Comic book legend Stan Lee is well known for his cameos in almost all of the Marvel films and this includes his appearance in Deadpool where he play a strip club emcee. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly for The Big Bang Theory’s 200th Episode celebration, Stan Lee revealed that he had a minor issue with his role in the long-awaited, R-rated superhero film starring Ryan Reynolds.
“I wish I had spent more time in the strip club, they had me in and out too quickly.”
In addition to making this humorous complaint, Stan Lee talked about his willingness to continue making cameo appearances in other Marvel films.
“If it’s a Marvel movie, I’m there for it. Whenever a new movie comes out, I hope they’ll have a spot for me. I get such a kick out of doing it. The fans seem to like it. I’m going to tell you a secret, here’s the reason the movies make so much money: My cameo. 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.”
It seems like Stan Lee will be making cameos in many more Marvel films to come. What did you think of Stan Lee’s appearance in Deadpool?
