Stan Lee Cameos

One of the fun things to look out for when watching a movie based on Marvel superheroes, is for the appearance of the grand-daddy creator of almost all the characters which have been given new life on the celluloid screen in recent years. At first it seemed only DC had the formula right for churning out blockbusters based on their flagship characters of Superman and Batman, though now Marvel slowly but surely, are also starting to find their feet.

I can't help but be amazed by the brilliance of Stan Lee in creating so many characters which have endeared and endured to this day, most of whom have been created since the 60s. And it was almost a no-brainer for the filmmakers too in trying to incorporate simple, cameo appearances by the Stan the man himself, from X-Men to Iron Man, Spider-Man to Hulk, he's been a gatecrasher, a postman, a building guard, many times passers-by, and even dispensed sound advice to our friendly neighbourhood web-crawler.

So without further ado, here's a clip that someone did, splicing together Stan's appearance in the many Marvel movies he has appeared in. Enjoy!
