The world of comics would be pretty boring if it weren’t for Stan Lee helping create characters like Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Thor, and Daredevil, and the spry guy has managed to appear alongside many of those creations on the big screen.

If you’re not a comic book fan, you might’ve wondered about a certain older gentleman that always seemed to pop up in various movies, including, Spider-Man, Thor, The Fantastic Four, The Avengers, and many more. Whether it’s a speaking part or just a glimpse of his face as the action unfolds around him, the man who helped make comic books a success has managed to make his presence known in a memorable way within the on-screen version of the Marvel Universe.

Before you head over to Twitter and wish Stan the Man a happy birthday at @TheRealStanLee, check out the trailer »
