In little over a year, we’ll be seeing the third and final chapter of Star Wars’ latest trilogy, Episode IX, hit theatres. Unsurprisingly, we barely know a thing about it yet, other than it exists and some people we know and love are in it.

But that just gives us more reason to make a list of hopes about what we’ll see when the JJ. Abrams-directed film drops.

The loss of Stan Lee is a blow to us all. You simply can’t overstate the impact his life and work had not just on popular culture, but the world as we know it. And so, it seemed fitting to round up notable tributes to Stan the Man from around the world.

Some are from his colleagues at Marvel and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Others are more tangential, but no less heartfelt. What they all agree on is that the loss of Stan Lee is not something any of us will get over soon.
