This is going to make us cry.April 22, 2019
Entertainment Weekly reports that the company has comprised all the videos of Lee’s cameos and is planning to release it. They also say it could possibly come as an extra for Avengers: Endgame DVD release.
“We’ve put a video together,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told EW. “We’ve never done this before, a behind-the-scenes of every cameo. All the B-roll that was shot and his stand-ups there. His passing was very emotional for all of us, but it suddenly all came back to me just when I watched it.”
Lee died last year at age 95. He was a writer, editor and publishers of Marvel Comics and created several well-known titles. Those include Black Panther, Spider-Man, X-Men, The Mighty Thor, Iron Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Daredevil and Ant-Man.

Lee’s final cameo will be in the highly-anticipated Avengers: Endgame, out this Friday. In anticipation for the big debut, some theaters have had to open 24 hours a day from this Thursday to Sunday to meet high demands.
There is no denying the film is going to be a huge success. It already has broken major records in ticket sales ahead of its release.
For one, it’s selling five times as many tickets as Infinity War during its first week of presales. This should come as no surprise with the demand of tickets being crazy enough for fans to spend upward of $15,000 for a pair.
Also, the film has broken the record for Atom Tickets’ best-selling movie of all time in only 10 days.
Currently the Marvel movie is estimated to open between $230 million to $283 million domestically. Also, it has a worldwide projection of an astounding $800 million.
It was previously announced that Endgame would close out Phase 3 of the MCU. However, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed he now has other plans.
In other news, Twitter users were recently granted tons of emojis of nearly all the characters in the film.
While you’re online playing with all the new MCU emojis, be careful to avoid possible spoilers as footage from the film is reportedly leaked and available online.
Also, one major revelation about who Hawkeye was training in archery in one of the trailers has finally been revealed.
We’re only four days away from the release of one of the most highly anticipated films in MCU history. Yesterday, the franchise released a new teaser that gave us a first look at Valkyrie.
You can check that out below.
If you’re a die-hard MCU fan, you can snag a Marvel Movie Marathon ticket from AMC. The chain confirmed they would be showing a 59-hour marathon of all 22 Marvel films leading up to Endgame at select theaters this week.
