Sorry Filipino comic book fans, but Stan Lee will not be appearing as a special guest at the inaugural ComicCon Asia 2018 in Manila.
On Thursday morning, organizers and the team of the 95-year-old Marvel Comics legend have "mutually decided" to cancel his previously scheduled appearance due to "health concerns."
Last month, Lee revealed his battle with pneumonia, which has forced him to skip other conventions in the US.
"I want you all to know I'm thinking of you ...and I hope you're all doing well, and I miss you all," he told his fans through TMZ. "I miss your enthusiasm, I miss all your notes, all your photos and emails … and I want you to know that I still love you all."
Refunds will be handed out to those who purchased tickets for the Stan Lee specific activities.
Lee, who created the X-Men, Spider-Man and many more iconic superheroes, was billed as the headlining guest for the first-ever ComicCon Asia 2018. He was scheduled to appear on both days for Q&A, autograph, and photo sessions.
NBA star Ray Allen and Walter Jones, the original Black Ranger from the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers," are the other main guests.
