Stan Lee Cameo In Doctor Strange Revealed


Warning! Major spoiler for Doctor Strange follows!

On Monday night, Marvel unveiled 15 minutes of the next installment of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Doctor Strange.

The IMAX footage showed off not only the incredible and trippy visual effects which will be packed into the Scott Derrickson directed film but also revealed several spoilers for the film, including a Dormammu reference shown off via the symbol of Dormammu appearing in a book and through flames Kaecilius created using magic. However, the biggest reveal was Stan Lee's cameo.

In what looks like one of the most epic foot chases in cinematic history, Doctor Strange and Mordo are running down streets, up building sides, and across the sky as the world warps around them. After Kaecilius bends the building on which Mordo and Strange are running, they fall to the ground and into the side of a bus. As they fall, the camera angle switches to a point of view from inside the bus, revealing Stan Lee reading Aldous Huxley's The Doors of Perception.

As Strange and Mordo smash into the bus' window, Lee bursts out saying, "Now, that's hilarious!" until the camera swaps again and the chase continues.

There is always the possibility of Lee's cameo being extended from the few seconds he appeared during the 15-minute preview.

Other cameos in Marvel films a bus driver in Spider-Man, a FedEx delivery guy in Captain America: Civil War, and a strip club M.C. in Deadpool.
