UNITED STATES: Stan Lee, the legend who crafted the co-creation of Spider-Man, Avengers, and Hulk, which breathed life to the 2D characters functioning as the soul, is returning to Marvel Studios with an ultimate deal.
Stan Lee is regarded as the Marvel Studios’ Godfather. Any Marvel Fan can hardly miss his memorable cameos. His adventure has come to an end with his demise in 2018. The legend who was once the beating heart of Marvel and the creative force behind Spider-Man was no longer with us. Stan Lee himself can replace the void left by his absence; only he can make our Marvel adventure memorable.
Lee’s cameo comeback fills the void in the MCU
Lacking Stan Lee’s cameo, MCU’s phase four felt hollow. Marvel struck a 20-year partnership with Stan Lee universe, a joint venture between Genius Brands International and POW! Entertainment to resurrect the legend’s aura. This agreement allows Disney to employ Lee’s name and appearance in forthcoming feature films and television productions and Disney theme parks, other “interactions,” and memorabilia.
“It really ensures that Stan, through digital technology and archival footage and other forms, will live in the most important venue, the Marvel movies and Disney theme parks,” Andy Heyward, chairman and CEO of Genius Brands, remarked, “It’s a broad deal.”
Cameos in earlier films, particularly from the creators, were not given much weight. As a result, we might claim that Stan Lee’s involvement in the Marvel films popularised the cameo era. Lee catapulted into the modern media limelight in the 21st century, appearing in Marvel-based interpretations like Fox’s X-Men and Sony’s Spider-Man trilogy. After that, he extends his ever-growing number of cameos with the commencement of the Marvel Studios featuring Iron Man.
Stan Lee’s impact on the comic book industry
Everything that begins comes to an end. Similarly, the journey of a legend concluded with his final appearance in Avengers: End Game. His demise had a profound impression on the comic book community; even those who had never read a Marvel comic book could relate to him. Some even saw him as an inspiration, resulting in an ode to the comic book king.
Along with the pros of Lee’s cameo comeback, it may also have drawbacks. Fans saw Carrie Fisher’s appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as an unhinging experiment of poorly constructed CGI.
