A Marvel movie, even one that is produced outside of Marvel Studios, just wouldn’t feel complete without a cameo from comic creator Stan Lee. He’s a good luck charm, and his appearance is expected in pretty much every Marvel movie (though he hasn’t actually appeared in all of them). And it turns out, Stan Lee may have recently filmed a cameo for a Marvel Studios project coming much further down the line.
Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan, who plays Gamora’s troublesome sister Nebula, recently posted a picture to Instagram featuring her standing on a studio backlot with none other than Stan Lee. Furthermore, Karen Gillan just so happens to be wearing her Nebula make-up. Since Avengers: Infinity War is currently shooting in Atlanta (as well as Edinburgh, Scotland), many have assumed that Stan Lee recently shot his Infinity War cameo, but we’re not so sure that’s the case.

It’s finally time for Logan to hit theaters, starting with sneak preview screenings tonight before playing everywhere tomorrow. Leading up to the release of the movie, there were rumors about a post-credits scene being included. That rumor seemed to be confirmed by an extension of the film’s running time by just a few minutes, and that was after it had already screened for press without and credits scenes present. But we learned that it would be something that played before the movie started instead of during or after the credits.
Now we have exclusively learned what the details of the secret teaser is that will be playing before Logan. If you want to avoid any spoilers for this secret Logan trailer, do not read after the jump. Read More »

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.
