Stan Lee has filmed four more cameos for Marvel movies, and now it's learned they were directed by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn.

James Gunn confirmed the news of directing the Stan Lee Marvel cameos on Facebook, which looks to be for Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok

Here's what Gunn had to say:

And it was definitely one of the most fun times I've ever had on set. There are few people in this world I love and admire more and have more fun with than Stan Lee. Even though he does love breaking my, and everyone else's balls (I introduced him to Tom Holland for the first time and he said, "Everyone says you're great! Personally, I don't see it."). Although, to be honest, I think I only did THREE cameos - one was shot by someone else. And my third probably isn't what you think it is...

If you've seen the Doctor Strange cameo, it was one of MANY versions I shot on the day, and Scott Derrickson chose the final one. If I'm writing for Stan, why give him one line when I can give him a thousand? I just kept throwing lines at him one after the other, until we were all doubled over with laughter. Someday, after you've seen the movie, maybe Marvel Studios will let me share some of those with you. And hopefully you'll see the movie next week - in IMAX, where it's definitely best seen!

Have a great weekend, friends.
