Not since the days of Alfred Hitchcock has a screen icon’s quick and clever movie cameos been as celebrated as those of Marvel mastermind Stan Lee. Starting with a cameo in the 1989 TV movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk, Stan the Man has appeared in more than 20 cinematic adaptations of his comic books.
The 91-year-old even appeared in animated form in November’s Big Hero 6, and of course makes another splendid cameo in this weekend’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. And you can watch them all in our new supercut, above.
With Marvel announcing a whopping 10 new superhero movies as part of their “Phase 3” slate, all we’ve gotta say is: Long live Stan Lee. Excelsior!
