co-creator Stan Lee has made cameos in the webcrawler's movies,
cartoons, and graphic novels for years, so this week's news that the
comic book veteran will make his first video game appearance as a
playable character in The Amazing Spider-Man isn't so much of a
surprise as it is long overdue.
Stan Lee revealed
his top secret role during an interview with Addict of Fiction at the
London Super Comic Convention. Although, it doesn't look like it took
too much digging:
Lee has appeared in video games before – most notably as the
narrator for past Spider-Man games, and as Senator Stanley in “Marvel
Ultimate Alliance 2”. By the sounds of it, The Amazing Spider-Man
will mark the former Marvel president's first full-on appearance,
image and all. Lee didn't say how he would factor into Beenox's movie
tie-in, but the smart money is on him being included as an unlockable
Spider-Man releases June 26 for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, and 3DS.
