Stan Lee made yet another of his popular Marvel movie cameos in Deadpool, but the former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief revealed at The Big Bang Theory’s 200th episode celebration that he had one little problem with the cameo.
“I wish I had spent more time in the strip club,” Lee told EW. “They had me in and out too quickly.”
Lee added that, while he may be hedging some of his convention appearances, he’s still up for more movie cameos.
“If it’s a Marvel movie, I’m there for it,” he said. “Whenever a new movie comes out, I hope they’ll have a spot for me. I get such a kick out of doing it. The fans seem to like it. I’m going to tell you a secret, here’s the reason the movies make so much money: My cameo. A man takes a girl to the movie, right? They’re watching the movie and they bend down to get some popcorn. In so doing, they miss my cameo. Now the movie ends, and they say, ‘My God, we missed Stan’s cameo!’ So what do they do? They run to the box office and buy two more tickets and see it again. That’s why the movies do so well, because of my cameos.”
Deadpool is now playing in theaters.
