  • Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige wrote a tribute to Stan
    Lee for Entertainment Weekly this week.
  • Feige described his final meeting with Lee, in which the two
    reminisced about Lee’s cameos in Marvel movies.
  • “He talked about the past more than I had ever heard him
    talk about the past,” Feige wrote. “So maybe on some level, he
    knew.”
  • Feige also said that Lee always joked about needing more
    lines in the movies. 

A modern Marvel titan shared a farewell to Marvel Comics legend
Stan Lee this week.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who oversees the Marvel
Cinematic Universe (MCU), wrote a tribute to Lee for
Entertainment Weekly, which can be found in the latest issue or
online now. Lee, the former
president of Marvel Comics who co-created Spider-Man, Black
Panther, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and
dozens of more characters, died earlier this month at 95.

Feige described his final meeting with Lee in his tribute, in
which the two reminisced about Lee’s cameos in Marvel movies.

Did he know that his time was running out? I don’t know,”
Feige wrote. “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.”

Lee has appeared in every MCU movie in a brief cameo, and nearly
all other Marvel movies, as well. He’ll appear in two more movies before
2018 is over
: Sony’s “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” next
month, and Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” which is in
theaters now. He had also already filmed his “Avengers 4” cameo
for next year.

Feige also said that Lee would always joke that he needed
more lines for a cameo whenever he was on the set of a
movie.

“He always would joke — but
not really joke — about wanting more lines,
although he understood why we couldn’t,” Feige wrote.

He concluded, “God forbid he would start to
overshadow the hero. That was something a character like Stan Lee
could easily do.”
