Stan Lee Returns to the Set of Avengers: Infinity War

Way back in April, the Generalissimo himself, Stan Lee, paid a visit to the set of Avengers: Infinity War, and now the co-creator of many of the characters that will be seen in the film has returned. Star Robert Downey Jr. posted a photo from the set featuring himself with Lee, directors Anthony and Joe Russo, and co-stars Tom Holland and Benedict Cumberbatch (notable that all three heroes in the photo were created in part by Lee). Check it out below!
