Kevin Feige's final conversation with Stan Lee was a bit different from the previous ones; however, the president of Marvel Studios admits that he did not notice the subtle change until after Lee's death 11 days ago.
"He was very nice in my interactions with him, including what ended up being my last conversation with him about two weeks before his death," Feige recalled in a recently published essay Entertainment Weekly. "[…] Did you know that your time was running out? I do not know. In retrospect, I was a little more melancholy than I had seen it before. He talked about the past more than he had heard about the past. So maybe on some level, I knew it. "
So, what did the two discuss during their last meeting? Past and next MCU Lee's cameos.
With each Marvel movie that premieres, fans can count on a brief, but special, appearance of the comic book legend. Feige said that Lee always had a good attitude towards cameos and, in fact, often asked for more important roles; However, Feige noted that these requests were made in jest, more or less.
"When I sat next to his chair at our last meeting, the first thing he said was:" I know you want me to star in the next movie, but I have to stick to the cameos. "You'll have to leave The leading roles of the other actors I'm sorry, "wrote the head of the study. "He would introduce himself to the game of movies for anything, but one thing he would always do is try to add more lines." He always joked, but he did not. Really Joke: about wanting more lines, although he understood why we could not. "
