Avengers: Endgame is currently one of the most hyped movies that are releasing globally. Rumor had recently come out that Stan Lee’s final cameo in the MCU will be in Spider-Man: Far from Home. The buzz is now clear after Russo brothers announced Stan Lee’s last appearance in Avengers: Endgame.
Stan Lee died on November 12, 2018. Many also remember him for his cameos in movies such as “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, “Iron Man” and “Thor”. He was last seen in Tom Hardy-starrer ‘Venom’. Sadly, he won’t be attending the premiere of the conclusion of 21 movies.
The mastermind of Marvel’s superhero universe, Stan Lee revolutionized comic books and created superhero characters. He was the co-creator of 500 iconic characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, X-Men and the Fantastic Four. His characters helped make Marvel Comics the brand it is today.
“We are fascinated by the life of Stan Lee and we are actually developing a little something that has to do with his work in the history of Marvel. But we are not ready to present it or talk about it yet. It’s more of a documentary.” Anthony Russo told IANS.
Lee began his career at what was then Timely Comics in 1939. Over the years, he was a writer, editor, and occasional illustrator. He joined the Marvel Comics in 1961. He often made appearances at comic book conventions and lectured at colleges. Lee continued to play an important role as Marvel transitioned into television during the 1980s. He served as narrator on animated series like “Incredible Hulk”.
Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect. The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart. He has left behind a legacy that will be cherished by future generations.
“It was always a lot of fun shooting these cameos because he was very charming, and he would maybe get the crew going, and everybody would be laughing and having a good time,” said Anthony Russo while remembering him.
Stan Lee’s life and legacy are not without their controversies. Fans are excited to get into this fuss. Even Leonardo DiCaprio was reportedly interested in playing the comic-book legend role in his biopic. This all happened after Twentieth Century Fox bought Lee’s story rights.
Loved by everyone, Lee never failed to feature in the superhero movies. His absence will be perceived by fans who loved his every small glimpse in movies.
A feature-length documentary, WITH GREAT POWER: THE STAN LEE STORY was released in 2010 to showcase the life of Stan Lee. It explored the vivid life and his imagination from his depression era upbringing through the Marvel Age of comics and beyond.
It was neither confirmed nor denied that Lee would make an appearance in the film. Director Joe Russo put an end to the plaguing question during a press day in Los Angeles after some more question. It is figured out that future Marvel movies might show Lee’s cameo with modern technology.
