Stan Lee is one of the awesome recurring elements we expect from the latest Marvel movie, so it’s good news that he’s confirmed for a bunch more.
During Toronto’s Fan Expo, Lee appeared on Breakfast Television to discuss his future roles, as minor as they are, but it’s something fans do look forward to.
Lee will feature in next month’s ‘Doctor Strange’, followed by ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2′, and the hugely anticipated ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’. The 93-year-old also revealed that he has no actual input into any of his now legendary cameos which date back over a long list of Marvel movies.
“Oh no, no, they decide. If I was deciding it would be a half hour role. They only give me a few seconds, and they’re afraid I’ll overshadow the star. You know how that is.”
30 cameos to his name, the superhero creator doesn’t look like quitting any time soon, despite his age. While others his age would be quiet and withdrawn, Lee was amazingly upbeat, on the ball and full of energy as he talked (and not for the first time) about the creation of ‘Spider-Man’ and his utter love for comics.
Turns out the comic he was working on was coming to an end, so when he pitched the idea of Spidey, he was laughed out of the room and told it wouldn’t work. Defiant, Lee snuck Peter Parker into the edition and slapped him on the front cover. A month later it turns of it was their biggest selling issue ever and his editor gave the go-ahead for a ‘Spider-Man’ comic series.
It’ll be a sad day when Lee stops doing the cameos, but for now at least we can embrace his presence over the next 12 months.
