, although Blanc later voiced Fudd as well after Bryan's death.
Edit: and this is even more touching. His son, Noel Blanc, took over some of the voices after his father died:
Following his father's death, Noel voiced Elmer Fudd, The Tasmanian Devil, Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, and other characters in Tiny Toon Adventures and Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story.
He was actually the only voice actor credited in the early cartoons. Stan Freberg finally argued that since Mel got a credit, he wanted one too. The studio relented and ended up crediting all of theor voice actors after that
There is also a video of other voice actors talking about how incredible he is; actors like Hank Azaria and others. One of the things Mr. Azaria brought up is, not only did Mel Blanc provide those voices, but he also did them in various accents according to what country they were in at the time. So not only Bugs Bunny; but French Bugs Bunny, Spanish Bugs Bunny, etc. And on a few occasions, the characters would imitate each other. So you would have Daffy talking like Bug Bunny, and Bugs Bunny imitating Elmer Fudd. Each with their own core vocal tonality, but with the other character's affect. Mind-blowing.
I wouldn't be surprised if we see something with DC and other labels too
Lot of dc actors, writers, and artists are putting their condolences on different media outlets. Regardless if your DC, Marvel, darkhorse, whatever we can respect a man that was so important in making comics mainstream like Stan lee was.
His work inspired a lot of others in dc and darkhorse as well
Also, tons (if not all) of creators have worked for DC and Marvel.
Someone already did
That's from an X-Men event a while back.
Dear god just let it be Alex Ross...
I’d love if he stipulated in his will that the MCU actors show up in costume
So how many Hulk's do we get?
All of them!!! And all the Spidermans!! We're bringing the mutliverse to one unilaterally important funeral!!
The choice is sure to Ruffal some feathers
Unfortunately, there’s Norton we can do about it.
They should just put up a Bana that says ‘all Hulks welcome’
One of them will dress as the Human Torch so Chris Evans can be Captain America.
Or a very creative combination of the two? Captain Torch, or Human America, if you will?
So a burning US flag? That might be in poor taste.
Not if it's an old flag. (That's how you're supposed to retire flags in the USA)
New plan. Chris Evans goes dressed as the Statue of Liberty.
I’m afraid to know what Human America is.
Florida Man. But with superserum.
We could use a more Human America...
and all of the X-men actors. or really just anyone whos played any character from a marvel comic. we need to draw on the entire multiverse here.
I want to see Deadpool's reaction to Stan Lee's death now.
“Nothing funny about this. Fuck.”
Deadpool would still find a way to make it bitterly funny-sad. Dramatically mourn, loudly and obnoxiously, while cradling his body and jostling him around like Weekend At Bernie's. After all, the purpose of a comic book character is to entertain, and Deadpool often straddles the lines of taste and morbidity. I don't know if Deadpool's style of humour was Stan Lee's cup of tea, but I bet he'd see the funny side of it all the same.
Pretty sure all Deadpool Comics say "Stan Lee Presents" on them
A very rare funeral - where people showing up in colorful costumes might actually be the more respectful thing to do.
You just solidified it, I am putting in my will that all funeral attendees must come in superhero outfits!
I actually know of a few people who had funerals where the congregation was asked to wear colourful clothing, to celebrate the person’s life rather than mourn.
I think it’s more common than people think in progressive countries where people are less strictly religious or traditional.
for my funeral theres not going to be a service. i intend for my coffin to be dumped in the grave while no-one is looking.
instead anyone who wants to is welcome to go down to the pub and have a drink in my name. ive asked my friends to sing a couple of my favourite drinking songs.
We do that in Ireland anyways.
exactly. sadly i live in england. they do things strangely over here. hence why ive left specific instructions on how to do it right.
even so, the last funeral i went to in ireland involved 2 church services and a long, drawn out burrial. (although she was a very devout catholic.)
What you on about, 130% of English people go down the pub every day
every funeral ive been to in this country (bar one) involved a long drawn out church service (even for the atheists) followed by an hour at the grave and half an hour at a bar.
this is completely wrong.
for me at least.
i want no service at all, nobody by the grave but the man who dug it, and at least 6 hours at an open bar.
I was definitely making a joke about England having a bit of a drinking problem. The 130% not get you?
Every single funeral I have been to has been about 30 minutes in a cerm then everyone goes to the bar until they can't stand up anymore. In the UK
"When I'm dead, just throw me in the trash."
I have it written in my living will that:
No party shall prevent me to skydive into Mauna K'ea, Big Island, Hawai'i without a parachute if I am faced with either: (1) An uncurable disease, (2) require assisted living, or (3) any other happenstance - whether I am in good health or bad.
I'm going headfirst back into the fire & flame that helped birthed me & my people. Pele, I'm comin' home, baby!
are you sure youre hawaiian? this is so metal you should be swedish.
I’m hapa. Quarter Polynesian, quarter Japanese. Half European mutt via me pa. 💪🏽🖤
i mean i was just making a cheap joke about swedish heavy metal bands, but thats cool.
im irish, thats all i know. i might also have some russian or polish heritage, or i might have some french heritage, but the recorded family history only goes back to my great-grandparents.
Just an FYI, since lava is just liquid rock, you won't be drowning in it gollum style.
You'll float like a cork on top, dying from third degree burns.
I'd recommend first putting a bullet in your brain, and then have someone chuck the corpse in there.
I believe the impact will do a doosey on my (hopefully old) body.
The lack of air and superhot fumes would contribute to that symphony of pain if I did not get knocked unconscious by hitting the lava.
If I miss the crater completely, well.. it suddenly wouldn’t be my problem anymore. 😋👍🏽
After hitting the rock at freefall speeds, any gooey mess remaining in his skull won't be conscious enough to worry about what happens next.
Put some money aside for like 5 free drinks for all family and friends and they’ll get shittered in your memory
i was just gonna rent out a pub and do an open bar.
That’s even better if you got the funds to do so. It’d be an awesome surprise thing too. When everyone is getting together to mourn someone busts in and goes EVERYBODY COME TO THE PUB ITS FREE SHIT IN ANKOKU_TEION’s NAME
Or even better when they’re getting ready to “lower the coffin into the grave” someone opens it and it’s just fuckin loaded full with booze and they’re like “yea we dumped his body when ya weren’t looking he wanted you to just get fuckin loaded instead of cryin”
If I go to a funeral and this happened, I’d probably get kicked out for laughing. I mean seriously, you know you had a good friend when that happens.
Or you fake a funeral just to sit up and scream “FREE DRINKS AT THE PUB”
Both my grandparents had asked for their funerals to be more of a celebration of their life instead of a mourning-
Suffice to say we threw more of a banquet then we did a funeral, and toasted to them and all after paying our respects. It was quite something.
My grandpa was a pastor and my grandmother was an english professor and also choir member for the church he preached at. They started a program that eventually brought my dad to the states from a refugee camp during the Vietnam War.
Without them, I wouldn’t be here, so I gotta say, I celebrated hard.
That would honestly be pretty beautiful. Seeing all cast from avengers, X-Men, and all other marvel superheros come decked out in their latest superhero costumes
Ryan Reynolds has to come as Deadpool dressed as the Green Lantern.
So many gray motion track suits though :/
Ever been to a child funeral? They do that all the time now.
A friend of mine passed away in January. At his funeral everyone wore either orange or Star Fleet uniforms. It was actually really moving.
People did that for my uncle’s funeral, he was very into superheroes
I've told my wife...at my funeral, my casket is to be brought in 15 minutes after the service actually starts. I WILL be late to my own funeral.
My mom actually was. She was cremated so we could only have a small viewing with close family since she wasn't being embalmed. The funeral home told us the hospital would have her there at a specific time. When we showed up we found out that they had gotten stuck in traffic. My mom was late to everything so it at least gave us a good laugh on a really sad day.
This should be one of those more upbeat funerals that celebrates the amazing contributions one person has brought to this world.
I would actually not be surprised by this at all.
It would be really special and fitting tbh
This is so sad. I really hope that they made or are going to make a movie all about Stan lee.
It'd be like Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film.
I think the way to go is do a Mad Men-like movie about the Marvel offices in the 1960s, going from the creation of the Fantastic Four to Jack Kirby leaving Marvel in 1970.
No I have a better idea. Stan lee saves all of the avengers from dying in avengers 4.
He shows up as an unknown super hero, and the Avengers are each saying their own "Hey, isn't that the ________ guy?"
I'm all his creations, I wonder if he ever wrote down what kind of hero he would be.
I think him being himself was being a hero all along.
Stan Lee is his superhero name. His real name was Stanley Lieber.
It's going to be like that scene from Big Fish.
That movie reminds me of my father so much.
I guess similar to this: Speechless
It was released after the death of Mel Blanc, the voice of many Looney Tunes characters, like Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig and Daffy Duck.
I mean, if I was one of the heroes, I’d be calling the costume designer and saying that I’m going to this funeral and you’re gonna let me borrow that suit. Either that, or you’re gonna be the first call when I get arrested for stealing it so I can go to this funeral.
should robert downy jr. come with or without the suit? i feel tony stark is a big enough character on his own without the ironman suit.
Without it, but the suit should also come in separately. Steal a robot from Boston Dynamics to wear it.
Just the glowing heart.
A lot of the recent suits have a bunch of CGI, I think of the two options, having him as normal Stark would be better.
Now if they should be in costume, I don't know.
With a very flashy expensive suit.
He could go with the jacket and glasses he was wearing in IW right before the New York battle or something.
The amount of hospital visits most of these actors do they all have at least a costume at home they can wear already
Yeah cuz the costume designers just have them in their closet chillin
Pretty sure I read somewhere that Chris Pratt took his Star Lord costume home.
Ryan Reynolds walked off the last day of shooting Deadpool in the suit
Cant say I blame them. If I was ever cast as something like Captain America you can be damn sure that suit and shield are coming home with me one way or another. That goes for any superhero with a suit/weapon.
Ryan Reynolds stole the Deadpool costume in the last day of doing, so there's that.
It would be the ultimate twist if he somehow faked his own death and made a cameo at the funeral.
He may have already filmed his funeral cameo
"if you are watching this, I am dead." And the obligatory "I've always wanted to say that"
"Hidden in the pages of Marvel comic books, I've placed 3 clues..."
And thus it begins. The great easter egg hunt.
Ooh your comment just gave me chills. Can you imagine how amazing that would be? A handful of very cryptic clues, hidden somewhere in the pages of books spread out over years, decades even?
Imagine if one didn't exist, the hunter had to make their own, to follow in his foot steps
Has anybody found that last Easter egg in Guardians of the Galaxy?
This comment made me laugh. Takes away the sadness a little bit, thank you 😀
I really hope they all show up in costume
That actually sounds really plausible.. kinda appropriate too. That would be like the ultimate homage towards Stan Lee and all that he’s accomplished.
This is honestly the cutest thing ever and the best way to honor him.
Fun thing is, I'm sure he'd have been super down with the idea as well.
I bet he’d love the shit out of this idea
every actor who has donned a costume for him should show up in costume for him one last time.....it would be epic.
Including those from the older movies. Lou Ferrigno as Hulk, Matt Salinger as Captain America, David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury, Shinji Todo as tokusatsu Spider-Man, and so on.
Xmen and Avengers crossover
This is not how we wanted it .... this is not how we wanted it at all!
Here's an idea, have the DC heroes arrive as well, he was a major influence for them.
And besides, if any man deserves Captain America and Superman to attend his funeral, its Stan.
What a life he lived. RIP
His ghost will cameo
I imagine it being a lot like Jim Henson’s funeral.
Wow thanks now I'm sobbing
Reminds me of "Big Fish" - all of Stans stories coming together.
the mcu actors should show up as their characters, hell all actors that had him cameo in his movies should show up as their comic book counterpart
When they bring his coffin out I think they should all be lined up outside, like an honor guard.
Honestly, yeah I could see that happening. I'm assuming a lot of, if not most mcu actors will be attending his funeral, I could see them going in costume as being respectful in a sense. Maybe without the masks, but other than that
If they don't make a move about his life with every actor in his comic adaptations playing side/background characters I'll be horribly disappointed
That’d be really cool if all the stars of his movies attended in full costume.
