Stan Lee Wants Cameos in DC Comics' Films

From worstpreviews, Stan Lee, the co-creator of such Marvel heroes as The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Daredevil, Spider-Man and the X-Men, has appeared in just about every Marvel film. In fact, directors have been coming up with fun ways to work in Lee's cameo into their films.

Now, Lee has revealed via his Twitter account that he wants more screen time. But it's not bigger roles that he's looking for, it's to appear in more films. He wrote: "Wouldn't it be cool if DC gave me a cameo in their next Batman movie! What are you waiting for? Start a letter-writing campaign!"

Lee is mostly known as the man behind Marvel, but he has done a bit of work with DC Comics as well. Probably not enough to deserve cameo roles, but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask.

Too bad he screwed so many artists and writers back in the day.

I wonder if these movie cameos get him a lot of ass.

I'm kidding! He's old.

I remember one of the postmodern '80's comics had a character named "Stanley Presents" who ran the big comic company. Ha ha, get it?

In the "1963" limited run Image comics series, which was completely written by Alan Moore, each issue had "bullpen bulletins"-style pages written by "Amenable Al Moore" with little digs at Marvel's draconian "right to work" rules and anti-writer/artist policies.
