UPDATE: Stan Lee Explains Why He's Not In X-Men: First Class; Confirms Avengers Cameo!
The legendary comic book creator reveals exactly why he won't be appearing in X-Men: First Class and confirms plans for him to have a cameo in Marvel Studios upcoming epic, The Avengers...
Once again taking to Twitter, here's what Stan "The Man" Lee had to say about his lack of cameo in X-Men: First Class and his seemingly confirmed one in The Avengers.
Warriors mine, grieve thee not that I have no cameo in X-Men 1st Class. ‘Tis just that the movie was filmed too far away for me to attend
Bryan Singer, the brilliant director of X-Men 1st Class, is a good friend of your beloved Generalissimo and we all wish him well
But know ye t his, I have already completed my roles in Captain America and the new Spider-Man, so all is well in Cameo Land.
Next up--The Avengers. Unless they shoot it on the Moon nothing shall keep thy leader from making his awesome presence known! Excelsior!
WOW! When I make a blooper it’s a lulu! The brilliant Bryan Singer didn’t direct X-Men 1st Class! Marvel-ous Matt Vaughn’s at the helm!
Sorry for any confusion, troops. Hope Bryan and Matthew’ll forgive me. But the most important thing I’m hoping is------
I hope my bonehead mistake won’t make them skip my cameo in the next X-Men just to teach me a lesson! Excelsior!
Huh, perhaps someone should tell Stan that it's actually Matthew Vaughn directing! Still, with no invite to the set (and little to no involvement with the movie) it's understandable that he might make a mistake like this. He's a busy guy after all! Regardless, X-Men: First Class will hit cinemas in a little over two weeks.
Meanwhile, with an all star cast which includes Chris Evans as Captain America, Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Rufallo as Bruce Banner, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, The Avengers is set to be released on May 4, 2012!
