Stan Lee Dishes On Cameo In The Avengers And Praises Director Joss Whedon!
Ultimately praising the superhero flick's director, Stan "the man" Lee also reveals a tidbit regarding his cameo in The Avengers & why he thinks you may not recognize him.
As shown in several set photos from last weekend's final days of filming in New York, Stan Lee filmed his much-expected cameo for Marvel Studios' The Avengers. And on that same day, "the man" attended the annual Dragon*Con, where he ultimately praised director Joss Whedon and vaguely discussed the cameo.
Oh, He's wonderful, I was watching him direct. He knows just what to do, he knows just how to do it. He doesn't get flustered. Hes good with the actors, hes good with the technicians; hes just a good guy. I was very impressed with him; I've always been, but seeing him in action that way. It's one of the reasons that the movie is gonna do so well.
There was only one thing - when I was doing my cameo for The Avengers, after the third take, he asked could I take off my glasses because somehow the flash of the floodlights were hitting the lens and there was a glare. So I did my cameo without wearing my glasses - so the chances are you won't even recognize me. That was the only decision he made that I felt should'n't have made (laughs) He should've fixed the lights.
I can't talk about [the cameo], but I can tell you it is a very funny cameo - probably the funniest line that I've had to say yet. And I say it to Captain America. You may notice with my cameos, they don't like me to do my cameo with the stars, because the star doesn't need that much competition (laughing). But this time Captain America was fierce and went along with it.
Marvel's The Avengers picks up when an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security. And Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. With director Joss Whedon at it's helm, and an ensemble cast including Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Chris Hemsworth (Thor Odinson), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Clark Gregg (Agt. Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), with Tom Hiddleston (Loki Laufeyson), and Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig), the film releases worldwide May 4, 2012!
