As it turns out, Stan’s own mother missed one of his Marvel Cinematic Universe appearances — all because he failed to tell her his Black Panther cameo wasn’t until the post-credits scene. In a 2018 interview on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, Stan explained how this hilarious situation unfolded:

“My mom went to see Black Panther, then called me afterward and said, ‘I thought you were in this film.’ I said, ‘I am at the end.’ She said, ‘I didn’t stay.'”

Although Stan’s involvement in the Star Wars franchise remains pure speculation — and fan theory — at this time, both Stan and Hamill have spoken out about the Gossip Girl alum’s uncanny resemblance to Hamill’s look during the original trilogy years in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
