During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kevin Feige had this to say when asked if there would be a Stan Lee cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home:

It sounds like Spider-Man: Far From Home could be Stan’s final MCU cameo.

The Disney-Fox Merger  is set to close on March 20, 2019. This means that Marvel will have the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters. It’s exciting to think about how these characters will show up in the MCU. However, there is a downside to the merger as at least 7,500 people are expected to be laid off in the process.

Nobody saw it coming when Marvel decided to release the second trailer for Avengers: Endgame. A new poster was also released. You can check both out below:
