UPDATE: Stan Lee Still Waiting On The Call For His CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Cameo
UPDATE: With the release of Winter Soldier set visits today, it has been confirmed Stan The Man does cameo. Turns out this is either old, he was pulling Agent M’s leg, or he misheard the question. Original story follows
Marvel has begun their gigantic year-long celebration for their 75th Anniversary with a series of special YouTube videos that look at the company’s long and illustrious history. The second video released this week is an interview with Stan “The Man“ Lee. The man who changed the comic book game forever talked about the creation of Spider-Man, but interviewer Agent M ended things by asking Lee if we could add Captain America: The Winter Soldier to his cameo resume. The legendary writer says he hasn’t heard anything from the Russo brothers yet.
You can watch the full video below, but Lee tells Agent M that “If I’m not [in it], you’ll hear from me. I haven’t heard about it yet. See, I think the problem is they’re probably figuring a cameo isn’t enough, how can we give Stan a supporting role? That may mean editing the script a little and changing things, so it may take time. I’m patient.” Now it’s important to note that this interview might have been conducted months ago and is just now getting posted. Lee has said that he won’t be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy, so maybe Marvel is scaling back on the cameos. The Russo brothers had said previously that they had an idea on what to do with Stan Lee‘s cameo, so maybe it has been filmed and the writer misunderstood the question. The film is complete and special screenings will be going on in just a few weeks. Time has run out if Lee wasn’t joking. Only time will tell. What do you think about Lee‘s comments? Do you hope the Lee cameo streak continues or do you think they’ve run their course?
