I just got back from watching The Wolverine, and I was too caught up in the story/battle sequences to notice if Stan Lee made an appearance.

Did anyone notice him whilst watching the movie? If so, which scene was he in?


No, Stan lee only appears in the film versions of characters he created alone - he was not the sole creator of Wolverine.

This is also the reason why he does not have a cameo in Ghost Rider, Elektra or The Punisher.

This subject has approached before in a couple of SE questions here and here.

    Apparently he would've if he could've, going by @kham 's answer. – coleopterist Sep 3 '13 at 4:07

  • "Stan lee only appears in the film versions of characters he created alone" Then why was he in Deadpool, Big Hero 6, and Princess Diaries 2? – Stevoisiak May 27 '17 at 21:14

Stan Lee says he just didn't have time to fly to Australia to film the cameo.

  • I noticed that it was filmed in Australia. I wonder if Hugh wanted that badly. – user6005 Sep 3 '13 at 3:11

No, Stan Lee did not make an appearance in The Wolverine.

    He is, however, credited as an Executive Producer. – wbogacz Jul 28 '13 at 14:05
