Dark Phoenix Has a Stan Lee Tribute Instead of a Cameo
Stan Lee died in mid-November of last year, but his legacy persists on all Marvel films. Also, let's not forget the man-killer cameos that posthumously continued in such films as Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse . But it seems that Lee will not have a cameo in director Simon Kinberg's next film X-men Dark Phoenix . That said, Kinberg recently made it known to everyone that there would be a tribute to Lee (and, hopefully, to Jack Kirby too) in the film.
Simon Kinberg says it precisely about Stan Lee.
"We do not have a cameo, I would rather say that rather than keep it mysterious, out of respect for Stan, we pay tribute to him, and that's something we obviously did not think about. when we were doing the movie because he was still alive.And he played such an important role in making these movies over the years.He had cameos, he had contributed to their creative process.
Simon Kinberg Continues

"I spent a lot of time with him.I had the chance to spend a lot of time with him.We went home to make his appearance in Revelation, with him and his wife – which was really special because he was with his wife, they were so close and they were together, I think, most of their adult life. "
And finally, he add this.
"[Stan Lee’s death] was something that we all feel now, and we felt when we were in post-production on this film, so it looked like a special X-Men movie, because it is the culmination of all these films in many ways, and because Dark Phoenix is the ultimate X- Men run .. But I think even more, the death of Stan Lee gives even more weight to this film for us, because X-Men, for me, and for many fans, and for some to Stan, was somehow his ultimate achievement. .
