X-Men: Dark Phoenix doesn’t feature a Stan Lee cameo, but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse does

The pop culture world suffered some devastating news this week with the passing of Marvel legend Stan Lee. The comic book icon will of course be a huge miss, not least to fans who’ve enjoyed his many cameos across Marvel’s film and television adaptations.

In the wake of his passing, it was confirmed by Marvel studios that Lee had already shot several cameos for future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, including Captain Marvel and Avengers 4, but now comes word that he’ll be absent from next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Although he’s been an ever-present in the McU, Lee had only featured in three of the previous X-Men films (not including his two Deadpool appearances) and Entertainment Weekly believes that a cameo in X-Men: Dark Phoenix was never intended, given that Fox and director Simon Kinberg are hoping to deliver a more grounded and gritty take on the franchise.
