Stan Lee Filmed FOUR Cameos in One Day

If there’s one thing geeks like, it’s an Easter Egg. A cheeky nod to say ‘we know you’re a fan; here’s something just for you.’ Every time the line “Are we having fun yet?” is uttered in iZombie (a reference to the fantastic Rob Thomas show Party Down) I squeal a bit and grab my boyfriend’s arm. Possibly the most famous of all the nerdy Easter Eggs is the Stan Lee cameo in the Marvel movies. He’s avoided falling buildings, been a skeevy guy with a hot blonde lady friend, and delivered a parcel for ‘Mr Tony Stank’ among many memorable appearances in the franchise. And even though he’s no spring chicken, he’s not slowing down any time soon!

The LA Times reported that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said that Lee had filmed four cameos in one day, when answering questions at a recent Q&A session. Feige explained that the cameos are not just shoe-horned in, but are carefully planned out parts of each movie. He said that all of the cameos were unique and awesome in their own right

“We do not shoot random ones. They’re always very specific. A couple of months ago in Atlanta, he flew down and we shot four in one day — for four various projects.”

Feige is clearly in awe of the 93-year-old legend. He went on to say, “He was unbelievable. He was on fire. He came in, he sat here, he stood there, he stood in this window, and then he went home.”

Feige didn’t elaborate on which projects Lee had filmed the cameos for, however with the studio having films scheduled until 2020, he still has plenty of work ahead of him!
