There’s less than a month to go until the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, which means that we’re just weeks away from the next cameo from Marvel legend Stan Lee. However, it seems that Stan is a little disappointed with this one, as he was hoping to see himself battling Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa one-on-one.
“I’m a little disappointed in my Black Panther cameo,” joked Lee at the ACE Comic Con in Arizona (via ComicBook). “I had wanted a great fight scene where I fight the Black Panther to a standstill. I didn’t get that, but I want you to see the movie anyway. Even though it’s not my greatest cameo, you owe it to me to see it.”
Lee has already filmed a number of his upcoming cameos, covering this year’s Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp, as well as next year’s Avengers 4. Who knows, maybe he’ll get to fight Thanos instead…
After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
Black Panther sees Ryan Coogler (Creed) directing Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa alongside Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, Letitia Wright as Shuri and Nabiyah Be as Nightshade. The film is set for release on February 12th in the UK and on February 16th in the States.
