Stan Lee Cameo in CAPTAIN MARVEL = Backstory of Cosmic Proportions [cameos & easter eggs]

Yes, Stan Lee does make a cameo appearance. It is perfectly appropriate given CAPTAIN MARVEL in set in the 90s, but unlike his other cameo appearances, this one is also an easter-egg with a backstory that alludes to one cosmic implication in the MCU.

Capt. Marvel passes Stan Lee on a train reciting lines from a script titled MALLRATS, a movie that came out in 1995 that Stan Lee made a cameo appearance in, as himself.

Here is the thing, in his MALLRATS scene, Stan Lee as Stan Lee mentions that he is the guy responsible for creating Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk, which begs the question; how can these fictional characters exist in The Marvel Cinematic Universe?!

It is a rhetorical question because no one should really care about this sort of stuff. It’s just a neat, meta nod of a terrific cameo, about a cameo, within a cameo — watch it here:

Totally gives credence to the theories surrounding his appearance in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 as a Watcher informer.

At the press conference for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 , Marvel boss Kevin Feige was asked what the cameo meant;

“Stan Lee clearly exists above and apart from the reality of all the films.” He added the cameo proved, “he’s this same character who’s popped up in all these films, the same person.”

What better tribute to the comics legend than this theory being true.
