Captain Marvel had been mired in the cesspool of Internet trolls almost since go. With Brie Larson’s advocacy for diversity in film and in the journalists who see her film, the backlash only grew stronger. But in spite of it, Captain Marvel has debuted to a strong 82 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, indicating a flurry of positive reviews.
Does Stan Lee cameo in Captain Marvel?
Warning: spoilers ahead.
Rest assured Marvel fans, Stan Lee does have a cameo in Captain Marvel.
The Marvel creator was known for shooting multiple cameos in one go.
Many assumed Venom would be his last, as it was the last film to come out in cinemas prior to his death.
However, at the time he had already filmed multiple cameos for upcoming Marvel movies.
CAPTAIN MARVEL: HOW POWERFUL IS CAPTAIN MARVEL?
Where does Stan Lee appear?
The scene is one fans who watched the trailer will recognise in part.
Towards the beginning of the film, Captain Marvel crash lands on Earth.
She discovers the Skrull, her presumed enemy, have already infiltrated the planet.
As she chases a Skrull down, they wind up on an overground train circling the city.
CAPTAIN MARVEL AGE RATING: HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO SEE IT?
Captain Marvel walks through the carriage, eying each passenger carefully as, after all, Skrull are shapeshifters – down to a DNA level.
She sees a man reading a script entitled Mallrats (a real-life movie by Kevin Smith).
She carefully pulls down the script to examine his face.
Behind the pages is none other than Stan Lee, who gives her a smile.

Captain Marvel gives him a nod, as if she knows him, and continues down the carriage.
Stan Lee’s multiple cameos have lead to a widely-considered-true theory that Lee embodies the character of a Watcher.
The Watchers are an invention of Lee’s, and their purpose is to watch over the multiverses of the Marvel series, so Lee’s cameo in Venom is canonically supported.
During his cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Lee is seen as an astronaut regaling The Watchers with tales of his various cameos throughout the MCU.
It is assumed Lee has already filmed cameos for the upcoming Marvel movies Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man Far From Home and X-Men Dark Phoenix.
Captain Marvel is now playing in cinemas.
