Many also remember him for his cameos in movies such as 'Spider-Man: Homecoming', 'Iron Man' and 'Thor'.


"We love Stan Lee and I think it's incredibly special that '...Endgame' will be his final cameo. We are fascinated by the life of Stan Lee and we are actually developing a little something that has to do with his work in the history of Marvel," Anthony told IANS here.

"But we are not ready to present it or talk about it yet. It's more of a documentary," he added.
