The connectivity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unparalleled, as well over a dozen films and a handful of TV shows have replicated the continuity of the comic book world in live action. They do have a secret weapon though, which fans are always eager for with each new film: the Stan Lee cameos.
Speaking at a Q&A following a screening of Captain America: Civil War this weekend, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that Lee flew down to Marvel’s production home in Atlanta, Georgia to film not one, not two, but four of his upcoming cameos in one day.
“We do not shoot random ones. They’re always very specific,” Feige said of the Stan Lee cameos (via Cinema Blend). “A couple of months ago in Atlanta, he flew down and we shot four in one day — for four various projects. They’re all awesome! They’re all totally different. And he was unbelievable. He was on fire. He came in, he sat here, he stood there, he stood in this window, and then he went home.”
The next four films on Marvel’s release calendar are Doctor Strange on November 4, 2016, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5, 2017, Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7, 2017, and Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017. However, it’s possible that Lee already shot his Doctor Strange cameo while the film was in production in London, meaning his other cameo could be for either Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War.
