Stan Lee’s Upcoming Marvel Movie Cameos

Published 5 years ago by , Updated August 22nd, 2013 at 6:21 pm,

Stan Lee, The Man, The Legend.

If you know anything about comic books then you know the name Stan Lee. He’s the comic geek god who introduced the world to the super famous superheroes Spider-Man, Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Daredevil and Iron Man among others.

Stan is currently 86 years young and in recent years, he’s been included in many of the major Marvel-based films with small cameo roles and now it appears that there’s plenty more coming our way.

Some of these appearances include playing Hugh Hefner in Iron Man, playing a dude who gets poisoned from drinking a bottle made in the factory where Edward Norton’s Bruce Banner works in The Incredible Hulk and a guest at Mr. Fantastic’s and the Invisible Woman’s wedding whom the bouncer wouldn’t allow in during the intro scene to the Fantastic Four sequel.

In addition to those notable roles, he’s appeared in all three Spider-Man films, Daredevil, X-Men 1 & 3, Ang Lee’s Hulk, the first Fantastic Four and several voice roles in Marvel cartoons among other appearances.

If you thought was a lot of cameos, expect plenty more.

The genius creator has been popping up in recent news reports online surrounding cameos in several of the in-development Marvel movies.

According to Superhero Hype!, Zombieland creators Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, who are in charge of the screenplay for the in-development Venom spinoff of the Spider-Man franchise, revealed that Stan Lee will be in their movie:

“Oh, yeah. Stan Lee is in it… I feel like that’s the one thing we can say. He does appear in our script, and we’re very specific about where he is and why. May he live forever. Let’s hope he’s in many movies to come.”

According to some inside information exclusive to Nuke The Fridge, Lee will also be playing Larry King in Iron Man 2 in a scene where King interviews Tony Stark about a new suit he makes in the film (War Machine’s?).

In addition to those, there’s a more recent report from the same source at Nuke The Fridge today that says Stan may be playing a cameo role as an Asgardian in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor.

Perhaps it’s not Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. that will tie the Marvel franchise together… it’s Stan Lee! He’s even able to cross studios from Sony to Fox to Marvel, etc.

It’s fantastic that one of the great folks behind what we love and cherish today is alive to share in its silver screen glory and better yet, to partake in it himself and become forever a part of the films. What a fun a great way to please the fans, the filmmakers and keep everything rooted in the idea that this is all for entertainment and enjoyment. Continue to Page 2 to see some examples of this…

  1. I like that he has cameos in these films, and my favorite would have to be his cameo in “Iron Man”.

  2. Dam he is cool. 86 wow. Shall be a sad day when we lose him but for now bring on the cameos. Hopefully he’ll be around long enough for the avengers.

  3. ^^^^ Hes actually signed on to play Ultron in the Avengers film. :)

  4. Me personally, I’d prefer a Bob Layton cameo in Iron Man 2…

  5. i don’t mind seeing him in every marvel movies.
    don’t mind at all.

  6. STAN BEING IN YOUR MOVIE IS LIKE THE CREATOR’S STAMP OF APPROVAL, IN THE COMIC WORLD, HE’S LIKE ODIN.

  7. they should take a thorough 3D scan of Stan ; then after Stan has shuffled off to Comic Book Heaven ( many many many years from now ) he can still make cgi appearances in ALL Marvel based films { even in the ones he had no hand in creating }.
    Stan ROCKS —-Let The Cameos Continue!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. @Rasta

    That would be way cool. And I think the first “post” cameo he should be in should be Dr. Strange … that would be surreal.

    I too liked Ironman cameo, I liked the incredible hulk cameo as well.

  9. Iron Man cameo.. hahaha.. Hugh Heffner? Stan Lee? Well, it did seem like it from behind!

    On a side note.. about the picture above, is it just me or does Captain America seem to have a double-chin? Blame it on lack of steroids then..

  10. if i Remember correctly He narrated the entire SPIDER-MAN video game that Came out in 2000.
    that was Based off the 90′s cartoon, in which the last episode of the Spider-man cartoon. he made an animated cameo appearance as himself.

    but my Favorite Stan lee apperance was in MALLRATS.

    i hope he lives a much longer life than most.

  11. the only marvel movies i care to see stan lee make a cameo is in ironman 2 thor captain america & the avengers. i want marvel to make a movie about the defenders.this was the coolest comic book superhero team of doctor strange hulk prince namor & silver surfer. i would like to see a battle between defenders & x-men and that will be totally cool.i want marvel to make a hulk vs thor epic battle movie.
