Stan Lee got himself an ‘AGENTS OF SHIELD’ appearance.

Stan Lee.

Stanley Lee has been in every single Marvel movie to date. Is that right? *Fact-checkers I’ve imagined nod at me* Okay cool. However all of those appearances are limited pretty much to a cameo. So you’d be comfortable assuming his gig on Agents of SHIELD would be the same sort of flavor. But you’d be wrong, bro! Wrong!

Stan Lee has made an appearance in every Marvel Studios film to date, but it’s usually limited to a single line or shot. That may change soon as The Hollywood Reporter states that Lee is set to appear in an upcoming episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” portraying a “big role.” While there is currently no set date for the episode, THR said it would “most likely” air February 4 — though it’s not set in stone.

Lee’s most recent Marvel Cinematic Universe cameo was as a mental institution patient in “Thor: The Dark World,” who asked for his shoe back from Dr. Erik Selvig. Should THR’s report prove true, it seems Lee’s role will consist of more than just a cameo, though more will likely be revealed as the series begins its return to the airwaves this week.

Lee’s cameos are now expected by fans in MCU films, and bringing him on for a larger role in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” seems like a no-brainer. That said, if Lee’s role is actually big, will his character start to recur or appear in the films? Only time will tell, but there’s certainly time left in the season for Lee’s character to appear again.
