Everyone’s favorite comic legend Stan Lee may be pushing 95, but he is not planning to go gentle into that good night! Lee appeared at Wizard World Nashville and gave fans a peek into his recent cameo excursions.
During a panel with his personal manager, Max Anderson, fans were told about the upcoming cameos that have already been filmed. According to Anderson, Lee has five cameos lined up for future MCU films. Anderson explained:
“What we can say about Avengers: Infinity War is that he filmed both parts, one and two. We did Ant-Man, we did Black Panther. We did Thor too.”
True fans will remember that cameos are kind of Lee’s thing. The writer has made a point to appear in each of the MCU projects so far, and we don’t see an end in sight! With these five appearances already wrapped, Lee’s cameos will continue in 2019.
With so many cameos to his name, fans have of course identified their favorites. However, fans may be finding themselves with new favorites after this year. Chris Hemsworth recently spoke about Lee’s cameos and said the icon’s bit in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is his best. Hemsworth said:
“We’re here shooting [Ragnarok], which you did a cameo today, which is your best one yet, I think.”
‘Ragnarok’ director Taika Waititi also praised Lee’s comedic cameo:
“[I] met you the other day. You came in and… your cameo is one of the funniest things in the film.”
Of late, Lee has been making his rounds on the convention circuit in addition to filming his many cameos. While he has undoubtedly earned a break, fans have little doubt Lee will answer the call should Marvel Studios flash the signal again. With ‘Captain Marvel’ and ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ sequels in the future, Lee may have to suit up for more appearances before long!
‘Thor: Ragnarok’ hits theaters on November 3!
