Indeed, Stan Lee touched so many people’s lives in so many ways that social media will no doubt continue to be full of posts dedicated to the icon for weeks to come. And it isn’t just those who directly worked with Stan or were involved in Marvel projects who have something to say, as several cast members from AMC’s The Walking Dead have also shared tributes to Stan the Man.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Norman Reedus took to Instagram, while Khary Payton hopped on Twitter, and all three shared messages about Mr. Lee, honoring his legacy and the incredible person that he was.

Of course, these three are far from the only Hollywood stars to have paid tribute over the past few days. As we mentioned above, it seems like everyone has something to say about Stan Lee.

Chris Evans, for instance, praised the late publisher for how he “provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy.” His MCU co-star Mark Ruffalo, meanwhile, tweeted that Lee’s work “let us be extra human… superhuman even,” and Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., offered a short and personal message, simply writing: “I owe it all to you,,, Rest In Peace Stan…”

These are just a few examples of the flood of messages reflecting on Stan Lee’s legacy, and though the man himself is no longer with us, it’s clear that he left a huge impression on countless people that he met.
