Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Pens An Emotional Tribute To Stan Lee And Details Their Final Meeting

In a touching tribute to the late Stan "The Man" Lee, Kevin Feige has talked in detail about his final meeting with the comic creator, saying that "he was slightly more wistful than I’d seen him before."

Stan Lee's passing has left his fans reeling and many notable characters have come forward in recent weeks to pay tribute to the man who helped create characters like Spider-Man, the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Avengers. 

Now, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has penned an emotional tribute to Lee which has been shared by Entertainment Weekly. I strongly recommend that you head on over to the site to take a look but below, you'll find an excerpt in which the Avengers: Infinity War producer talks about his final meeting with Lee just weeks before he passed away.


Some of his lessons are unspoken. He didn’t come to set and read the scripts and review the cuts. He came in, did a cameo that excited everybody, and would let his work speak for itself. He was very nice in my interactions with him, including what ended up being my final conversation with him about two weeks before he died. I went to his house to see him, and he reminisced about the cameos. We were talking about what was coming up, always looking to the future.
 
Did he know that his time was running out? I don’t know. In hindsight, he was slightly more wistful than I’d seen him before. He talked about the past more than I had ever heard him talk about the past. So maybe on some level, he knew. When I sat down by his chair in our last meeting, the very first thing he said was: “I know you want me to star in the next movie, but I have to just stick to the cameos. You’ll have to leave the starring roles to the other actors. I’m sorry.”
 
He would show up to the movie sets game for anything. But one thing he would always do is try to add more lines. He always would joke — but not really joke — about wanting more lines, although he understood why we couldn’t. God forbid he would start to overshadow the hero. That was something a character like Stan Lee could easily do.

Lee won't make a cameo appearance in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but he'll presumably show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the last time in either Avengers 4 or Spider-Man: Far From Home (Black Widow and The Eternals haven't started production so he won't have shot anything for them).
