Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse - The Stan Lee Cameos Everyone Missed

Stan Lee was all over New York during the animated Spider-Man movie.

Spider Verse Stan Lee

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was one of the best comic book movies of 2018, and among its many great scenes was a loving tribute to Stan Lee. The Marvel creator appeared in one of his classic cameos, this time as the owner of a comic book shop who sells Miles Morales a Spider-Man costume. It's up there with the very best Lee appearances, and a truly touching moment in light of his passing.

However, it apparently wasn't the only time they put Lee into the film. Animator Nick Kondo, who worked on the film, revealed one such cameo on Twitter, with Lee on a train that Spider-Man swings past. It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment - hell, it'd be easy to miss even if you didn't blink - but it's a great touch:

After that caught people's attention, producer Chris Miller revealed another Lee cameo. In the moment when Miles and Peter Parker are on the streets of New York, we see Lee walk over them just as we hear "thanks, New York."

Miller added there are lots of Lee cameos scattered throughout the movie, so it's going to be great going back through on rewatches, and seeing just how many can be spotted.

Did you spot these Lee cameos? Any others you know of? Let us know down in the comments.
