Stan Lee sure does love his Marvel movie cameos! In a recent interview with Collider, the comic legend discussed his roles in The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Iron Man 3. Here's what he had to say.
The Avengers' cameo that you will see, when that movie opens up, is possibly one of my best. And you know how good mine have been, but [‘The Avengers] cameo] is so funny. I can't tell you what it is because they'd kill me, but it's funny.
Yes Stan, Marvel is going to kill the man that helped build their company... Disney might. And every cameo is Stan's best best!
The Amazing Spider-Man:
So is the ‘[Amazing] Spider-Man' one, by the way. They're deciding to make my cameos a little funnier. They know that's what brings the audiences in, of course, so they've gotta play them up.
All of his cameos have had a comedic flare to them, but it's been fun to see them up the ante in comedy.
Iron Man 3:
I haven't done that cameo yet. It's almost scary because they just give me a date. They'll say, ‘Stan, come over next Thursday for your cameo,' but they don't tell me what it is. So, I show up and they say, ‘Go to wardrobe.' In wardrobe, they say, ‘We want to get you a white shirt and a green sweater and a black zippered jacket,' and I'll say, ‘Don't bother, I'm wearing one.' And then, they say, ‘But, you can't wear yours!,' and they look around and get me the exact same thing, but I'm not allowed to wear my own. And I still don't know what my role will be. I go on the set and one minute before we're gonna shoot, the director says, ‘Okay, Stan, this is what I want you to do.' So, I don't know what is expected of me, until I get there, but of course, I do it magnificently.
I'm sure it will end up being one of his best cameos. What's your favorite Stan Lee movie cameo to date? What kind of cameo would you like to see him do?
