“There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!” Chris Evans, who played Captain America in the Avengers film series, tweeted.

“Thank you Stan Lee for making people who feel different realize they are special,” Seth Rogen said.
