In speaking with Superhero Hype, "Zombieland" writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese revealed that the iconic Marvel creator Stan Lee will have a cameo appearance in “Venom,” and that his role is a very particular one.
“Oh, yeah. Stan Lee is in it,” Reese revealed. “I feel like that’s the one thing we can say. He does appear in our script, and we’re very specific about where he is and why. May he live forever. Let’s hope he’s in many movies to come.”
Lee co-created a vast portion of Marvel’s most famous characters including the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and Spider-Man.
Lee, 86, will also appear in "Iron Man 2," says Collider where he will reportedly play talk show host Larry King who will interview Tony Stark on TV about his new black Iron Man suit.
Previously, he played a hot dog vendor in "X-Men;" a man who saves a girl from falling debris when the Green Goblin attacks at a street fair in "Spider-Man;" a man saved from being hit by a car in "Daredevil;" a security guard at Bruce Banner's lab in Ang Lee's "Hulk;" a pedestrian who saves a passer-by from danger when Doctor Octopus attacks in "Spider-Man 2;" and postman Willie Lumpkin in "Fantastic Four."
He was a resident whose garden hose water was sent upwards by the power of a young Jean Grey in "X-Men: The Last Stand;" a man in Times Square in "Spider-Man 3" where he tells Peter Parker "You know, I guess one person can make a difference"; and he was turned away from the wedding of Reed Richards and Susan Storm in "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer."
He appears as himself in "Iron Man," where Tony Stark mistakes him for Hugh Hefner, and in "The Incredible Hulk" he is an uncredited citizen who dies after consuming a soft drink contaminated with Bruce Banner's blood.
Here's to hoping the "Venom" film is good and clears up problems from "Spider-Man 3."
