Hugh Jackman Remembers Stan Lee, The Man Behind His Best-Known Role

The internet continues to mourn the loss of Stan Lee, perhaps the best-known figure in comic book history, who died on Monday at the age of 95.

Having created the lion share of superheroes in Marvel’s considerable stable, Lee can be considered directly responsible for the most profitable film franchises of all time. 2000’s ‘X-Men,’ the film that really kicked off the superhero craze in Hollywood, was also the breakthrough role for actor Hugh Jackman.

Appearing on The Late Show, Jackman remembered the Marvel legend fondly, calling him a “creative genius,” and related a story of attending his first Comic-Con as the star of the film, walking the red carpet, and no one taking his picture “because at the other end was Stan Lee”

Watch him discuss Lee’s influence and learning how to play the role of Wolverine in the full interview below.
