'Avengers: Endgame' Quarantine Watch Party: Russo Brothers recall Stan Lee's days on set, fans say they miss him
Stan Lee is widely and rightfully regarded as the man who breathed life into much of our favorite Marvel superheroes. And The Russo Brothers in their live-tweet session while being part of Comicbook's 'Avengers: Endgame' Watch Party paid rich tribute to Stan the Man on Twitter.
They captioned the tweet: "We really miss Stan. It was always everyone’s favorite day when Stan came to set… #AvengersAssemble." And fans responded to the tweet by paying their respects to the icon.
"We all miss Stan! LEGEND!!! A true inspiration in my young adult life. He always we’ll be a MAJOR inspiration to me!" tweeted a fan.
"Car Girl here! It was such an honor to be on set with Stan! I had such an amazing experience filming that scene! #AvengersAssemble" wrote Erica Ribley.
"His memory lives on as you continue his legendary work," said a fan. "I hope there would be a way to continue his on-screen legacy," said another. "RIP to the man who started it all!" commented a fan.
"Missing him. Mr. Stan. His every appearance makes goosebumps!" remarked a fan. "Marvel movies never been the same without him," read one of the tweets. Here's probably one of the most emotional tweets: "He was truly one of the best people to walk this Earth. So grateful for everything he ever did."
Another fan said: "RIP Stan. A legend we will never forget." Some wondered if Stan Lee would be in future Marvel movies."Will he be present in new marvel films? Through CGI?" tweeted a fan.
Last year, several MCU stars paid tribute to Stan Lee in ABC's 'Celebrating Marvel's Stan Lee'. Tom Hiddleston who plays Loki in the MCU said Lee was in more movies than he was. "Most writers do not have cameos in dozens of movies, but he wasn't a writer, he was a star," he said.
For popular host Jimmy Kimmel, Lee was a superhero as he thanked him for being a big part of his childhood and also showed off his 'Manly Stan Lee' sketch where Lee was shown wearing a cape. "I was a nerd," Kimmel jokingly admits. Paul Battany who played J.A.R.V.I.S. and Vision in the 'Iron Man' trilogy and 'Avengers' said Lee was a big thinker. "He gave us our mythology, Stan Lee wasn't just a creator of comics, he was larger than life."
The cameos were a talking point as for some celebs, it was much more fun to have him in the movie and for Cobie Smulders, his cameo as the security guard in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' was her favorite.
'Avengers: Endgame' is available for streaming on Disney+.
