Stan Lee managed to film his customary cameo for Avengers: Endgame before he died in November last year. But sadly, the Marvel Comics icon did not get to see the finished movie.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige says Stan liked waiting until the premiere of a film to see the final movie so never saw it finished. “Stan loved to wait to see the final movie at the premiere, so unfortunately he did not get to see the finished movie. Stan got a download of the full story the day he came and shot his cameo.”
Feige, who has masterminded to 22 movies so far in the Marvel series, also spoke briefly about the plans for the spin-off series which will land on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+. Shows centring on Vision and Scarlett Witch, Loki and Hawkeye are all in the pipeline.
Kevin Feige, who’s been the president of Marvel Studios since 2007 and has overseen all 22 films in the MCU, was answering fans’ questions on Reddit.
One of the biggest moments in Avengers: Endgame is the moment Captain America picks up Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer). It’s one of the most powerful weapons in existence and plenty of people have tried to lift it, but it can only be held by someone who is “worthy”.
So someone asked Feige. “Has Cap been worthy for a while (since Age of Ultron) or did something change in that moment?”
Feige said, “We think he was always worthy and he was being polite in Age of Ultron”.
All of that refers to a funny scene in the second Avengers movie where the different superheroes all try to lift the hammer.
