Robert Downey Jr. Recalls The Last Time He Worked With Stan Lee On CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

During Stan Lee's long, eventful life, he made several cameos in the films that were adapted from his work. One of the most popular is from Captain America: Civil War, and now RDJ discusses his scenes...

During  the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Infinity Saga, which consists of the first three phases (23 movies), the late Stan Lee crossed paths with Tony Stark more than once, but arguably the most memorable moment the two shared was the 'Tony Stank' scene in Captain America: Civil War.

The scene serves as a bit of much needed humor after a very tense and emotional climax between Tony and Steve, and it also saw Stan deliver one of his funniest lines to date.

During his appearance on the Howard Stern Show, Robert Downey Jr. opened up about working with the legendary Lee.

One of the last times I saw him, we were shooting Civil War. And in his cameo that day was he's, I think a UPS delivery man, and he had a great line. He goes, 'I have a package for Tony Stank.'

RDJ goes on to discuss the scene in more detail, talking about how Lee would go so far as to confuse him for Iron Man!

That was one of the last times I saw him, and the crazy thing was -- he said that on the first take, he nailed it -- then they go, 'Alright, resetting, let's do it again.' And after that, he started saying, 'I have a package for Robert, uhh...' And I said, 'Oh my god its wild, even the guy who created the character thinks of me in a moment where he's talking about the character... This is so meta. Stan Lee is forgetting who I am in this moment.
