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.

A general in World War II, who mistakes a random man for Captain America.
People who added this item 3849 Average listal rating (2661 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8
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).

Lee has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo as a beauty pageant judge.
People who added this item 1783 Average listal rating (1145 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.9
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.
