HOLLYWOOD- Late comic legend Stan Lee’s daughter Joan Celia Lee has accused Marvel and its parent company Disney of disrespecting his legacy by indulging in a profit sharing battle with Sony.

Marvel and Sony are engaged in a profit sharing battle over the rights of Spider-Man, leading to a breakdown which means that Spider-Man will no longer feature in the MCU.

Speaking to TMZ, Celia said: "Marvel and Disney seeking total control of my father's creations must be checked and balanced by others who, while still seeking to profit, have genuine respect for Stan Lee and his legacy. Whether it's Sony or someone else, the continued evolution of Stan's characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view."

Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95 in December 2018.
