Marvel fans have enjoyed keeping a look out for the inevitable Stan Lee cameo. Whether it’s a Fox or Marvel Studios movie or even a TV show, the Stan Lee cameo has practically become a tradition since his first appearance in X-Men in 2000. So what does the Marvel legend have in store next?
While Lee has already filmed his cameos for Avengers: Infinity War, he has admitted that his favorite one so far was in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But as it turns out, he may have his eyes on something a little bit bigger in the future. In conversation with CinemaBlend, Lee says he’s looking forward to potentially co-starring in a Marvel movie in the future.
"The thing I loved about that cameo is, if you think about it, that is the only cameo I've done that had two scenes. It was more than a cameo,” he said, “It was almost like a role in the movie! So now I'm shooting for cameos that have three scenes, four scenes. Eventually I hope to be the co-star."
It was revealed in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that all of his cameos are actually the same character. Officially listed in the end credits as Watcher Informant, this new information regarding the cameos adds to the theory that Lee was portraying Uatu, a Watcher who looks after Earth. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige did confirm that Lee is portraying a Watcher, but did not go into details as to the character’s exact identity, nor is it known how much of his identity will actually be revealed in future films. Still, this new revelation does lend credence to the idea that Lee could have a bigger role in the MCU as time goes on.
