During an appearance at the Silicon Valley Comic Con this past weekend, comic book legend Stan Lee discussed his customary Marvel movie cameos, picking out last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron as his personal favourite.
“I loved the one that I did, I think it was in The Avengers, when I want to have a drink that Thor is drinking,” states Lee. “It’ll be too strong for me, I think. And I drink it, and in the next scene they’re carrying me out.”
Meanwhile, Stan also joked about his least favourite, adding that: “It was the second one I ever did. It was a Spider-Man movie. Everybody is looking up going ‘ooh,’ and I’m one of the guys looking up going ‘ooh’ …for one-second. And I resented that because it didn’t give me a chance to show the full power of all my acting… I had a long talk with the director after that. He apologized, of course. I think in the next one [Spider-Man 2] I was looking at another accident and they gave me another second to go ‘ooh’ like that. Seriously, I don’t have any non-favorite cameos. It’s just such fun to be there.”
We’ll no doubt next see Stan Lee on the big screen when Captain America: Civil War hits cinemas in just over a month from now.
