Stan Lee is battling a case of pneumonia, as revealed in a video the 95-year-old recorded with filmmaker Keya Morgan and released via TMZ. As part of this, the editor/writer has cancelled his planned appearance at this weekend's Wizard World Cleveland.
Take a look:
"Had a little bout of pneumonia but it seems to be getting better, but I want you all to know I've been thinking of you - of course I always think of the fans. I hope you're all doing well," Lee says. "I miss you all - I miss your enthusiasm."
"I want you to know I still love you all, and I think that Marvel and Spidey and I had the best group of fans that any group ever had, and I sure appreciate it," Lee continues. "I hope next time we talk I'll be even better shape; maybe I'll have some of this pnemonia knocked down and we can have some fun. Until then... Excelsior."
Lee was admitted to the hospital earlier this month after experiencing shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat. The author was released the following day, and told Los Angeles' KABC at the time that he was "feeling great."
