Remember when Stan Lee’s awesome cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 revealed he’d actually been a Watcher this whole time? Well, Lee’s touring of the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t going to stop, as the Generalissimo is set to cameo in the next five films from Marvel Studios, including both parts for Avengers: Infinity War.
At a Wizard World convention in Nashville, Tennessee this past weekend, Lee (accompanied by his manager, Max Anderson) confirmed that Lee has already filmed his cameos for Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and “both parts” of Avengers: Infinity War.
“What we can say about Avengers: Infinity War is that he filmed both parts, one and two,” Anderson told the Marvel faithful at Lee’s panel. “We did Ant-Man, we did Black Panther. We did Thor too.”
It’s important to remember that the films mentioned at the panel are all part of Disney-owned Marvel Studios and not Fox’s upcoming Marvel projects like X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Deadpool 2, which are filming now. Still, the door seems open for Lee to make his signature appearances there too; he did make cameo in both Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse last year (he sat out of Logan, however).
Perhaps because shooting for all five movies ran concurrently, it was easy to include Lee in all of them. But, it’s nice to know that Lee is guaranteed to stick around in the MCU even as the comic book icon slowly becomes an Elder of the Universe.
The next Marvel movie with Stan Lee, Thor: Rangarok, will be released in theaters on November 3.
