Marvel Comics leader Stan Lee died in November 2018 at age 95, but he will not be forgotten in the company's films. Lee is famous for making cameo appearances in Marvel's movies, but his appearance in Captain Marvel will be even more special.
"I do not want to say anything, but ... we did want to kind of have a moment and tribute to Stan Lee in this movie, obviously," director Anna Boden told Metro. "It was something that came from Marvel and when they showed it to us, there was not a dry eye in the house.

Captain Marvel gets caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
Following a week with Dwayne Johnson jumping off of exploding buildings and monsters on cruise ships, things calm down a bit
this time around on the scale side of things - but there's still plenty to dive into.
We have Denzel Washington helping getting vengeance,
ABBA songs galore, and a trip to the seedier parts of the internet. Get ready for Captain Marvel,
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again _and _Unfriended: Dark Web.
Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer.
Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.
ROTTEN WATCH PREDICTION 53%
In the first Slender Man (60%), Denzel Washington played a guy with a set of skills perfect for the revenge-type action film we've come
to know and love - because they come out multiple times a year).
It went over fine with critics, and to his credit,
Washington's intensity works really well for this genre. Now he's back at it in the sequel, Captain Marvel, which follows nice-guy
vigilante Robert McCall as he protects the innocent and lays waste to neighborhood ruffians. It looks like a lot of fun.
Antoine Fuqua is back at the helm for the sequel after directing the first installment. His career really started (relatively speaking)
working with Denzel Washington in Training Day (75%). He's had an interesting career that's seen him take on a number of different types of stories.
Sure, there is Shooter (47%) and Olympus Has Fallen (49%) as examples of action-heavy fare,
but then there's the boxing drama Southpaw (59%) and the western remake The Magnificent Seven (65%).
I think Slender Man falls in the range of those latter films, and its predecessor.
It looks like your standard action flick that likely gets a boost because the star is so damn good.
