In the Avengers: Infinity War, post Thanos' Finger Snap, do we have any information regarding the Stan Lee cameos?

Is he alive or erased due to the snap?

    If next avengers movie takes too much time to come to theatre, if Stan died (in real life), it could be a tribute to him by making him disappeared due to Thanos incident. <= IMO . In universe, we don't kn ow yet. probably next movie provide some clarification or probably not

    Hint: Read the comics. While the MCU doesn't follow the comics to the letter, it follows a very similar arc. And there's no way Avengers 4 isn't going to follow the arc of the Infinity Gauntlet. Aug 30, 2018 at 13:03

    Stan Lee isn't, as far as I know, playing one person in the MCU who happens to pop up all over the place. He's a completely different person in each movie, so even if the snap had erased every single person we've seen Stan Lee play to date, that wouldn't prevent him from doing more cameos going forward.

    @AnthonyGrist ... actually one of the credit scenes in GotG Vol 2 has Stan discussing his various cameos with a species called "The Watchers" , hinting that the cameos are all of the same person.

  • Seemingly not, it says that he's still alive at 95.

1 Answer 1


Stan Lee Lives

We don't know how the finger snap will be resolved so it's possible that the whole thing will be undone in Avengers 4 but what we do know is that Stan Lee has already filmed that cameo.

During his appearance at Wizard World Nashville 2017, Lee's personal manager revealed that the legend has already filmed his cameos for five upcoming MCU entries, up to and including 2019's Avengers 4.

Noticeably missing from that list is Captain Marvel, which hits theaters in March 2019, prior to Avengers 4's release. It's unclear when Lee is planned to shoot a cameo for that, but one presumes it's on the MCU radar, as is a Lee cameo for 2019's sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. Despite his advanced age, there's no reason to assume that Lee will be gone anytime soon, so here's hoping he remains part of the MCU for many years to come.

    But what if he's cameo is inside the Soul stone. I wouldn't put his status in bold. Good find though Aug 30, 2018 at 10:25

    "... a Lee cameo for 2019's sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming" this actually proofs that being in an upcoming movie does not mean that one has survived the Snappening.
