Stan Lee Never Got To See The Final Cut Of Avengers: Endgame

Stan Lee Never Got To See The Final Cut Of Avengers: Endgame

Well here's a thought to pull on the heartstrings. The legend that is Stan Lee never actually got to see the final cut of Avengers: Endgame before he died.

The late, great icon died at the age of 95 last year, and helped to create some of the most famous comic book characters ever put into print.

Not only did he have a cameo in every single film made by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he also made appearances in other Marvel movies. He showed up in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, as you can see from the still below.

He also popped up in the X-Men franchise. Everyone wanted a bit of him.

Thankfully, as if to round of his full and incredible career, he made it into Avengers: Endgame - but heart-wrenchingly, he never got to actually see it. Although he didn't actually play a part in the making of the movie, there's no doubting his presence was still felt all the way through.

After his death in late 2018, it was assumed that his Captain Marvel cameo might be the last. But that's not the case. In an interview with ET Online, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, confirms that more appearances were filmed before Lee's death.

Avengers: Endgame To Be Re-Released With New Footage

Feige confirmed that one of the remaining cameos is for the next MCU movie, Avengers: Endgame, which came out on April.

When asked about the potential for an appearance in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he said: "We'll see. We shot a couple of others, so we're coming up on the last of them, yes."

Lee's role in Captain Marvel saw him play himself. In a scene set on a train, he is seen rehearsing lines from the script to Kevin Smith's 1994 movie Mallrats - in which he also plays himself.

For a brief moment, Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson), thinks he might be a Skrull (ET shapeshifters) in disguise - but instead gives him a quick smile before moving on to the next potential threat.

The film also opened with a moving tribute in which a modified version of the Marvel intro appears. Creators replaced all the usual MCU characters with Lee's cameos from over the years. The piece ends with a simple 'Thank you, Stan'.

Feige explained: "It was soon after he passed, and we were thinking about what to do and how to do it and whether to release something or put something out online. And we figured, as we always have, the way to pay honor to him is the way we've been trying to do while he was alive, which is the movies.

"I had always thought in the back of my head, should that day ever come - which as I've previously said, I wasn't sure it would. Like, I envisioned him at 127 - that I would want something sort of touching and rousing up front, as opposed to sort of depressing at the end."
