This cameo is supposedly highly unlikely. However, Fans believe his involvement in the movie could be an appropriate swan song. There’s also a theory floating around that ‘Far From Home’ ties into the scene where we first see Peter Parker/Spider-Man in ‘Infinity War’, meaning Lee’s final cameo could simply be a reprisal of his school bus driver from the ‘Avengers’ movie.
