It's not a Marvel film without a Stan Lee cameo, this much is certain. To celebrate the comic book legend's 95th birthday, user Cap-10 on Reddit has put together a 10-minute video featuring every Stan Lee cameo so far, starting with 1989's The Trial of the Incredible Hulk. The video covers over 20 years of his cameos in films and TV shows, featuring both Marvel properties he created and a number of other notable cameos such as his appearance in 1995's Mallrats.
Before we're treated to another cameo from Lee in next month's Black Panther, this video offers a comprehensive look at all of Lee's appearances in movies and TV shows so far. From the fun glimpses to more overt jokes, there's a lot of unique appearances from him here. Going from flashing up in the background in the first X-Men movies, to his brief role in 2011's Thor, where he attempts to lift Thor's hammer, this video doesn't miss a thing.
Every few years, a compilation comes along outlining every appearance in a film or TV show from Lee, and there's no doubt we'll have to get another updated version next year. Kevin Fiege, Marvel Studios' chief, has teased that there are a lot more cameos to come. Despite his old age, nothing seems to be slowing him down. Just recently he appeared in Thor: Ragnarok, where he cut off Thor's iconic hair.
Lee's agent has confirmed he's already filmed his parts for Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers 4, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Black Panther. He's also expected to turn up in the Brie Larson-starring Captain Marvel, which is set for release early 2019. With the Disney Fox deal that recently took place meaning that Marvel Studios have the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters back again, it wouldn't be all that surprising if he started turning up in future X-Men movies, too.
Watch the supercut above, and check out a montage of his cameos here.
