Marvel Studios, however, has compiled a behind-the-scenes video that shows how Lee’s cameos were made so that fans can watch Lee’s iconic moments over and over again.
“We’ve put a video together,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told Entertainment Weekly during a roundtable interview with the six original Avengers. “We’ve never done this before, a behind-the-scenes of every cameo. All the B-roll that was shot and his stand-ups there.”
Feige said Lee’s passing in November 2018 “was very emotional for all of us, but it suddenly all came back to me just when I watched it.”
According to EW, footage for the video dates back to “Iron Man” in 2008. It will also include footage from “the deleted cameo, the first cameo (Lee) did on Avengers, when you two were in the cafe outside,” Feige said, referring to Chris Evans as Captain America.Comment on this story
The video may be released as an extra when “Avengers: Endgame” is released for at-home viewing.
Feige shared a little bit more about what Lee meant to him in the interview with EW.
“He left me a voicemail once, in 2004 or something,” he recalled. “I’d never gotten a voicemail from Stan Lee, and I kept it for years until I think the phone disintegrated. But it was: ‘Fearless Feige! Stan Lee here….’ I listened to it over and over and over. That’s what he was always like — always supportive.”
