14. Thor (2011)


This time around Lee portrays Odin, the ruler of Asgard and a major god in Norse mythology. Director Kenneth Branagh, famous for his Shakespearean background, felt that Lee was the only possible choice for the role.

Just kidding. He is a guy with a pick-up truck, who attemps to pull the Mjolnir, Thor's hammer, off the ground shortly after it has arrived on Earth. Odin is played by Anthony Hopkins, so it's pretty awesome nevertheless.

15. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)


A general in World War II, who mistakes a random man for Captain America.

People who added this item 2564  Average listal rating (1659 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating 8.2 
16. The Avengers (2012)


With The Avengers being one of the most anticipated comic book films of all time, Lee stated beforehand that one way or another he would appear in this film "unless they shoot it on the Moon". He ended up playing a man interviewed for TV who doesn't believe that the Avengers are real.

There's also a deleted scene (with unfinished special effects, MetLife Building was supposed to be replaced by the Stark Tower) with a brief interaction between Lee and Steve Rogers (Captain America).

17. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)


Lee cameos as a school librarian who (almost) witnesses a battle between Spider-Man and the Lizard.

People who added this item 1259  Average listal rating (692 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.4 
18. Iron Man 3 (2013)
Lee has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo as a beauty pageant judge.

People who added this item 884  Average listal rating (426 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.3 
19. Thor: The Dark World (2013)
Lee cameos as a patient in a mental ward.


 

Stan Lee is an American comic book writer, editor, publisher, television personality, and the former president and chairman of Marvel Comics. He has co-created several iconic superheroes, such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Avengers. He started Marvel Comics' expansion from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation it is known as today. In consequence, it's only natural he gets to appear in movies based on Marvel Comics property.

Lee has also had several cameos in other movies and tv shows, including Mallrats, Heroes, Chuck and The Big Bang Theory.

Nice list! XD

Did he not have a cameo in X-Men 2? That's a shame.

what about blade? did he not have a cameo in that film?
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at Jan 8 19:58
Sorry, but these are the only ones so far. It's always nice to try to spot him, though.

Brilliant list, Love Stan Lee, his comics and cameos!
Posted: 1 year, 1 month ago at Mar 15 15:44
I believe I know why he wasn't in "X2: X-Men United". There was way too much cool shit going on! How could they squeeze a gratuitous Stan Lee cameo into the middle of all the brilliant chaos? =)

Maybe he could have been the security guard taking Xavier and his wheelchair to visit Magneto in prison if director Bryan Singer hadn't taken that role for himself.

A Genious

It would had been funny to see Stan Lee as a vampire in Blade.

Entertaining! Nice list!

Very cool list!
Posted: 5 months ago at Nov 25 6:46
Stan Lee was not in "X2: X-Men United" because "Spider-Man 2" was filming at the same time, and he didn't have time in his schedule to do both. He chose to do "Spider-Man 2", and I've always thought Bryan Singer should have had a picture of Stan in Iceman's house...maybe they could have referenced Bobby's grandfather, and shown Stan's picture. He didn't do Ghost Rider or the Blade movies, because those were only slightly tied to Marvel, and the studios involved tried to present them as not being part of the Marvel cinematic universe...luckily for Stan.
