Captain Marvel has marked the very first MCU film since Stan Lee had passed away. Leading right up to Captain Marvel’s release, all the filmmakers were teasing a very touching tribute to Stan Lee.
MILD CAPTAIN MARVEL SPOILERS
Captain Marvel does not waste any time to show their love to Stan Lee, and it is the first thing we see when the movie starts. All fans are now familiar with the usual opening sequence, with the Marvel Studios (“Marvel Stud10s”) logo. Captain Marvel flips this around, and the Marvel Studios opening sequence is a dedication to all the Stan Lee cameo scenes. Once the Marvel Studios logo sequence is over, the screen goes black with the message,
“Thank you, Stan.”
This Stan Lee tribute had gotten a very emotional reaction from the audiences, and the footage from Lee’s MCU cameos reminds us what a fun and active role he had played in the MCU.
The Stan Lee tribute in Captain Marvel is not the end of Lee’s MCU appearances as he will get one more traditional cameo during the movie and also in Avengers: Endgame. This is crucial as the movie will end the first era of the MCU, and this will be a pretty fitting end to Stan Lee’s cameos in the MCU.
Avengers: Infinity War is now available on home video. Upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies include Captain Marvel on March 8th, Avengers: Endgame on April 26th, and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5th.
