Yes, Stan Lee is in Once Upon a Deadpool — featured in a touching tribute.

A post-credits scene from the PG-13 recut features a montage of photos of Lee through the years and snippets from an interview. 

The Marvel icon died last month at the age of 95. 

"He wrote some really good stories," Lee says in the scene when asked how he hopes people would remember him. "I don't think about that much. When I'm gone, I really don't care. It doesn't do you any good when you're gone."

The tribute ends with Lee's catch phrase: "Excelsior!"

Lee once joked that his cameo in the first Deadpool made me "damn mad," because he was a DJ in a strip club, but his portion of the scene was filmed on a set, not on location like the rest of the segment. 

Lee also has a cameo in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, voicing a store owner. It was among a number of cameos Lee has in the can that will be featured in upcoming Marvel films.
