Keep Your Eyes Peeled for the Late Stan Lee in Captain Marvel

The legacy of Stan Lee will live on for decades to come in his visionary creations in print and on screen. Gone, but certainly not forgotten, Lee will appear in the upcoming Captain Marvel. As is a tradition of all MCU films, Lee will have a cameo role and the film’s directors shared the first details about where we’ll spot him.

Fox 5’s Kevin McCarthy asked directors, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, what it was like to have the legendary Lee on set and what makes the perfect Stan Lee cameo.

“You know, it just felt right,” Fleck said. “When you look at the script and you’re like ‘Where are we going to put Stan Lee in this movie?’ it felt like the right place to throw him in that scene.”

Fleck went on to reflect what would surely be our feelings if we got to meet the master ourselves.

“It’s just great. When he comes on set, it’s a real honor to meet him. He’s a legend in this business and everyone really like pays attention and people come out of the woodwork, you know. Some crew member you didn’t even know will come out of trying to shake his hand. But really, it’s cool,” Fleck said.

Captain Marvel will be the first MCU film to feature year following his passing. It is sure to be an emotional moment for all of us.

There seem to be plenty of lighthearted moments planned in the movie to brighten the mood. McCarthy also spoke with stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Lashana Lynch. Apparently, there is a witty moment where Nick Fury (Jackson) has to prove he is not a Skrull by using an obscure fact about himself. McCarthy asked each of the interviewees what their proof would be in real life and they didn’t seem to have very good answers. Seems very suspicious!

Captain Marvel flies into theaters March 8.
