Stan Lee's Daughter Speaks Up About 'Spider-Man' Drama & Has No Problem Throwing Disney/Marvel Under The Bus

Day 3 of the “Spider-Man: Homeless” (my proposed sequel title) saga is upon us. You may have gone to bed praying to the superhero gods, hoping that by the time you woke up this morning, the crisis of whether or not Peter Parker will continue to be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be over. Unfortunately, it isn’t. Sony and Disney appear truly done negotiating and are willing to move on without each other.

Outside of Jeremy Renner, there aren’t many Hollywood figures who have decided to pick a side in the debate. Renner is clearly Team Disney (as the studio continues to pay him handsomely for his MCU work). But now, thanks to Stan Lee’s daughter Joan Celia (JC), Sony now has its own defender.

Speaking to TMZ, the daughter of Spider-Man’s co-creator has spoken out about the feud between the massive Hollywood studios, and she’s decidedly in the camp of those supporting Sony. Why? Well, it’s not for any business or creative reasons. Instead, it appears to be a by-product of JC Lee’s deep hatred for the bosses over at Marvel and Disney.

“Whether it’s Sony or someone else’s, the continued evolution of Stan’s characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view,” she said. “When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency.”

Lee added, “In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives.”

Damn. That’s one hell of a statement.

Obviously, it’s unfair to characterize this statement as anything other than bad blood between JC Lee and Disney/Marvel. We’re going to go out on a limb and say that Lee would have supported damn near any opponent of the Mouse House, as long as she gets to voice her opinion.

So, not that it matters in the larger scheme of things, but the only living heir to Marvel god Stan Lee seems to think that Sony is the studio that deserves to have the rights to her father’s creation.
