Stan Lee’s daughter: ‘No one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives’

While many fans have rallied behind Disney in the wake of reports that talks had broken down between the company and Sony over future Spider-Man films, at least one person is standing behind Sony — Stan Lee’s daughter.

In a statement to TMZ, Joan Lee said Marvel and Disney need to be “checked and balanced” as they seek total control of her father’s creations.

“Whether it’s Sony or someone else’s, the continued evolution of Stan’s characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view,” she said. While legendary comic book writer Lee created the Spider-Man character for Marvel comics in the 1960s, Sony has owned the film rights to the character for about two decades.

WATCH: German town offering $1.1 million to anyone who can prove it’s not a real place

There’s more than 300,000 people who live in the town, but if you can prove it’s all a hoax, you’ll be $1.1 million richer.

Despite the fact that more than 300,000 German citizens live in this city — which includes a university and an iconic castle — a tongue-in-cheek conspiracy theory posits that Bielefeld is not an actual place. In fact, the theory has been going around for decades, alleging that the town is fake and was created by the CIA. Because some people won’t let this thing go, German officials have decided to play the same game and offer up $1.1 million to whoever can prove that Bielefeld really, truly does not exist.
