As Avengers: Infinity War sees a number of the stars reprise their roles for the ensemble blockbuster ahead of a 2018 release, Stan Lee was on hand to have his cameo ready. The Marvel creator has made it his trademark to appear in all of the motion pictures in one form or another, from his work as a late night DJ at a stripper club in Deadpool to a courier delivery driver in Captain America: Civil War. If there is a Marvel movie, you will see Stan Lee crop up at some point.
This time it is alongside Karen Gillian's blue beauty Nebula, as the pair stopped for a photo on the set this week. The actress has been accustomed to staying inside the makeup truck as she transitions from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to this extravaganza that will be pulling out all the stops. Little is known about her part in the movie, but being the daughter of the antagonist of the piece in Thanos, it should not be that maligned.
From Aliens to Guardians: Widow Won't Be Wooed By New Additions to MCU
Appearing on MTV's Happy Sad Confused podcast during the week, Scarlett Johansson was quizzed about Avengers: Infinity War and what will be in store. Popping up as Black Widow once more, how will her character react to the emergence of Star-Lord, Drax and Baby Groot?
"Somebody said to me the other day, they were like, 'Is Black Widow ready for the Guardians of the Galaxy?' The last time aliens descended on New York I think my character was like, 'Alright, I've seen it all. I'm good.' So I don't even think like a talking tree will faze her at this point."
Feige's Cameo That Never Was
Coming up the Marvel ranks as one of the bigger players in the studio, Kevin Feige was prepping for a part in 2000's X-Men. Speaking with hosts Leonard and Jessie on Nerdist's Matlin on Movies podcast, the producer opened up about being camera shy and what part he would have played in the inaugural live-action version.
"The only reason I did it is because I was completely covered," he recalled. "I was a Weapon X tech pulling Wolverine's claws out of the oven. But I had a hood and mask... gloves. Every inch of me was covered."
Working as an associate producer behind director Bryan Singer back then, the idea would eventually be scrapped.
