NYCC 2017: Stan Lee Screening Replaces Marvel’s ‘The Punisher’ Panel

In the wake of the act of domestic terrorism committed in Las Vegas earlier this week, Marvel and ReedPOP pulled the panel for Marvel’s upcoming Netflix show The Punisher. In its place, comes a screening of footage from a conversation between Joe Queseda and Stan Lee from the Paley Center in April of this year.

The new event, which will take place at The Theatre at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, October 7 at 5:15pm, will benefit the Hero Initiative, a charity benefitting in-need comic-book creators.

Marvel, The Hero Initiative and ReedPOP are billing the event as a chance to “experience Stan as he answers questions that he has rarely been asked and reveals never-before-heard stories and thoughts on some of the greatest moments in his personal life, professional career, and the history of Marvel.”

New York Comic-Con 2017 continues until Sunday. Make sure to check out all of the content here at The Outerhaven throughout the event, as we are in attendance.

Editor’s Note: While I understand the reasoning for canceling The Punisher event, I do not agree with this decision at all. I believe quite a few fans are more than upset. The only connection between The Punisher and the Las Vegas shooting is that there are guns. That’s it. Nothing more than that. However, this is my opinion, and discussion is much more than welcome here. Tell us how you feel in the comment section below.
