Neil Gaiman Slams Bill Maher For Disrespecting Stan Lee’s Legacy

As the outpouring of online tributes to the late Stan Lee continue, this period of collective mourning has inevitably seen its share of conflict, much of it stemming from a controversial blog post written by Real Time host Bill Maher.

In this well-circulated piece, the comedian and political commentator used the renowned writer’s recent passing as a jumping-off point for a blanket criticism of comic book culture in general, arguing that comics represent an unimportant and juvenile art form that doesn’t deserve to be taken seriously.

Naturally, the fan backlash came hard and fast, and among these condemnations was a tweet from Neil Gaiman, a writer perhaps best known for his comic book series The Sandman. The author’s short message dismisses the controversial piece as a cry for attention before observing how Lee’s legacy and popularity overshadow Maher’s.

Marvel Fans Think Deadpool Should Take Over Stan Lee’s Cameos

The Stan Lee cameo has been a cherished tradition in Marvel Comics adaptations for many years now, and even in the wake of his passing, the writer still has at least a couple more scenes lined up in future McU installments. But once Lee makes his last onscreen appearance in the Marvel Studios franchise, some fans have suggested a new tradition to take its place – namely, give Deadpool the cameos.

In some ways, this idea makes a fair amount of sense, seeing how the meta-humored Wade Wilson is that rare Marvel hero who can often get away with defying the laws of continuity. What’s more, with the Disney/Fox deal on the horizon, this should soon be manageable from a legal perspective. On the other hand, many fans would no doubt reject the idea of anyone taking Lee’s place, especially a character that he himself didn’t create,

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Creed II star reflected on the legacy of the late, great comic book creator.

“[He] literally changed the face of entertainment in so many different ways,” Jordan said, “He showed people how to dream; how to escape.”

In reference to the writer’s traditional cameo, Jordan went on to say that he was “honored to be a part of one of the last films [Lee] got a chance to be a part of,” before signing off his tribute with, “Rest in peace, Stan Lee. We lost a really, really good one.”

Case in point, this anecdote which recalls how Lee surprised Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr,. at his birthday party a few years ago.

According to Lee’s longtime manager Brad Herman, the comic book legend was invited to Downey Jr.’s big 50th birthday bash but couldn’t make it. So he sent a note to the Tony Stark actor on – what else? – Spider-Man stationary. In typical Stan style, the note read: “May Destiny grant you good health and much time. You deserve so much more than this simple rhyme.” He signed off with his classic catchphrase: “Excelsior.”

Stan Lee’s Final Year Was Full Of Betrayal, Chaos And Unhappiness

As the tributes flood in for the departed Stan Lee, it’s important to remember that while the great man left us a magnificent and inspiring legacy of superheroism, the last year of his life was pockmarked by unnecessary drama and sinister figures. I’ve been writing about Lee’s problems for a while now, and together, they make for a series of increasingly strange and worrying stories that had many concerned for the wellbeing of the comic book legend.

They began last summer when Joan, his wife of seven decades died. Sensing vulnerability, the vultures swooped in and began picking at his fortune and exploiting his fame. There’d been repeated reports of power struggles over who will care for Lee, with those responsible ending up controlling his financial affairs. Into this came florist turned publicist Jerry Olivarez, Lee’s longtime road manager Max Anderson and memorabilia dealer Keya Morgan

Stan Lee Wanted To Make More Marvel Cameos Before He Died

Few people have a better understanding of Stan Lee’s immense contributions to comic book history than the man who took over his role as Marvel Comics Eic, Roy Thomas. So when the news broke earlier this week of the writer’s passing, it figures that Lee’s old friend and colleague had some reverent words to say about the legend, while also recalling his continued enthusiasm for his patented Marvel movie cameos.

Speaking to Bleeding Cool, Thomas reminisced about Lee’s final days, saying that he was still keen to return to the big screen so long as it didn’t create too many problems:

“At that time, it was obvious that he lacked much of the old Stan Lee energy that everybody had got to know at conventions and in movie cameos, but when I asked him about future cameos, he expressed a real interest in making them,

Kevin Feige Teases Stan Lee Surprises In Upcoming Marvel Studios Movies

Stan Lee’s passing was a sad day for all. Over the last 50 years, his groundbreaking comic book work in the 1960s and beyond dominated the genre and went a long way to making Marvel Comics what it is today, which itself spawned the outrageously successful and critically beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as the X-Men franchise and myriad other standalone features.

And though those films might have spanned multiple planets and eras, there’s been one constant throughout all of them: a cheeky and often humorous cameo by Lee himself. In fact, he became so notorious for popping up that he made an appearance in the PlayStation 4 smash Marvel’s Spider-Man and, even more unexpectedly, in the DC film Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.

Though you’d expect these to finish now, it’s been widely reported that Marvel Studios (presumably conscious of Lee’s age) shoot

Avengers 4 Star Sebastian Stan Shares His Memories Of Stan Lee

As the world continues to process the news of Stan Lee’s passing, many McU regulars have offered their heartfelt thoughts and reflections on the man who helped make Marvel what it is today. Among these tributes is one from Sebastian Stan, who’s had a decades-spanning journey through this comic book universe in the role of Bucky Barnes.

Speaking to Collider, the star shared a quick memory from the times he met Lee in person.

“I only met him a few times,” Stan said. “I never got a full one-on-one with him but he was always like, ‘Remember, Bucky’s one of the good ones. Bucky’s a good guy.’”

Though Lee himself wasn’t involved in the creation of Captain America’s oldest friend, his work as a writer proved fundamental in shaping the universe the character now occupies.

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

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.

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.”

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
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.

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.
