Stan Lee is well known to many moviegoers as the king of cameos, whether it’s as a strip club DJ in Deadpool or an oblivious librarian in The Amazing Spider-Man. However, it’s his cameo in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War that seems to be one of his most important cameos to date.

In an interview with Nova 96.9, co-director of Civil War, Joe Russo, remarked on the process of crafting a Lee cameo for a Marvel film, stating the following:

 [Kevin Feige] gives us a really wide berth for the story we want to tell, and then, you know, as we work through the script, we look for a great cameo for Stan as we’re writing you know, and that’s our interaction with Stan.

You’re always looking to keep it different with him and you want to surprise the audience because they get a kick out of it, but you also want to make it relevant in some way, so he delivers a key piece of information in the movie.

Delivers a key piece of information? Could it be information that leads both sides of the war to the airport for their epic showdown? Or maybe it’s something that leads Captain America to Bucky? Either way, it will surely be something to watch for when the film is released.

Captain America: Civil War will arrive in theaters on May 6th, 2016.
