Captain Marvel Opens With A Very Touching Stan Lee Tribute

According to those who've already seen Captain Marvel, the film opens with a very touching tribute to the legendary Stan Lee.


Though it’s been roughly three months since Stan Lee’s unfortunate passing, comic book fans around the world are still shaken by the loss of a true legend. Not only was he responsible for characters such as the X-Men, Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man and countless others, but he also made a number of cameos in Marvel movies and even continued making convention appearances well into his twilight years. Suffice it to say, he was always a man of the people.

And though he does have one more cameo appearance to look forward to in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, we’re still unsure of whether or not he filmed anything for Captain Marvel, as there’ve been conflicting reports on the matter ever since his death. Even if he didn’t get the chance to shoot something though, we can now confirm that the movie will still acknowledge him as apparently, it opens with a very touching tribute to the iconic comic book creator.

At least, that’s according to one user over on Twitter who caught an early press screening tonight, and though they refrained from going into any further details, it’s nice to know that CM pays tribute to Stan Lee in some way. Not to mention that the individual also claims that Marvel fans will love the tribute – whatever it might be.

While Stan Lee is now no longer with us, his legacy will surely continue to live on for years to come through his work in the comic book medium. And though he’ll always be missed, it’s clear that the House of Ideas has no intention of letting his memory fade away, as the tributes continue to surface across various mediums. Again, it’s unclear if he has an actual cameo in Captain Marvel like he does in Endgame, but with the film arriving in just a few short weeks, we’ll know soon enough.
