As is customary for most films based on Marvel heroes (with some notable exceptions), legendary comic book creator Stan Lee is given a brief cameo. When Dr. Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) is through giving his brilliant lecture in the confines of a psychiatric facility, it is Lee dressed as a patient who requests his shoe be returned.
Unlike many before it, this cameo might actually slip by the average moviegoer, since - for a change - the joke he delivers actually lands perfectly in the scene, drawing more attention to the laugh than his inclusion.
That shift toward subtlety might be sign of the times, since Lee's original cameo in The Avengers was meant to be a similar throwaway one-liner directed at Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).
