Every Stan Lee Marvel Cameo
Today we pay tribute to Stan Lee, who passed away today. A true original, the Marvel comics chairman and writer/editor/publisher dreamed up many our favorite Marvel characters and for that we owe him a major debt of gratitude.
Mr. Lee’s Marvel movie cameos are legendary — his first was in a 1989 Hulk TV movie, and since 2000 he’s made an appearance in every Marvel film! In tribute, we're recapping every cameo appearance.
Re-watch these classics and see if you can spot him:
Frankly, we love Lee’s cameo as a hot dog vendor.
It’s fairly fun to find Lee playing a man at the fair in the first Spider-Man movie.
Lee’s cameo has him crossing the road in Daredevil. He’s probably just trying to get to the other side.
It’s safe to assume Lee was happy to play a Security guard in Ang Lee’s Hulk.
