Stan Lee filmed a cameo for Avengers 4, according to Director Joe Russo. "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," Russo stated. "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 ...

According to James Gunn, the writer/director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, has provided an explanation for this in a Facebook Live session with fans: “I actually read the Marvel fan sites and the Marvel message boards out there and a lot of times people have ideas that are somewhat off-base or silly or whatever,” said Gunn. “But one thing I found ...

tl;dr: Probably not. Is Stan Lee playing The Watcher in all his Marvel cameos? Almost certainly not. And if he is, they will never reveal this. Brief historical tangent (for the, like, three people who don't know this already): from the 1970s to the early 2000s Marvel, unwilling to self-finance movies based on their properties, parcelled out the film ...

Yes, he has. Stan Lee hasn't just made cameo appearances in comic books - he is actually a character within the Marvel Comics continuity, according to this page on the Marvel wiki. From the character's History section: Stan Lee and his then comic collaborator Jack Kirby originally had an agreement with the Fantastic Four that the team would share their ...

Yes. It wasn't hard to figure out to begin with; this is what a Watcher looks like: In addition, Lee was credited in the movie as "Watcher informant", and the only thing we see him doing in the film is relaying information to 3 aliens, who by deduction must be Watchers. Finally, James Gunn (the director) has admitted that the inclusion of The Watchers are ...

The blood scene was setup so that the US Government could track Dr.Banner. He had been off grid for sometime and the government had no idea idea where he was. Thus to progress the plot that particular scene was needed. The scene was not for a cameo but it gave one of the scenes where a Stan Lee cameo could be used. Talking about the Stan Lee cameo. The old ...

According to Yahoo Movies, the list of Marvel films that don't contain a Stan Lee cameo is "Blade" (New Line Cinema 1998) "Blade II" (New Line Cinema 2002) "X2" (20th Century Fox 2003) "The Punisher" (Lions Gate Films 2004) "Blade: Trinity" (New Line Cinema 2004) "Elektra" (20th Century Fox 2005) "Ghost Rider" (Columbia Pictures 2007) "Punisher: War Zone" (...

Stan Lee may have cameos in six upcoming movies, of which four are Marvel movies: Captain Marvel, Avengers 4, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and Spider-Man: Far from Home. Update: According to Entertainment Weekly, Lee will not appear in Dark Phoenix.

It doesn't show the effects of consuming the contaminated drink in the movie but, in the script, the victim is a woman. KID (CONT’D) Mom? WHIP PAN: Mom is on the floor, her body in a spasm, eyes rolled back KID (CONT’D) MOM!!! INT. GENERAL ROSS’S OFFICE - DAY GEN. T. ROSS at his desk. Lost in thought. Snaps out of it when his female ...

Unlike his appearances in the Marvel Studios-produced films, Stan Lee's appearances in the Fox films are less consistent. For instance, he did not make a cameo in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. For Days of Future Past, he explained: STAN LEE: As a matter of fact I have never requested a cameo. I love doing them. I’m incredibly happy when somebody ...

There are only two "Lee"s visible on the wall; Ian Lee (glimpsed) and Charlotte Lee (below Scott Lang).

While I can't find an official statement, since he's done narration for TV (both live action and animated) and done other appearances besides just quick cameos, he would be a member of the Screen Actors Guild. As such, I'm not sure of the rules for non-spoken parts, but if it's a spoken part, he would get paid. I wouldn't be surprised if he basically got ...

That scene was not just a cameo but part of the story, that old man with gamma sickness helped in tracking hulk. From Wikipedia synopsis: After Banner cuts his finger, a drop of his blood falls into a bottle, and is eventually ingested by an elderly consumer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, giving him gamma sickness. Using the bottle to track down Banner, Ross ...

Because Stan Lee is old and filming is a rough business. “It’s a big deal for a 93-year-old man to go to a movie set and spend a day shooting,” Derrickson explained after a special screening of Doctor Strange at EW PopFest. As a result, Lee packed his cameos into one afternoon. “James shot four cameos with Stan in one day,” Derrickson said, ...

Stan Lee was an elderly man and although Marvel wanted to have him cameo in their upcoming films, having him travel across the world to different locations just to film a single short scene was likely to put a strain on both Lee and the film's budget. Better to film a bunch of them all at the same time (against a blue screen) and use CGI to add in the main ...

Did Stan Lee Have any input in the creation of the original comic book Deadpool? No. Well not exactly, but there are some tenuous connections. Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza are credited as being the creators of Deadpool, but they fully admit to using a few inspirations for the character. While many may recognise the similarities between Deadpool and the ...

No, he's playing several different characters. The only two he's played that have definitely been identified by name are in both Fantastic Four movies. In the first he's identified by name as the FF's mailman, Willy Lumpkin. He's played himself in the second ("But, I'm Stan Lee!") at the wedding of Reed Richards and Sue Storm. Therefore, it can be assumed ...

In this article, Stan Lee says that his favourite comic book movie, not even just his favourite Spider-Man movie, is the original Spider-Man, in which Spidey is played by Tobey Maguire. "I think my favorite comic book movie was the first one that was such a hit, the first Spider-Man," Lee said in reply to a fan on Facebook, going on to add that "...

Many of the films mentioned, like the 1990 Captain America, 1989 Punisher, and Man-Thing, are direct-to-video, not actual theatrical films. Of the 41 theatrical feature films based on Marvel Comics, he has appeared in most. 1986's Howard the Duck was done before Marvel Entertainment got on their filmmaking kick, and before they even decided to start giving ...

To complement Valorum’s answer the Russo’s have spoken about Stan Lee’s cameo in Avengers: Endgame and only mention the part in person in 1970 and don't mention anything about the memorial. This would indicate that Stan Lee doesn’t have his name listed as it isn't mentioned when an opportunity was given to talk about his final involvement in the film. “...

Moreover, it seems that The Watcher only watch and never interfere (with an exception in Marvel Zombies I think), this seems to be kind of a rule (I don't think he spoke or interact with anybody at Black Panther's wedding). Stan Lee's character interacts with other people in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (he has is a keeper in Captain America: The Winter ...

He almost certainly gets paid for his cameos, but the amount of money he gets could be quite paltry, especially in comparison to the fortune he has played such a vital role in creating for Marvel. Stan gets paid for being Stan the Man. Stan gets paid for being Executive Producer. Stan gets paid for his gratuitous cameos. Stan Lee has made himself famous....

I'm not sure if this counts, but: In Lego Marvel Super Heroes on PlayStation, the Stan Lee character can become a hulk with Stan Lee's head

No, it's not real, and neither is the issue he names. The first "anniversary" issue of Spider-Man, published in May 1988, was called "Venom". For the 50th anniversary we got an entire year of "anniversary issues" from March 2012 through March 2013, which were titled "I Killed Tomorrow", "Ends of the Earth", "No Turning Back", "Alpha", "Danger Zone", and "...

Stan Lee wasn't playing Stan Lee (the famous and noted comic writer) in this particular cameo, he was just playing the part of "a man". “Here’s something a bit more interesting,” Sparr said. She held out a fax. “Possible gamma sickness. Milwaukee. A man drank one of those guarana sodas. Guess it had a little more kick than he was looking for.” “Where ...

This may have been confirmed, or at least getting a nod. If you’ve watched a movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’ve no doubt noticed comic book visionary Stan Lee popping up in little cameo roles. For years, it’s been rumored that, rather than being silly cameos, Lee is actually portraying the same person, specifically Uatu the Watcher, a ...

I don't know that the information is out there on how much he made on the cameos specifically, since he's more than just the guy in the background. But I do have an answer on what he was paid in general. Stan Lee sued Marvel in 2002 and that lawsuit tells a lot about the contract he had. He entered this contract in 1998 and I'm not sure if he ever ...
