Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
The cameo: Stan appears as a security guard again, this time at the Smithsonian Institute.
Is Stan the man? Captain America steals his suit from an exhibition at the Smithsonian right under Stan's nose. As he walks past the exhibit where the suit should be he looks up and remarks, "Oh man, I am so fired." Stan has said that Captain America is a real sentimental favourite of his being one of the first characters he wrote when he joined Marvel.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
The cameo: Stan is amongst the crowd at Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy's graduation.
Is Stan the man? As Peter Parker slings his way in as Spider-man, he almost forgets to take his mask off. We cut to Stan who's caught him mid-change, pointing out, "I think I know that guy." Stan has said he's not easy to please but that Andrew Garfield did a great job with the character.
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
The cameo: Rocket views Stan through his scanning device as Stan is having a conversation with a younger woman.
Is Stan the man? Stan Lee is quite the Xandarian ladies man, as he looks quite comfortable chatting up a young woman in this scene. Rocket spies on him for a while and remarks, "What a class-A pervert!" However, there are quite a few other cameos in Guardians you may not have spotted. Director James Gunn plays a Sakaaran, Rob Zombie is the voice of the Ravager Navigator and Seth Green is the voice of Howard The Duck. Stan was originally penned to appear in one of the Collector's cells, giving Groot a rude gesture, but unfortunately the scene was never filmed.
Big Hero 6 (2014)
The cameo: Stan plays Fred's Father.
Is Stan the man? Big Hero 6 is a Disney superhero film inspired by a Marvel superhero team of the same name, so it made sense to have Stan cameo in the film. In an interview Stan said that while growing up Disney was his world, and he was chuffed to be involved in a Disney film inspired by what they did at Marvel comics. Stan appears in a family portrait in the movie, and there's also a post-credits scene where he appears to Fred: We have a lot to talk about.
Marvel's Agent Carter (2015)
The cameo: In the fourth episode of season 1, The Blitzkrieg Button, Howard Stark settles in for a read of the paper while he gets his shoes shined. Who's sat beside him? You guessed it.
Is Stan the man? As Stark hangs his head, hoping for a moment's peace (he's a bit beat up, see) while his loafers get polished, Stan takes a seat, masking his face with a newspaper. "Could I borrow the sports section?" he asks, lowering the paper. Who wouldn't give that happy chap the sports?
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
The cameo: Stan plays an old time war veteran having a few drinks with the Avengers at their victory party.
Is Stan the man? As Thor explains that Asgardian liquor is not made for mortal men, Stan goads Thor (or blondie if you prefer) into letting him have a taste since he fought at Omaha Beach. Thor agrees and we cut to a scene with Lee being escorted from the party, drunkenly muttering Excelsior!
The cameo: A cunning one, this: Stan's photograph appears on the back wall of the NYPD 15th precinct in season 1, episode 13.
Is Stan the man? Even the seemingly low-key cameos from Stan will be spotted by eagle-eyed viewers, this one proving that he doesn't need to be live-action, animated or even have a line! As Matt's work takes him to the police department you can see Stan's framed image hanging on the back wall. A memorial plaque, by the looks of it. This is one of Lee's more subtle cameos that started something of a trend...
The cameo: Dressed to the nines, Stan pops up briefly as a bartender during a flashback.
Is Stan the man? Just when you were thinking he wouldn't have an appearance in the coolest heist flick this side of Ocean's Eleven, there he was! Possibly the funniest cameo of his, on account of the overdubbing, he pops up during Luis' lengthy cutaway as he's discussing his friend Pablo meeting a girl at a bar: “And he goes up to the bartender and goes, ‘Look at the girl I’m with, you know what I’m saying? She’s crazy super fine, right?'” says Luis, “And the bartender is all like, ‘Yeah. Crazy stupid fine.”
Jessica Jones (2015)
The cameo: The very same framed image of Stan from Daredevil appears once more.
Is Stan the man? One of the series' most tense moments, when Kilgrave takes control of an entire police precinct, is where Stan's pic appears. It's actually the same snap we see in Daredevil, except this time it's been moved to a different location in the precinct. As if we needed more evidence that Jessica Jones takes place in the same world as Daredevil!
The cameo: Reportedly his favourite Marvel cameo to date, Stan appears as an MC in the nightclub where Vanessa works.
Is Stan the man? After Wade escapes the hideous Weapon X program, he decides to locate his ex, Vanessa. Eventually tracking her to a new place of employment - a strip club - Deadpool scours the venue, where he discovers a hip and happening old timer in the DJ booth. Fitting in completely with the Deadpool-world, Stan's stint here is absolutely spot-on.
