And possibly ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, too...
Stan Lee makes a posthumous cameo in the forthcoming Avengers: Endgame movie, the boss of Marvel Studios has revealed.
Kevin Feige confirmed that Lee, the late co-creator of the Marvel Comics franchise, will make one of his last appearances in a Marvel film.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Feige said that Lee’s cameo in the movie, which is released in the UK on April 26, will not be his final appearance.
Asked if Lee will appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home, Feige said: “We’ll see. We’re heading – we shot a couple of others, so we’re coming up on the last of them, yes.”
The sequel to 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War will bring the franchise’s Phase Three to a close.
Feige has previously spoken about the importance of Endgame, saying it “will bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale.”
In recent news, Gwyneth Paltrow (who plays Rescue/Pepper Potts) has hinted about her future in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. Her character’s fate was never confirmed in the last Avengers.
“I mean, I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point,” she told Variety last month.
“I feel very lucky that I did it, because I actually got talked into it. I was friend with [Iron Man director] Jon Favreau. It was such a wonderful experience making the first Iron Man and then to watch how important it has become to fans.”
As we noted in our guide to Avengers: Endgame, Paltrow’s comments sound a little bit too reflective – is Pepper’s time up?
