Stan Lee’s Secret Cameo In The Wolverine Revealed

by Scott Johnson

The Wolverine Stan Lee CameoWhen Stan Lee appeared at Fandomfest this past weekend, reported on his explanation for his lack of a cameo in The Wolverine. Stan Lee said, “I didn’t have a cameo in Wolverine. I apologize. I know you’ll be heartbroken, but they filmed it in Australia, and I just didn’t have time to go there, so I missed out on that one. The movie will probably be a dud [joking].”

While Stan Lee might not have appeared in the flesh in a cameo in The Wolverine, he did appear in spirit. And we really do mean in a spirit, because one of our readers pointed out that there was a special nod given to Stan Lee on a bottle of whiskey. In one of the snowy forest scenes, Hugh Jackman’s character Wolverine was shown with a bottle of Stanley’s whiskey, which is almost certainly a call-out to Marvel legend Stan Lee.

So while Stan Lee himself might not have even been aware of his cameo, it turns out that he did have a secret cameo of sorts.
