In the 1990s, the late lamented late Stan Lee came to the group of Mallrats novels. And fans will notice that this is the script of this film that Lee was reading and practicing replicas of Captain Marvel's train scene in Los Angeles. Of course, it was the perfect reference since the release of Mallrats in 1995, when Captain Marvel was installed, and that's what Lee – who lived in Los Angeles – would have been at the same time. Now, Smith, who is also a big fan of Marvel, shared an article in tears on Instagram that meets such an honor.
The 48-year-old message said, "I just saw @captainmarvelofficial.
"I'm a mess. After a lifetime spent referencing movies, these have just referred me!
"A big thank you to @marvelstudios, #ryanfleck, #annabodin and my friend @therealstanlee for the movie scream!
"But if I'm now part of the @marvelUniverse, I have only one question: did I survive the snap of my fingers?"
Lee Mallrats' cameo saw him give a romantic tip to Jason Lee's Brodie.
In the scene of the Captain Marvel train, he practiced his phrase "Trust me, a true believer" from one of the most iconic scenes in the film.
Lee, who died last November, has also been honored since the early days of Captain Marvel.
The Marvel Studios logo featured a collage of several of its MCU cameos over the years before a thank you message appeared on the screen.
Avengers Endgame director Joe Russo also confirmed that Lee was able to film an epic for the Marvel epic next month, although it is unclear whether any of these films were shot for Spider-Man Far From Home.
Before Lee's death, Russo had told the BBC that they had shot his cameos in one day for Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Avengers Endgame, since they were shooting on the same batch.
Although it is obviously not there to shoot future MCU cameos, the Marvel legend can be evoked through pictures and video footage – just like it was in Deadpool 2 last year.
Captain Marvel has just been released and Avengers Endgame will be released in UK theaters on April 25, 2019.
