A new Yahoo article provides the first look at Stan Lee as a playable character in the game, and it also has details about what you need to do in order to unlock this very cool feature.
The special feature will be unlocked to anyone that pre-orders the game through Amazon.
Players can take on the role of Stan "The Man" Lee during his own special mission throughout Manhattan. While traversing New York City in the game world, players will be accompanied by Lee's famous witty banter.
This special mission, which involves tracking down pages of a lost manuscript. Morphing into a video game character required Lee to do photo shoots and lay down some voice tracks.
Stan Lee a few months back said that he would be a playable character in The Amazing Spider-Man video game and now you have your first look. The legendary comic book creator will be providing the voice and his playful banter that we know and love.
"I'm just a living cartoon. I couldn't believe it when I got the call from Activision. Then they asked would that be OK with me, would I want to do it. I shouted, 'Of course!' It sounded sensational."
"I didn't know if they made me look more like Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt. It's hard to know, and it must be hard for them to pick the right image for me because how could you reproduce this [face] accurately in just a game?"
"This wasn't easy for me, practicing all these moves. I'm just afraid when they see me do it, that may put Spider-Man in the shadows. I hope they don't have me looking too realistic and life-like. That would be tough for the Spider-Man fans. I swung through the city like an average guy would do, instead of giving it my usual derring-do."
"I'm like a prisoner in a cell marking the days off until I get the game. Every game Activision does, I am so impressed with the quality of it: the visuals, the sound, the imagination that they put into it. They are all true to the comic books, but they are all different enough from the comic books that it is a totally different experience."
Go beyond the movie to experience what it’s like to BE Spider-Man like never before.
