Stan Lee’s Last Cameo is in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Joe Russo Says

The 22nd film in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe is right around the corner, and Avengers: Endgame could signal the “end” of a long-standing Marvel Studios tradition- the Stan Lee cameo.


Before Lee’s death, it was revealed he had filmed numerous cameos for upcoming MCU entries, again playing into the masterful planning across the universe.

It was widely believed that his last cameo would be in Spider-Man: Far From Home, but a recent Q & A with Infinity War and Endgame co-director Joe Russo says otherwise.

While appearing at a Marvel event in India, Russo revealed that Endgame will be Stan Lee’s last MCU appearance, as far as he knows.

“I believe that his [Stan Lee] final cameo is in Endgame. I don’t remember if he was well enough to do the cameo in Homecoming [we’re pretty sure he means “Far From Home”] or not. But I grew up on his comic books. Stan Lee was an idol of mine as a kid. To be able to have the opportunity to not only to work under the material he created but to work with him is a childhood dream come true.”

Obviously, we’ll be finding out when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019. Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit theaters on July 6th, 2019.
