Marvel movies are known for their teasing mid- and post-credits scenes, but with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, they up the ante with five of them after the conclusion of the movie. Some are jokes, but some have huge ramifications for future Marvel movies. Here’s how and why.
In 2015, British broadcaster Sky commissioned a new superhero/crime show emblazoned with the divine branding of Stan Lee (side note: stop doing that) called Lucky Man. But while the first season of the series has come and gone in the U.K., the show has yet to make it stateside... until, say, right now.
There are some things you can count on to always be there, and the Stan Lee movie cameo is definitely one of them. If the Marvel universe is all connected, then Stan’s gone from being mistaken for Hef to a delivery man in the course of it. I’d watch a movie explaining that.
If there’s any one constant in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (other than the, literally, dozens of constants within the several-year narrative), it’s that we’re guaranteed to get a Stan Lee cameo. However, as one webcomic-turned-comic book points out, those cameos have a dark side. One that will bring out the Stan Lee…
Dr. Doom is really, honestly, a beautiful creation and I would have forgiven every single awful F4nt4stic Four movie if they’d gotten him right. That said, Stan Lee would like to stick for Victor von Doom’s right to want to rule the world.
The world is already overwhelmed with projects that have had comics luminary Stan Lee’s name slapped on them for no reason other than trying to capitalize and name recognition and past works. What’s one more?
Fox. Is making a movie. Set in the ‘70s. In which a young Stan Lee—not current Marvel movie cameo extraordinaire Stan Lee—stars. As a “Roger Moore as James Bond” style hero. With an alter ego. What the actual what is going on?
There’s a new a virtual reality app named Hindsight VR that currently allows people to “join” Stan Lee at Comic-Con, no matter where they happen to be. It’s all fine and dandy, but there’s been an even bigger breakthrough as a result: Technically, Virtual Stan can attend every single Comic-Con from now until the end…
Or so wonders Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee, who says the actor’s performance as Peter Parker has blown him away in a manner that neither Tobey Maguire not Andrew Garfield managed. “I can’t believe it,” Lee gushed at the recent Denver Comic Con. “It’s as if we created a living being to be Spider-Man, and it turned…
Even after Stan Lee left Marvel, he never stopped creating superheroes and now one of those newer creations is coming to the big-screen. The animated superhero Chakra the Invincible is turning into a live-action Bollywood movie.
Comic Con is headed to Tokyo, courtesy of Steve Wozniak. It’s the first time the convention will ever be held in Japan, and it’s planned for December 2016. It’s going to be a sister event to the Apple co-founder’s Silicon Valley Comic Con, and the Woz himself appeared in Tokyo last weekend to get people excited. In…
This is the point we’ve reached now. Hot Toys has made so many eerily accurate replices of Marvel’s movie superheroes, they’re now turning to a man who played a role in some of their creation stories for toy inspiration. Yes, now even Stan Lee is getting immortalized in plastic. Excelsior!
Hey, folks! Sorry to dispense with my normal nonsense, but I got a really important letter that I‘m very excited to share. I don’t get a ton of letters dealing with real issues, but I’m always happy to try to help. If you only read this for silliness, don’t worry—there’s still an insane Mad Max theory and the world’s…
20th Century Fox ended its Hall H Comic-Con panel on Saturday by bringing together the casts of Fantastic Four, X-Men Apocalypse, The Wolverine, Deadpool and even Channing Tatum as Gambit for an awesome group photo.
After many years helping to create superhero icons alongside the likes of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and many other creators, Stan Lee is getting the honour many of his characters have had for decades: An action figure! It is, of course, as wonderful and as weird as a Stan Lee figure should be.
How have Stan Lee's ideas about superpowers changed as he's gotten older? In this sketch from Key & Peele, the Marvel Comics creator pitches several new characters based on his more recent frustrations and desires.
What do you get as a present for Stan Lee, the man who has a cameo in every Marvel movie? How about a sculpture of his face fashioned into a cameo jewel? Someone commissioned this Stan Lee cameo as a gift for Lee and you can buy one for yourself.
There's a rumor going around that Stan Lee, who has managed to cameo in almost every Marvel movie including those made by Sony and Fox, is not just playing random characters but is instead Uatu, the cosmic alien known as The Watcher. This rumor is dumb, and this compilation of Lee's cameos proves why.
Updated! Apparently Disney didn't forbid the scene, because they never saw it. Director James Gunn took to Instagram to clear up the story. It boils down to this: He shot it with a double (seen in the pic below) but before the real Stan could film it, decided it was too similar to Star-Lord's finger gag. Good call!
The answer depends on how much you think Stan Lee knows about Marvel's movie plans. But he said it was happening at Fan Expo Canada.
