UPDATE (04/14/19): After the tragic passing of comic-book genius Stan Lee, it was revealed his final cameos for both Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame had already been filmed.

Now with Endgame quickly approaching at the end of the month, it has been confirmed this film will mark Lee’s final cameo appearance. Lee has appeared in cameo form in over 30 Marvel films starting with 1989’s TV movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk to the recent Captain Marvel. Since his death he was also in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

Though some reports stated Lee would make an appearance in this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, Endgame director Joe Russo said the Infinity War sequel will in fact be Lee’s last. Speaking with ET, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige claimed Lee’s final cameo will be quite sentimental.

Avengers: Endgame arrives April 26.

In related news, Marvel actor Chris Hemsworth is joining the Jay and Silent Bob reboot.

Original Story (11/13/18): As the comic book world continues to mourn the passing of legend Stan Lee, fans maybe able to find some solace knowing he was able to film his cameos for both the upcoming Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel films.

Reported by Infinity War and Avengers 4 co-director Joe Russo and Lee’s agent, Stan was able to film his short scenes before passing. So far it is unknown if Lee was able to shoot a cameo for Spider-Man: Far From Home, which would mark the film as the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film without him. Over to the side of Fox, both Dark Phoenix and New Mutants are gearing up for its release, however it hasn’t been reported yet if Lee will be making a cameo or not.

During an interview with BBC Radio Scotland, Russo shared, “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.”

For over two decades, Lee has showed up in over 30 Marvel films starting with 1989’s TV movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk to the recent Ant Man and the Wasp. Having cemented his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Spider-Man creator and former Marvel president and chairman will certainly be remembered for decades to come by fans all over the world.

Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95. To remember him, watch all of Stan Lee’s Marvel cameos in this supercut.
