A still photographer for many movies in the MCU has uploaded a new behind-the-scene image of Stan Lee from Thor: Ragnarok. Lee is a stalwart in the comic book world, who created several key characters that makes MCU such as, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, and Thor, to name a few. Even fans who don’t know anything about with comic books had probably seen Lee before, as he cameoed in most Marvel movies over the years.
Beginning his cameo with The Trial of the Incredible Hulk in 1989, Lee appeared in several Marvel films before the MCU opened in 2008. He had appeared in other Marvel films, such as the X-Men and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy before Stark mistook him for Hugh Hefner in Iron Man.
Lee appeared in every MCU movie and Avengers: Endgame marked his last cameo for the MCU series. Back in 2017, Taika Waititi saved the Thor franchise with heartful Thor: Ragnarok, which Lee, of course, had a cameo in.
A new backstage photo of Lee at Thor Ragnarok has been shared by Chuck Zlotnick on Instagram. Zlotnick is a still photographer who has worked on a handful of films at MCU. Lee has played the alien barber who cut Thor’s hair while he was in prison. The image below shows Lee in costume on the Thor: Ragnarok set.
As mentioned above, Lee had his last guest appearance in Avengers: Endgame, but he still has a chance to appear in future films. Marvel can use pre-recorded clips for the next instalment of the MCU. But when the comic legend didn’t appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home, it seems like the previous clips won’t be used. However, like Deadpool 2, this image can be used in upcoming films.
Comic fans around the world mourned when Lee passed away in November 2018, but his legacy will always live on through the pages of comic books and characters brought to the big screen.
Everyone has their favourite Stan Lee guest appearance, but Thor: Ragnarok’s appearance was memorable, as he was responsible for drastically changing Thor’s appearance for this film and Avengers: Infinity War. Fans will never forget the comic legend, and seeing new photos behind the scenes like above will definitely put a nostalgic smile on any Marvel fan’s face.
