Avengers: Endgame marks the end of an era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe that began in 2008 with Iron Man . But Stan Lee 's Passion in 201
Before Stan Lee died in November of last year, he shot several cameos that would keep the comic titan alive long after his death. But only Avengers: Endgame would keep him forever young.
Lee appears during the sequence in the 1970's S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters where Tony Stark ( Robert Downey Jr. ) and Steve Rogers ( Chris Evans ) have arrived in the middle of their time to have another chance to seize the Tesseract. While trying not to get caught, Lee zooms past in a white muscle car with a pretty lady at her side and a groovy bumper sticker on the back with the inscription: "Nuff said Marvel Comics.
It's a fun and happy cameo, complete with Steppenwolf's "Hey Lawdy Mama" and a de-aging effect that brings Lee back to his 70s appearance. "It seemed like fun when we originally had the idea before Stan died," Joe Russo told Entertainment Weekly. "Oh, how did Stan look in the 70s?" Fortunately, it was not too difficult for the Russo brothers with Lee's magnificent mustache and flowing hair to group him as a free-loving hippie, added Russo:
"It's a kind of hippie era, and Stan comes in as a hippie and it is the time of free love. He says, "Make love, not war!" Although Lee is now known as a lovable white-haired man, there's no time to spot Lee among the shiny aging phenomena that have improved enormously since Marvel was first tested in Ant-Man . Lee certainly looks like himself and has a great time with it. It gives the cameo a sweet finality that still shocks Joe and Anthony when they were seen in their movie.
"It's the last Stan Lee cameo to make the movie," Joe told EW.
