Happy Halloween! Growing up, Stan enjoyed sci-fi, fantasy, and monster movies, and he relayed that admiration into several horror-themed comics and characters, which were all the rage in the 1950s and early 1960s.
But a big part of Halloween is getting into costume, isn’t it? Unfortunately, we couldn’t locate much photographic evidence of Stan outfitted as any spooky creatures, as one would hope for on this devilish holiday. But here’s something we found:
Fear not, those were quite obviously fake teeth.
Extra points here for Stan cosplaying himself!
But enough with the fake teeth and masks. In honor of All Hallow’s Eve, we’ve compiled some pictures of Stan dressed up in a variety of garbs for a variety of different occasions. None of which were actually Halloween, to be honest. And a lot were for cameos. But regardless—who doesn’t like to see The Man decked out in clothing other than his trusty sweater and khaki combo? He always loved getting into character, that’s for sure!
Because, well, these were by far the easiest photos to find.
Stan popped up in Hulk (2003) as a security guard with none other than Lou Ferrigno!
Stan appeared in Fantastic Four (2005) as one of his very own co-creations, mailman Willie Lumpkin.
In Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Stan was a WWII general. Fun fact: Stan actually served in the US Army during WWII.
Stan’s cameo in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) found him playing a security guard.
Perhaps one of Stan’s most beloved cameos: Playing a FedEx delivery man in Captain America: Civil War (2016). “Are you Tony Stank?” Gets us every time!
Stan turning up in an astronaut suit in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), chatting with some Watchers, also ranks high on many fans’ lists of favorite Stan cameos.
Who needs a haircut? Stan was ready to chop off Thor’s golden locks as a barber in Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
Photo Shoots, Video Shoots, and Everything Else
This was for an Arclight Cinemas campaign in which Stan got to dress up as one of his favorite stars in one of his favorite movies: Errol Flynn in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938).
This photo was snapped while Stan filmed a promo as a ship Captain for Disney Cruise Line’s Marvel Day at Seas sailings back in 2017!
Nope, this isn’t from Stan’s cameo in The Big Bang Theory. It’s actually from an event in Las Vegas that Stan attended many years ago.
Stan was used in an advertising campaign in Japan to promote the POW! project Ultimo several years ago.
This one is pretty self explanatory. At least we hope it is!
And this we don’t have any explanation for. But this is the enthusiastic Stan we knew and loved!
