Stan Lee is "damn mad" about missing out on topless dancers for his Deadpool cameo

Stan Lee has racked up tons of cameos in Marvel movies. From the Marvel Cinematic Universe to Fox's Fantastic Four and X-Men films, his appearances serve as high-profile easter eggs that even the casual moviegoer can spot. He always looks like he's having a blast, and based on his latest performance in Deadpool it's not hard to see why.  

The scene in question takes place in a strip club, the camera cutting away briefly to the DJ booth revealing that Lee is the one spinning the tunes. Due to the wonders of editing, it turns out that the reality of the shoot was rather different to what ended up onscreen. At this weekend's MegaCon Lee spoke to reporters, revealing that he wasn't even in the club when he delivered his customary cameo.  

"I don't know if I should tell you the truth about that cameo. It will kill all your fun," said Lee. "I was not in the topless dancing place. I did that in a studio and then they put it into the movie, and I'm damn mad about that!"  

He is, of course, joking. He's not *really* mad about it. But nevertheless, he plans to ensure he doesn't miss out on being surrounded by half-naked women the next time around. "I made them promise on the next one," he adds. "I'm going to be right there." 

Directed by Tim Miller and starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller and Gina Carano, Deadpool is available on DVD and Blu-ray in the US now and on June 13, 2016 in the UK.
