So it was no surprise that the news of Lee’s death spread quickly on social media on Monday, and some of the world’s biggest stars – many of whom had their biggest roles playing heroes he created – paid tribute to the comic-book titan. Among them are MCU and Marvel stars like Hugh Jackman, Letitia Wright, and Robert Downey Jr. Here are some of the most moving star reactions to Stan Lee’s death.
