As a website devoted to Marvel Studios productions, we get pretty excited about set pics. They can give us clues or offer some insight into the plot of a film or show, something that is usually very closely guarded. In the past we’ve speculated, both right and wrong, about things we’ve seen on set, but we feel pretty great about what this latest set pic means:
So what do we learn from this new pic? Stan is still the man. The looks on the faces of the cast and crew, which include directors Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland, tell you that while this national treasure is getting up there in age and, as of late has been going through a lot, he’s still a spark plug. While it’s likely he’s just on set visiting since we believe James Gunn already shot Lee’s Infinity War cameo, it’s great to see him interacting with the stars.
Other than that, there’s not much to be gleaned other than the fact that Tony Stark, Doctor Strange and Peter Parker are all filming a scene together, but given the scope of the movie, we should expect something like that. It’s great to see Stan still out and about and actively involved in the films based on characters he first brought to life. It would be great to have Strange do some work on the Time Stone and give us another century of Stan Lee.
