Stan Lee has passed away at the age of 95. I first knew him by name thanks to the venerable (and massively cheesy) cartoon, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, which Lee narrated, usually finishing each show with a cry of “EXCELSIOR!”
But my favorite tribute to his work as the face of Marvel Comics comes from the YouTube channel, “The Cosmonaut Variety Hour.” With a warning that adult language is employed, here’s the host’s ranking of Stan Lee cameos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Given the advances in CGI, most recently in the de-aging of Samuel L. Jackson in the Captain Marvel trailer, how likely do you think it’ll be that we’ll still have Stan Lee cameos until the last Marvel movie in the history of humanity is made? I suppose it depends on the contracted fee to his estate for his likeness rights. Then again, if Leonardo Di Caprio gets to play Lee in a biographical film, perhaps Leo can take over the duties of StanLee2.0?
