James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy, comments that a Stan Lee cameo was based on an old Marvel Fan theory.
The mythical Stan Lee (1922 - 2018) participated in all the films of Marvel studios Until his death, in fact, fans were always looking for his comment, which used to be brief but fun. One of them was inspired by a theory circulating on the Internet.
How we got to see Stan Lee In so many different situations throughout all the movies, there was a Fan theory that ensured that he was actually playing Uatu the Watcher. A character from the comics who appears when important events are going to happen but did not participate in them.
James Gunn He knew this theory and since he loves to hide references, he decided that halfway through the film, we could see Stan Lee in space in an astronaut suit and surrounded by a group of characters known as the Watchers, a powerful alien race that observes and documents all events in the universe. Lee's character shares with them a story about the time he was a postman, a line that is possibly a reference to Stan Lee's role as a delivery man in Captain America: Civil War (2016). This lends some credence to the long fan theory that he is actually playing the same character in each of his cameos. Specifically, the theory reasons that Lee is actually portraying Uatu the Watcher.
Director James Gunn is famous for using a lot of social media and commented that, "For example, Stan Lee's connection to the Watchers in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was definitely inspired by fan theories."
We will miss his mythical cameos.
