The Guardians of Galaxy 2: What does Stan Lee’s Cameo mean?
Unlike usual, Stan Lee’s cameo of La Galaxie Vol 2 is probably far from trivial. But what could he mean?
To see a Marvel film, it is necessarily to expect some tasty cameos! And The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 obviously does not depart from the rule, slipping here and there a few surprises (hello again, Howard!). And then, of course, there is the eagerly awaited appearance of the great general Marvel, Stan Lee himself , without which the film would not have been complete. Besides, its sequence is not at all innocuous! Indeed, the post-generic scenes of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 have been much studied and what they meant for the rest of the MCU and for our heroes themselves. But we have not yet had the opportunity to decipher this strange cameo of Stan Lee and talk about these aliens a little weird with whom he trim the fat. Because imagine, meltynauts, that these characters occupy a special place in the comics Marvel ! And they could have a very special meaning in this scene.
Remember, we meet Stan Lee in The Keepers of the Galaxy Vol 2 at the bend of a planet so Rocket, Yondu, Kalgrin and Groot jump from one end of the galaxy to the other to find the world of Ego . The character of Stan Lee is then in great conversation with a group of aliens to which he tells his voyages. And fans of Marvel comics will certainly recognize them, especially thanks to their look so special! They are actually Guardians – or Watchers in original version – that are part of the oldest extraterrestrial races . And their mission is simple: observe the universe and compile all aspects and all events. To say that it is a sacred task! The Guardians were mentioned for the first time in the comics in 1963 in the series ”
To find out, you have to take ALL of Stan Lee’s caméos in the Marvel movies (and yes, that’s a lot). Because according to a certain theory, the character of the founder of Marvel would in fact … Uatu himself, the first Guardians to have appeared in the comics . And it did not take long for Kevin Feige to confirm this hypothesis in an interview with Screen Rant! He said: ” We thought it would be fun to put this scene in the film because we said to ourselves:” Wait a second, it’s the same character that appears in all the films. “”. This cameo is far from trivial and suggests that there is a real continuity between the different appearances of Stan Lee. The guy just spent his time traveling the galaxy to gather information and knowledge all over the place. And so one can imagine that he relates to the other Guardians all that he has learned. Except that these apparently do not seem very impressed … This is obviously not the last time we see Stan Lee, since he will also make a cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming . What to add new elements to the legend! What did you think of this cameo? Since he will also make a cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming . What to add new elements to the legend!
