The Stan Lee Cameo

Minute Seventy-Three: From The End of the Movie? to Attack Strategizing

Joining us today, we have Jonathan and Tabitha Carlisle!

In the seventy-third minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger

Senator Brandt tries to give a medal of valour to Captain America, but Cap’s a no-show. We do get the Stan Lee cameo instead, but where does this take place? Why does it look so fake? And what’s up with the terrible stand-ins they have play Stan and his friend in the wide shot?

We talk about barrage balloons and the Daily Mail, not to mention Steve’s new-found photographic memory and his humble brag.

Plus, we have an extended scene to discuss. Tune in!
