American comic book writer, actor, former president and chairman of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee was at London Film and Comic-Con event to talk about Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man films.
During the press conference, Lee said “All it can do is make it better for Marvel if we do these movies and the movies are successful.
There are people reading Marvel comic books that would have never thought to read a comic book before. It helps the comic book business.
The movie business has been unbelievably incredible. The Marvel movies are about the biggest money-making movies of all.”
He adds, “The movies have been great. We have been so lucky. We’ve got the best directors, the best special effects people and wonderful actors.
People that had not been big stars before like the fellow who plays Thor (Chris Hemsworth) – he’s wonderful! I was with him yesterday – I did my cameo of course [for Avengers: Age of Ultron].
And Chris [Evans] who plays Captain America… He’s excellent.”
Stan Lee added that DC Comics should ask him to cameo in Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“DC could probably make a lot more money with Superman and Batman if they announced that I’d have a cameo in it!
People wouldn’t believe it – they’d have to go to the theater to see it!”
The film features Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, with new additions to the cast Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as Vision and James Spader as Ultron.
