Any observant viewer will have noticed Stan Lee’s cameo in the recent 20th Century Fox hit Deadpool. If you’ve not seen the film yet then we suggest you get your butt out there and do so!
[Warning: Deadpool Spoilers Ahead]
In a typically Deadpool appropriate twist, Lee appears as the DJ in a strip club visited by our masked anti-hero.
However, the former Marvel editor-in-chief revealed in a celebration for the 200th episode of the Big Bang Theory that he had a significant issue with his cameo saying: “I wish I had spent more time in the strip club…They had me in and out too quickly.”
Lee also took the time to confirm that he has no plans to stop his cameos, even believing many of Marvel’s cinematic successes to reflect his performance:
“A man takes a girl to the movie, right? They’re watching the movie and they bend down to get some popcorn. In so doing, they miss my cameo. Now the movie ends, and they say, ‘My God, we missed Stan’s cameo!’ So what do they do? They run to the box office and buy two more tickets and see it again. That’s why the movies do so well, because of my cameos.”
What a guy! Excelsior!
