With all the cameos in the Marvell movies they must have enough data to recreate him in every movie going forward if they (and he) wanted to. It would be kind of appropriate for him to live on forever as a rendered, imaginary character.

I can imagine him more as a person shown on a TV screen as a memory versus a live actor.

Might be a longshot, but I kind of hope they do something big in Avengers 4 to basically end the live cameos. That film will already be a turning point for Marvel cinema, and it would be a golden opportunity to say goodbye while some actors retire from the MCU.

From there, they can just place pictures or murals (which they've done in the past). Then Stan becomes the Mickey Mouse logos found in Disney films everything.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

Can't believe he was 95. Also learned he apparently served in WWII in a support role... if only more people could be as positive and upbeat as he was the world would be better for it.
