An exciting end-credits scene and a cameo by Stan Lee — these two things have become synonymous with every Marvel superhero film. Several die-hard fans, in fact, look out for Lee's cameo in the movies.
A few months back, the Godfather of Marvel Comics declared that his cameo in 20th Century Fox's Deadpool was his favourite, but at the recently held Silicon Valley Comic Con, Lee changed his mind.
"I loved the one that I did, I think it was in The Avengers (he meant Avengers: Age Of Ultron), when I want to have a drink that Thor is drinking," explained the creator of heroes like Iron Man, Captain America and The Avengers among others. "It'll be too strong for me, I think. And I drink it, and in the next scene they're carrying me out." (via ComicBook.com)
Lee also revealed his least favourite cameo of all-time and it's surprisingly in one of the highest grossing superhero movies — Spider-Man.
"My least favourite cameo was like the second one I ever did. It was a Spider-Man movie," Lee told the audience at Silicon Valley Comic Con on Sunday, referring to his cameo in 2002's Spider-Man, starring Tobey Maguire.
"Everybody is looking up going 'ooh,' and I'm one of the guys looking up going 'ooh' ...for one-second. And I resented that because it didn't give me a chance to show the full power of all my acting... I had a long talk with the director after that. He apologised, of course. I think in the next one [Spider-Man 2 (2004)] I was looking at another accident and they gave me another second to go 'ooh' like that," — clearly meaning it as a light-hearted dig at the scene, Lee went on to add, "Seriously, I don't have any non-favourite cameos. It's just such fun to be there."
