Stan Lee Rushed to Hospital But is Doing Well

TMZ reported this evening that Stan Lee was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital on Wednesday night after suffering shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat. His rep said that he is now doing fine.

“Stan is doing well and feeling good. He is staying there for a few days for some check-ups as a safety precaution,” said the spokesperson.

The 95-year-old legend still keeps a busy schedule and was in attendance at the Black Panther world premiere on Monday night. You can view photos from the event by clicking here.

No other update was available, but the creator of many Marvel characters last year also cancelled some convention appearances due to health issues.

UPDATE: Stan Lee told KABC that he’s already back at home!

“All I really want to do is tell you that I’m feeling great. I’m glad I spent that evening in the hospital. It did me a lot of good. It probably did my fans a lot of good. It kept me off their backs for the evening. But I’m feeling good now and I can’t wait to get in there and tangle with all the competition. It’s nice to know that somewhere in the world there are still people who care about what I say or do. And it’s nice to know that somewhere in the world there are always people who are fans who care about what people do – the people they’re interested in. And I think having fans is one of the greatest things. I can never say how grateful I am for it.”
