Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released soon. Marvel Studios eagerly ramps up the campaign for this last movie from Phase 3 of MCU.
A recent tie-in promo for Audi and the upcoming MCU’s movie Spider-Man: Far From Home has a subtle reference to the Marvel’s legend and Spider-Man co-creator, Stan Lee.
This promotional video for Audi’s new electric car, the e-tron GT, has Peter Parker use his connection with S.H.I.E.L.D. to access the prototype from a secret garage.
The garage is closed with a numeric access code at 1:20 in the video, Peter entered the code 12.28.22.
Yes, that 6-digit code is indeed Stan Lee’s birthday. Stan Lee born on December 28th, 1922, and made the concept for Spider-Man with Steve Ditko in 1962.
After the debut, Spider-Man has skyrocketed to become one of the main characters for Marvel Comics and got many adaptations for the last 57 years.
Stan Lee himself has become a cameo for every MCU’s films since 2008 in the first Iron Man movie. Lee also appeared in every single MCU’s Spider-Man movie, including Spider-Man: Homecoming as a simple old man living in Queens.
After his passing, Lee can’t appear directly in the next movie Spider-Man: Far From Home. Instead, his appearance is shown in other ways, like his birthday or poster in the movie.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home is starred by Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon, Martin Starr, Marisa Tomei, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
