Stan Lee On His THE AVENGERS, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN And IRON MAN 3 Cameos

While he doesn't reveal anything new, hit the jump to read Stan "The Man" Lee's thoughts on his humorous cameos in The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man, as well as preparing for an appearance in Iron Man 3.

By Josh Wilding - 3/20/2012

"The Avengers cameo that you will see, when that movie opens up, is possibly one of my best," he told Collider in a recent interview. "And you know good mine have been, but it is so funny. I can’t tell you what it is ‘cause they’d kill me, but it is funny. So is the 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."

Now that those two are completed, his next cameo will more than likely be in Thor 2 and Iron Man 3 (as long as they're shot in a location he can get to). As for whether he's already preparing for the latter, he said: "I haven’t done that cameo yet. It’s almost scary ‘cause 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."
Which Stan Lee cameo are you most looking forward to? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.

I like his Iron Man cameos the best so far. Larry King & Hugh Hefner right?
TrueRedBlue - 3/20/2012, 5:46 PM
I have to meet him. I just gotta tell him how much his creations have impacted me and how greatful I am for them.

HAHA! I love how cocky he is, but it's true, you gotta love the 'The Man.' I've wrote many a papers on him in High School, he is my idol.

Stan's on Cloud 9!!!

I think his Thor cameo might be my favorite. Both Iron Man cameos were pretty clever too.

Seriously! How can you not like this Marvelous Legend! I'm glad I got to shake his hand at the Comic-Con, he is so enthusiastic and exuberant, you can't help but have a Joker-ish smile from one ear to the other!

Ah, Stan. As always, your cameos are the BEST performances in the Marvel movies. Thank you so very much, sir, for creating such a universe where the imaginations of many can go and explore. I do very hope that one day I get to shake your hand and talk with you. Thanks, Stan! :D

In the words of Stan Lee, EXCELSIOR!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 3/20/2012, 6:07 PM

Dechiriko - 3/20/2012, 6:32 PM
Stan should reveal to be an agent in disguise who's set to spy on every superhero out there
AsianVersionOfET - 3/20/2012, 6:42 PM
Daddy loves himself a little Stan Lee
RocketMadnessBoss - 3/20/2012, 6:42 PM
Such an unbelievable ego, lol.
gunner - 3/20/2012, 6:43 PM
Met him a few years back , he made me feel very special!
I grew up reading nothing but Marvel as a kid and as a teen , He taught me about Gamma radiation and mutants, i sure wasn't learning about that stuff in junior high.
He's a class act and we owe him tons of kudos for raising the bar when the bar sucked.
MadTitan - 3/20/2012, 7:21 PM
he's the man! famous yet very down to earth humble...would kill to get a photo and a signature from him. xD

BlindLemonShemp - 3/20/2012, 7:36 PM

BlindLemonShemp - 3/20/2012, 7:42 PM

-Little britain reference.
Mastyrwerk - 3/20/2012, 7:45 PM
I hope Thor 2 takes place entirely in the other realms, so they have to dress him up in Asgardian clothes to make a cameo.

The one with Jack Kirby...

I can not believe he's still alive! lol honestly
santoanderson - 3/20/2012, 8:06 PM
I prefer the cameos where he doesn't get lines. His cameo in Spider-man 3 was a real eye-roller.
Lego - 3/20/2012, 8:23 PM
Nah The Dark knight rises is better
Cartoon22 - 3/20/2012, 8:23 PM
Stan=Marvel=BEST COMICS EVER!

I love his cameos

@Mr. Gusto- my mother was born and raised in ohio, sir. ...although, i'm not quite sure if that's a good thing myself.
Giraffehead - 3/20/2012, 10:52 PM
I feel sorry for those of you who aren't in on the joke.
mrHJK - 3/20/2012, 10:55 PM
I wish I was as cool as Stan Lee...but I'm not :(
Grimm - 3/21/2012, 12:06 AM
Any one who thinks Stan is being egotistical obviously has NEVER seen or heard an interview with him. He is by far the most humble "celebrity" out there, and YOU have misspoken. He was so clearly joking about being the reason people watch the movies, but he has a valid point! Those of us that are true fans of the genre really appreciate his involvement in the movies. I only wish the production companies gave HIM more control of the final product.
Grimm - 3/21/2012, 12:09 AM
And Gusto... just because Stan is half your age and far more handsom and scores 10 times the women you do is no reason to be so incredibly jealous! Perhaps he got to actually LIVE your dream with Kirby, perhaps he didn't, but your speculative rage is missaimed my friend...
