Stan Lee, the legendary comic book icon, has passed away last year, but the man has had a lasting impact on many fans out there. After all, he was the co-creator of popular characters like Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, The Hulk, Black Panther, Iron Man, Daredevil, and Thor. Fans were able to see him in many of the live-action Marvel films in special cameos. But with the upcoming Captain Marvel film, it has something very special for fans. Critics have been praising Captain Marvel on Twitter, and a journalist has mentioned that the film opens with a touching tribute to Stan Lee.

According to writer Anna Klassen, Captain Marvel will open with a “very touching Stan Lee tribute.” She added that it’ll be something “Marvel fans will love.”

It’s still not revealed yet whether he’ll have a cameo in Captain Marvel, but fans can expect to see another cameo in Avengers: Endgame. The latter and Avengers: Infinity War were filmed back to back, so the directors, the Russo brothers, were able to bring him on board before his passing.

It’s nice to know that Marvel Studios is dedicating a few minutes before Captain Marvel to honor Stan “The Man” Lee.

Synopsis: The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and written by Boden, Fleck, Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Jac Schaeffer from a story by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Joe Shrapnel, and Anna Waterhouse. It stars Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Lee Pace as Ronan, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Algenis Perez Soto as Att-Lass, Rune Temte as Bron-Char, McKenna Grace as young Carol Danvers, Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson and Jude Law as the Starforce Commander.

Captain Marvel flies into theaters on March 8, 2019.
