The 'What Will You Watch to Rememer Stan Lee & co.' Thread

His first big success for his characters on film, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. That's when Marvel truly made it on the big screen.

I also will likely watch some of his appearances on Super Hero Squad Show where he plays the Mayor.
 
First, great idea for a thread, big props to the OP.

This is tough. I'm watching Civil War right now. Really it's when I read classic comics that I think of Stan Lee.

Still, can't possibly begin to describe the impact of Stan Lee in my life, as a comic fan since I was 10.

I don't feel sad though, he had a life well lived and will never be forgotten - every time I see a kid with a Spider Man backpack I will think of him.
 
For me this weekend, it will be Avengers: Infinity War. Why? Because Stan Lee created a fair share of the Marvel Universe. IW and A4 are in part celebrations of that legacy and bring all the characters together. I want to sit and not Marvel at any single thing he created, I want the best example of his enduring legacy. So for me, that will be IW.

I'll be doing the same with the exact same sentiments. :up:

Thanks v much, I thought it would be on people's minds and so rather than the multi-conventional 'tribute' threads up and running, do it this way.

Mine will be a DVD interview I have with SL & Kevin Smith, runs for about 90 minutes and goes into great length on how they all set up and the world, characters and was made just as the first Raimi Spider-Man film was released so has that lovely 'before the explosion' feel to it.

Something Spider-Man related. It's his single most popular character, and maybe the one that was closest to him.
 
I had planned to watch Infinity War last night anyway, but watching it after hearing the news was pretty poignant.

Definitely Raimi’s first Spider-Man, as that’s the movie that introduced me to the Marvel world, and Infinity War, as it’s a celebration of so many characters he had a hand in creating and shaping.

Might then watch some random films that contain my favorite cameos, like SM3, TASM, GOTG2, the last episode of the 90’s Spider-Man animated series, some Super Hero Squad, and maybe try and sit through some Ultimate Spider-Man.

I like this show, and still think you shouldn't put yourself through so much cringe.
 
So is it likely that Stan's final cameo is in Avengers 4? I guess the X-films that are on the shelf probably have cameos and will be released after, but it will at least be fitting if the last showing in the MCU is in the big culmination of the decade long story.

The MCU is supposed to change afterwards and since we cannot have Stan cameos forever it will feel like an appropriate place to say goodbye to him in that forum.
 
Probably won’t watch anything but will go digging through my storage to find and read this comic that was included with X3 that Stan wrote.

He might have filmed a cameo for Far From Home but since we don’t really have a solid release schedule for anything after that I’d say that might have been his last one. It would really fit if Stan Lee’s final cameo was in a movie starring his most famous co-creation.
 
No point to remember him. He is not anything special. I enjoy marvel characters but he isn't the only person who made them, he is a writer and face only. Any praise to the other true creators? He is gone so move on already I say. More important things in life. No cameos of him after last ones I say thank god there won't be any more. I enjoy marvel movies not because of him but because I love comic heroes.

I do say in the thread title & description, this is a dedication to all the Marvel 'band', like you, I have very 'mixed' feelings about Lee, and one of the reasons why I name check Kirby, Ditko & co in the description, Lee was a case of last man standing and for years took much credit for others' work, which was plainly not right. Believe me, I stand with you on not 'hailing' him as a Human God, but he was part of a collective who changed comic book history.
 
The week he passed I watched first two Spider-Man movies, then F4 Rise of Silver Surfer (yeah, but its cool to hear Stan refer to his own name)

Since then I've been rewatching the MCU...just finished Age of Ultron.
