Mark Hamill Joins Forces With Kevin Smith to Host Stan Lee Memorial

The star-studded 'Excelsior! A Stan Lee Celebration', which is set for January 30 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in California, will see Vincent D'Onofrio and RZA among the speakers.

AceShowbiz - Mark Hamill and Kevin Smith will pay tribute to comic book legend Stan Lee as part of a star-studded memorial later this month (January 2019).

"Excelsior! A Stan Lee Celebration" will take place on January 30 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in California and will feature public and private events. The memorial will be presented by Smith and Hamill, while actor Vincent D'Onofrio, rapper RZA, and others will be on hand to speak.

An art exhibit by artist Rob Prior, costumes and props, a musical performance and a moment of remembrance will also take place at the public memorial. During the private portion, Smith will moderate conversations with the various attendees.

"Thank you, Stan, for making me not only the boy I was but also the man I am today," Smith says. "You had great power and you always used it responsibly, fostering billions of dreamers who all know your name - a name written in the stars for all time. You were not just the literary titan of comic books, you were our modern-day Mark Twain."

Proceeds from the event's ticket sales will benefit non-profit organisation The Hero Initiative, which supports comic book creators, artists and writers in need.

Lee passed away in November (2018) at the age of 95.
