A Marvel movie is incomplete without a Stan Lee cameo, and 'Avengers: Endgame' doesn't disappoint
The comics legend, who died last year, was honored in the Avengers movie for one last time and we couldn't have been happier.
Apart from creating some of the most iconic characters in the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee has appeared in some memorable cameo appearances in the movies that those characters inspired, much to the joy of fans.
Sadly, the comics legend pased away at the age of 95 years, before the Avengers movie could get a chance to shoot a scene with him. Despite the unfortunate circumstances, Marvel didn't fail to pay tribute to the legend. Taking various clips from Marvel movies showcased earlier, 'Avengers Endgame' took a scene where Lee was seen riding his car in style. Showing the man in his true form, that is, charming and beaming with happiness, 'Endgame' made sure that the last image that the audience has of Stan Lee in a Marvel movie is one that they would always remember.
Prior to this, Lee made an appearance on 'Captain Marvel'.
Lee passed away on 12 November 2018. He was transported from his Hollywood Hills home and was taken to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he later died. Over the past year, Lee wasn't doing well when it came to his health and there had been reports that he suffered several illnesses including pneumonia and vision-related issues.
He started Marvel with Jack Kirby in 1961 with 'The Fantastic Four' and then went on to make many other popular comics such as Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man among others.
In 2009, Marvel Entertainment was bought by the Walt Disney Co. for $4 billion. Lee often spoke about how he thought that the work he did wasn't valuable. "I used to think what I did was not very important," he said back in April 2014. "People are building bridges and engaging in medical research, and here I was doing stories about fictional people who do extraordinary, crazy things and wear costumes. But I suppose I have come to realize that entertainment is not easily dismissed."
People were quick to pour their emotions on social media after hearing about his death. Kevin Feige, the producer, and president of Marvel Studios tweeted, "No one has had more of an impact on my career and everything we do at Marvel Studios than Stan Lee. Stan leaves an extraordinary legacy that will outlive us all. Our thoughts are with his daughter, his family, and his millions of fans. #ThankYouStan #Excelsior!" while Robert Downey Jr, who played Iron Man, simply wrote: "I owe it all to you, Rest in Peace Stan."
