You can’t have a Marvel film without a Stan Lee cameo.
Aside from a few exceptions, the legendary comic book creator has had a cameo in nearly every Marvel production, dating back to 2000’s X-Men. It looks like that tradition will continue in the near future.
Speaking with BBC Radio, Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo talked about shooting Lee’s cameos and confirmed that he will have a cameo in the film and three other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
So, Stan, typically we try to get him out — he doesn’t love to fly — so we try to get him out for his cameos around the same time. So if we have other movies shooting on the same lot that we’re on, for instance Ant-Man 2 or Avengers 4, we group his cameos together and then move him from one set to the next and kind of get him through his cameos in one day.
This news may put some fans’ minds at ease knowing that Lee is still working following reports of elder abuse and manipulation on the part of Lee’s handlers, on top of his declining health. His name has been in the news a lot lately, so it’s great to hear some positive Stan Lee news in the middle of all of this.
It’s unknown at this point if he’ll have appearance in Deadpool 2 (Lee appeared in the first film), but knowing that the popular creator will still appear in more Marvel productions is great news indeed.
