Stan Lee Didn’t Get The Chance To See The Final Cut Of ‘Avengers: Endgame’





Marvel has made some of the highest grossing movies of all time, but none of it would’ve been possible if not for Stan Lee. The comic book writer, editor, publisher, and producer co-created lots of the comic characters we know and love and has a cameo in every film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Now that “Avengers: Endgame” has been released, Marvel Studios is much more open about its secrets and creative process from the first eleven years of filmmaking. Sadly, one of the things Kevin Feige revealed was that the late and great Stan Lee never got the chance to see the final cut of “Avengers: Endgame” before he passed away.

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, and the topic of Lee and “Avengers: Endgame” came up.

He shared:

“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.”

A true fan of his own world through and through, it makes sense that Stan Lee would want to wait until the premiere to get the full effect.

Just like every other Marvel movies, “Avengers: Endgame” opened with a Marvel intro. However, it was modified to pay tribute to Stan Lee. Creators replaced all the usual MCU characters with Lee’s cameos from over the years. The piece ends with a simple ‘Thank you, Stan.”

Feige said that after Sand Lee passed, they were thinking if they should make a tribute to him or share something online. That’s when they realized that there is no better way to honor him but through movies, which they always did when he was still alive.

He shared:

I would want something sort of touching and rousing up front, as opposed to sort of depressing at the end.”
