Kevin Feige Says Stan Lee Loved Every One Of His Cameos

Once the news broke that Stan Lee had passed away, the internet quickly flooded with tributes from stars and filmmakers who felt indebted to the writer for his unparalleled contributions to the superhero genre. And as a man whose career is utterly inseparable from the Marvel brand, it figures that Kevin Feige would be full of kind words for the legendary comic book creator.

The current Marvel Studios head met Lee on his first major film job as associate producer for 2000’s X-Men, for which Stan Lee would shoot the first in a long line of Marvel movie cameos. Since then, the pair have reunited many times, and in an interview with THR, Feige recalled how Lee would always bring some fresh energy to the on-set atmosphere.

“It would be a holiday on set, when he came to do this cameos. That’s how much he inspired people. Whether it

Relive All Of Stan Lee’s Marvel Cameos With This Awesome Gallery

Which Marvel hero has shown up in more films than any of the Avengers or the X-Men? That’s right, it’s the one and only Stan Lee, who’d been a fixture of nearly every production from the House of Ideas for the past two decades. Whether it was released by Disney, Fox or Sony, the industry legend was always welcome to appear for a cameo in the latest film based on the franchise that he gave birth to, and nearly every single time he popped up, it was a treat for fans.

Known primarily for creating such iconic characters as Spider-Man, Hulk, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four and so many other great Marvel heroes and villains, Lee also became the undisputed king of cameos in his lifetime. From Captain America: Civil War and The Defenders to this year’s Avengers: Infinity War, not a Marvel movie – or TV show!

Kevin Feige Teases Future Stan Lee Cameos

Even among filmgoers who’ve never touched a comic book, Stan Lee is still a recognizable figure for his traditional Marvel movie cameos. And though the legendary writer is no longer with us, you can expect to see him at least a couple more times on our screens in upcoming McU releases like Captain Marvel and Avengers 4.

In fact, with directors Anthony and Joe Russo explaining earlier this year that Lee’s cameos were filmed in bulk, there’s no telling how many more McU appearances the late publisher might still have to go. In an interview with Variety, however, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige thought it best that Lee’s future screen outings stayed a mystery for the time being:

“I’m not going to tell you what specifically, but Stan always appreciated a good surprise.”

Feige offered much the same line when he spoke to THR, suggesting that

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Will Not Feature A Stan Lee Cameo

Fans are still reeling from the sad news that legendary Marvel creator Stan Lee passed away yesterday at the grand age of 95. It’ll be hard to come to terms with the fact that we won’t see Stan The Man show up for a welcome cameo in Marvel movies in the future, but thankfully, Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has suggested that Lee already filmed a few cameos for next year’s McU outings which we can look forward to.

However, don’t expect to see Lee show up in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The pic based on the mutant super-team co-created by Stan won’t feature the customary cameo from the Marvel icon, according to EW, as the tale of Jean Grey’s descent into the dangerous Dark Phoenix entity will be “taking a more grounded, gritty approach.”

We can certainly see the logic here, as Lee’s cameos typically

Kevin Feige Recalls His First Time Meeting Stan Lee On X-Men Set

Kevin Feige has a long history of bringing Marvel comics to the screen that goes back beyond the launch of the McU to his work as associate producer on 2000’s X-Men. It’s here that the Marvel Studios head met the man who helped lay the foundations for so much of the work Feige would go on to do, and in an interview with Deadline, he reflected on this first encounter with the late Stan Lee.

The original X-Men movie would kick off the tradition of Lee getting cameos in every major Marvel film, and when Feige had his first meeting with the legendary writer on the set, he saw an energy in the figure that would stay in him right up until his final days.

“Every meeting with Stan Lee was better than the last,” Feige told Deadline. “That’s been true from the first time I met him

Here’s Every Single Stan Lee Marvel Cameo

Here’s Every Single Stan Lee Marvel Cameo
Stan Lee was a God to fans of comic books and superhero movies around the world, and many viewed Lee’s short-but-sweet cameos as the best parts of Marvel films. As a tribute to the former president and chairman of Marvel Comics, who died at age 95 on Monday, we’ve compiled a list of all his cameos in the Marvel universe.

The Trial of the Incredible Hulk” (1989)

Lee made his first cameo nearly 30 years ago in the TV movie, as a jury member in “David” Banner’s (Hulk’s alter-ego) imagined trial.

X-Men” (2000)

Stan Lee’s feature film cameo (unfortunately his “Blade” appearance was left on the cutting room floor) was in the premiere “X-Men” flick. Fans spotted him selling hot dogs on the beach while the recently transformed Senator Kelly emerges from the waves.

When the Green Goblin causes an explosion, Lee was the bystander who shields a young girl from debris.

Stan Lee’s Marvel Movie & TV Cameos – A Photo Gallery
Stan Lee, who died Monday at age 95, is known for creating hundreds of characters for Marvel Comics, many of which became famous in their film or TV incarnations. That success created a second Stan Lee industry: cameo-ing in films and shows based on characters he helped create.

Like Alfred Hitchcock before him, Lee became his own Easter egg in movies for the likes of Marvel Studios’ blockbuster Avengers (Disney), X-Men (Fox) and Spider-Man (Sony) series. That includes Paramount’s Iron Man in 2008; soon after, Disney acquired Marvel and propelled the Avengers into one of history’s most lucrative film franchises.

Lee also voiced countless roles in animated series, including narrating series based on The Incredible Hulk and memorably Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends in the early- to mid-1980s.

Lee has a total of 121 acting/narrating credits, according to IMDb, and the slew of his creations on the big screen kept him busy.

A Look Back at All 35 of Stan Lee's Cheeky Cameos in Superhero Movies

Watching a Marvel movie over the last decade was like participating in a game of Where's Waldo, except instead of a bespectacled man in red and white stripes, you were on the lookout for a comic-book legend. That legend, of course, was Stan Lee, creator of some of our favorite superheroes and arguably one of Marvel's best Easter eggs, who passed away at the age of 95 on Nov. 12 after battling pneumonia and other medical issues.

While Lee has made cameos in countless Marvel movies and TV series, as well as non-Marvel shows and films, his most memorable appearances were in Marvel live-action superhero movies dating back to the very first Hulk film in 1989. If you want to look back on his legendary cameos, here's every one we could find, with the exception of the Deadpool trailer, which, while hilarious, wasn't from the movie.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Winnie the Pooh trailer revealed at X018

During the X018 event in Mexico City, fans of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts got a glimpse of Winnie the Pooh in the new Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer.

This isn’t the first time the franchise has visited the 100 Acre Wood and although the game is already choc-a-block full of Disney characters there are few that are as beloved as the “tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff”.

If Winnie the Pooh doesn’t interest you (then why not?) the trailer also provides glimpses of other characters of the game interacting with our hero Sora, including Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Hero 6 and Tangled. There are even hints as to what the storyline could be with the shadowy Organisation Xiii.

Kingdom Hearts 3 will be available on 29th January 2019 on Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

Will Brad Bird fly as the first animated feature director to win an Oscar three times with ‘Incredibles 2’?

Will Brad Bird fly as the first animated feature director to win an Oscar three times with ‘Incredibles 2’?
Let it be known that Brad Bird, the first director ever to win the animated feature category twice with 2004’s “The Incredibles” and 2007’s “Ratatouille,” could become the first helmer to win thrice, thanks to his summer superhero smash, “Incredibles 2.”

In the 17 years since the Academy Awards added a category devoted to animated features, the honor has gone to just one sequel, 2010’s “Toy Story 3.” Its Pixar predecessors, 1995’s “Toy Story” and 1999’s “Toy Story 2” missed out on having that opportunity.

Among the sequels that did make the cut but went home trophy-less are 2004’s “Shrek 2,” 2011’s “Kung Fu Panda 2,” 2013’s “Despicable Me 2” (whose 2010 original was not nominated) and 2014’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” If you recall, “Dragon 2” from DreamWorks was considered the front-runner that year, but Disney’s cuddly “Big Hero 6” sneaked in there somehow.

Netflix Backs ‘Jacob and the Sea Beast’ From ‘Big Hero 6’ Director Chris Williams (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Netflix is bolstering its family entertainment offerings by getting into business with one of the biggest names in animation.

The streaming giant will produce “Jacob and the Sea Beast,” a new film from Chris Williams, the co-director of the Disney films “Moana,” “Big Hero 6,” and “Bolt.” The movie will be Williams’ first as solo director, a rarity in animation, where the scale and complexity of the projects typically demands a few hands at the tiller.

Williams wrote the screenplay, which, according to the log line, follows “a charming seafarer who sails into uncharted waters and discovers an unlikely ally in a sea monster.” The film was partly inspired by the fantastical beasts that adorned 16th and early 17th century nautical maps. Their presence alluded to the undiscovered countries that lay beyond the borders of the known world.

Titans’ Batman actor revealed?

Although we’ve only seen a few obscured glimpses of Bruce Wayne so far, it’s only a matter of time until Batman makes his presence felt in Titans, and Screen Rant believes it may have uncovered who’ll be donning the cape and cowl in the DC Universe live-action series.

The site bases its theory on the below shot from the third episode, where we saw Bruce – from behind – watching the newly-orphaned Dick Grayson and his case worker through a two-way mirror:

The site speculates that the actor in the shot is Into the BadlandsLewis Tan, who has recently been seen as Zhou Cheng in Marvel’s Iron Fist and as Shatterstar in Fox’s Deadpool 2.

As it happens, the British-born Tan had previously tweeted out a photo of him attending a meeting at DC, stating that his father had first come to Hollywood as an actor

Oscars 2019: Wes Anderson and Pixar Face Off as Academy Confirms the 25 Films in Best Animated Feature Race
Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs” and Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” are two of the 25 movies that have been officially submitted this year for the Best Animated Feature Oscar. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the official submissions list, which includes titles from regulars of the category, such as Walt Disney Animation Studios (“Wreck-It Ralph 2”), GKids (“Mirai”), and Illumination Entertainment (“The Grinch”).

The Oscar for best animated feature includes five nominees. Both “Isle of Dogs” and “Incredibles 2” are frontrunners for a nomination at this point, with the Pixar superhero adventure being a likely candidate for a win thanks to its critical acclaim and its more than $1 billion at the global box office. “The Incredibles” won the category in 2004, when the award was in its fourth year. Recent winners of the Oscar include “Coco,” “Zootopia,” “Inside Out,” and “Big Hero 6.”
