X-Men First Class Will be Stan Lee Cameo-less

10 Comments

Doing this movie news stuff, I usually end up knowing too much about a movie, and since movies have begun to drop little easter eggs and nuggets into their films, I usually end up reporting on them cause, well, that’s sort of my job, which means few surprises for me when I’m watching the actual movies. But I didn’t really know about Stan Lee’s cameo in “Thor”, and when I saw it, I howled. It was great. I think it was his best cameo, although I thought his appearance in “Spider-Man 2″ was pretty good, too.

All that is to say, fans of Stan Lee cameos in Marvel movies mourn, because the Man himself has confirmed that he will not be appearing in Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming “X-Men: First Class”.

Why? Stan Lee tweets that “X-Men: First Class” was “filmed too far away” for him to do his part. Which, uh, makes no sense. Um, green screen, anyone? Or, they couldn’t fly Lee over? WTF?

Anyways, at least Lee has confirmed that he’s already shot his “Captain America” and “Spider-Man” appearnaces. And just as an added bonus to myself, I’m not going to read about or report on any of his upcoming cameos so I’ll be surprised when I see them. I suggest you do the same. It’s much more fun that way, don’t you think?

Below, all of Stan Lee’s cameos in the Marvel movie universe so far:

    He made an Ironman 2 cameo for just a second.

    I have a feeling Marvel will go all out for his cameo, but he’s an old guy and who knows where they’re filming. If he was green screened in it’d look bad and then we’d be bitching about that.

    Uh, what Stan “The Man” Lee meant was that they “filmed too far away”-from the source material. If I were him, I wouldn’t want to cameo in that foX-Men trash either.

    reason he didn’t have a cameo in first class is because he didn’t want to i refuse to believe he agrees with the changes they made comparing to the previous x men movies don’t even mention the comics
    angel a woman, wtf and her wings, if i didn’t know any better i’d say she was wasp from the avengers

    my bad, the character is angel salvadore aka tempest/angel
    pff the title is wrong in so many ways
    tempest joined xmen later on not in the beginning whereas angel aka warren wrthington III was idd a founding member
    bit confusing if they only mention angel and drop salvadore
