It took me over a week but I was able to finally lock down my favorite top 10 Stan Lee cameos, is there one I missed if so comment below?
Ten – The Winter Soldier
This is a simple one, it just made me have a little chuckle, the fact that Captain America broke in to his own exhibit and stole his own uniform, you wonder what would happen to that security guard. It is not the most special cameo but it is one of my fav’s.
Nine – Big Hero Six
This one just came as a little surprise, sure it was a Marvel film but I honestly did not see this cameo coming, though it did give us:
Fred: Dad, I just wish I could share my accomplishments with you. You mean so much to me and, honestly I’ve always felt a distance, what with you being on the family island all the time and I just wish you could see how-
[Fred touches the portrait and it opens, revealing a secret room. Inside is a large computer console, two sets of superhero costumes and a plethora of different gadgets. Fred enters the room and looks around. He picks up a pair of underwear]
Fred’s Dad: Fred.
[Fred’s Dad enters the room to reveal that he is none other than Stan “The Man” Lee]
Fred’s Dad: Son.
Fred’s Dad: [He picks up the underwear and holds them proudly] I wear ’em front. I wear ’em back.
Fred, Fred’s Dad: [Fred joins in] I go inside out. Then I go front and back.
[Fred hugs his father happily]
Fred’s Dad: We have a *lot* to talk about!
Eight – Teen Titans Go! To The Movies
Again this is a complete surprise, after all it’s a DC film, but Stan Lee knows how to poke fun at himself and this cameo proves it.
Seven – Deadpool
The first three have been very tame and family friendly, this one in typical Deadpool fashion goes a completely different route. Here we have Stan Lee as a DJ in a strip club. We all knew the cameo was coming, after all the opening credits announced it, but still when I saw this I bust a gut laughing.
Not only was the concept funny, but his lines where brilliant:
Strip Club DJ : You can’t buy love, but you can rent it for three minutes!
Strip Club DJ : Hey. Coming on to our stage right now… give it up for Chastity!
Weasel : Or as I like to call her… Irony.
