Graphic Novel/Comic


X-Men creator Stan Lee as a hot dog vendor when newly created mutant Senator Kelly (Bruce Davison) emerges from the ocean in X-MEN (2000).


Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee had two cameos in SPIDERMAN (2002), but one was cut. In the deleted one, he asks Peter, “Hey kid, would you like a pair of these glasses? They’re the kind they wore in X-Men.” Lee only briefly appears in the film to grab a young girl from falling debris during the battle between Spider-Man and the Green Goblin in Times Square.
Interesting observation: the shirt Lee is wearing is Spiderman’s blue & red.


HULK (2003) was the disappointing Ang Lee directed Eric Bana/Jennifer Connelly film that has since been rebooted with Ed Norton/Mark Ruffalo (THE INCREDIBLE HULK & THE AVENGERS). Hulk creator Stan Lee and original Hulk Lou Ferrigino pop up as security guards saying hi to a young David Banner (Eric Bana).


Chances are if you watch a film based on a Marvel comic book character, you will catch Stan Lee in a cameo. Here he is in a few seconds of screen time just before he saves a girl from falling debris during a battle between Spiderman and Dr. Otto Octavius in SPIDERMAN 2 (2004). Stan Lee created Spiderman over 50 years ago.


Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee has a cameo in SPIDERMAN 3 (2007), as he did in the previous Spider-Man films, which he referred to as his “best cameo”.

Iron Man2

Hulk co-creator Stan Lee cameos as a man who becomes ill when drinking the soda poisoned by Banner’s blood in THE INCREDIBLE HULK (2008).


In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011), Stan Lee is a U.S General a bit surprised at the height of the super hero.


In THOR (2011), Stan Lee attempts to remove the mysterious sledge hammer from outer space with his pickup truck.


THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN (2011) is an animated film based on a series of comics by Belgian writer & artist Georges Prosper Remi, also known as Hergé. As a tribute to the writer/artist, who passed away in 1983, director Steven Spielberg & co-producer Peter Jackson had him make a “cameo” in the opening shots as a street artist sketching a portrait of the films Tintin in the same style as his classic comics.


Comic writer extraordinaire Stan Lee appears briefly at the end of THE AVENGERS (2012) during the celebration montage, delivering the line “Superheroes in New York? Give me a break.”


Spiderman creator Stan Lee plays a librarian listening to music on his headphones while stamping books, oblivious to the ongoing battle between Spiderman & The Lizard in THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN (2012)
