Spoiler Warning: Now that Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been released in the U.S., we wanted to share details on Stan Lee’s cameo in the film. This article is for people who have already seen the film or just want to know in advance for when they should watch for Stan Lee’s cameo.
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Steve Rogers breaks into the Smithsonian to steal his World War II Captain America uniform. Unfortunately, for Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, he happens to be on duty as a security guard at the Smithsonian.
Security guard Stan Lee is making his rounds, when he walks by the Captain America exhibit. When he notices that one of the Captain America uniforms is missing, he stops dead in his tracks and his mouth drops open in shock. Stan Lee says, “I am so fired.” Then, the scene ends.
