Stan Lee appears as an informant to the Watchers
This was a nod to the popular fan theory that Lee may be portraying one of the Watchers himself in his various cameo appearances. Stan Lee clearly exists, you know, above and apart from the reality of all the films. So the notion that he could be sitting there on a cosmic pit stop during the jump gate sequence in Guardians was something very fun—James had that idea.
