You know the drill by now. At some point in every Marvel movie, an elderly gentleman with a familiar face will arrive on screen. Sometimes he’ll literally just walk through the frame. Other times, he’ll be involved in some kind of sight gag. If the filmmakers are feeling really confident, they may even give him a quick line or two, something that can make use of his innate but specific charisma because he’s not a real actor. And then the audience will chuckle (there may be a smattering of applause if it’s opening night) because they recognized Stan Lee. It’s a tradition.
So yeah, of course Netflix’s upcoming The Defenders series will feature a cameo from Marvel’s mighty mustached mascot. And if you’d like to know the specifics and don’t mind the surprise being ruined, you can check that out below.
