Every Stan Lee cameo since the first ‘Iron Man’ movie

On Monday, the world was shocked by the death of Stan Lee, the creator of many of the beloved Marvel Comics. Lee helped create a universe that millions of people escaped to. His death means there will also be very few of his iconic cameos remaining. Here’s a list of Lee’s cameos throughout the Marvel movies. 

Iron Man (2008)

In the first Iron Man movie, Lee was at the same gala as Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Stark mistakes him for Hugh Hefner because he was with three girls. 

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

Lee’s cameo was a random citizen who accidentally had a drink that had some of Bruce Banner’s (Edward Norton)’s blood in it. It gave him a bit of a pep in his step. 

Iron Man 2 (2010)

For the second Iron Man movie, Lee was mistaken again for someone else by Stark. Lee was wearing suspenders, a red shirt, and a black and purple tie, and was mistaken as Larry King.

Thor (2011)

Lee was one of the many people trying to pick up Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, with his truck. When the bed of his truck rips off in the attempt, Lee appears as the driver asking if it worked.
