Stan Lee A Playable Character in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Video Game

Excelsior! Comic book legend Stan Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man, Iron Man and the X-Men will now be a playable character in The Amazing Spider-Man video game.

The Amazing Spider-Man is an upcoming action adventure game. Based on upcoming movie/film and Marvel Comics the game set to be released at the same time with the movie. Devolved by, Beenox and published by, Activision. - Wikipedia

Addict of Fiction's attended the London Super Comic Convention where he was able to chat with Stan "The Man" Lee. When Custard asked Stan if he'll be a playable video game character in the future, he got this surprising response.

So what is Stan's abilities going to be in the game? I'd give him the power of teleportation as a nod to his extensive list of cameos. Outside of that I don't know which type of powers would be fitting for him. What do you think?

Go beyond the movie to experience what it’s like to BE Spider-Man like never before. Set shortly after the events of Columbia Pictures’ new film, The Amazing Spider-Man throws New York City’s brand new hero back into free-roaming, web-slinging action, as he protects the Big Apple from a deluge of unimaginable threats. Experience the new Web Rush mechanic as Spidey twists his way through the NYC skyline with unprecedented speed and grace. The game’s original story also explores beautiful indoor environments, as you’ll encounter everything from skirmishes with everyday street thugs to pulse-pounding confrontations with Spider-Man’s most lethal foes.

RELEASE DATE: June 26th, 2012.

Stan The man Lee is going to be a character in the next spiderman game???And he doesn't play Video Games????

TheGambitFreak - 2/28/2012, 12:59 AM
Other costumes I'd like to get....

1. Bombastic Bagman
2. Ben Reilly/Scarlett Spider
3. Classic
3. First appearance
4. Future Foundation
5. Armored Spider-Man
6. Movie version of his first costume ((i.e. sunglasses, beanie, etc.)
7. Peter Parker
8. Stealth Suit Spider-Man
9. Iron Spider
10. Electrically Insulated Spider-Man suit (Why the hell not?)
11. The Fantastic 4 Spider-Man suit (the one with the black and blue mixed)
12. Mary Jane/ Gwen Stacy
13. Uncle Ben/Aunt May
14 Harry Osborn?
15. Norman
17. Thug
18. The full list of villain set to appear within the game (Rhino, Lizard and hopefully Shocker, The Spot and of course the ever so redundant, countless robots).

But, then again, this is Beenox, and while they will give us many alternate costumes, I'm sure they'll rehash 2099, Noir, Cosmic, etc.
