It's not the end of Stan Lee just as yet. The man who breathed his last on Monday night was known to make cameo appearances in several Marvel films. Lee may not be there when 'Avengers 4' releases in 2019, but fans will get a glimpse of the man who created these superheroes in the film. 

According to media reports, Lee had already shot for his part in the film in April earlier this year. 

In a report published in CBR.com back in April, director Joe Russo had confirmed Lee's appearance in the upcoming 'Avengers 4'.  "So, Stan, typically we try to get him out — he doesn’t love to fly — so we try to get him out for his cameos around the same time... so if we have other movies shooting on the same lot that we’re on, for instance, 'Ant-Man 2' or 'Avengers 4', we group his cameos together and then move him from one set to the next and kind of get him through his cameos in one day,” Russo had said. 

Not just 'Avengers 4', Lee will also feature in the upcoming movie 'Captain Marvel' and Disney film 'Ralph Breaks the Internet'.

Co-creator of some of the most iconic superheroes of our time, Stan Lee is credited for the success of Marvel comics in 1960s. 

The creator of Black Panther, Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Avengers and The Incredible Hulk amongst an array of well-loved superheroes, Lee had started Marvel comics with Jack Kirby in 1961 with `Fantastic Four`. 

As the news of his death came in, several of Hollywood celebrities took to social media to pay tribute to the man whose work inspired several generations. 

He also made cameo appearances in all of the Marvel movies. He had suffered major medical ailments over the last year. Lee is survived by his daughter. His wife, Joan, died in 2017.
