Now, Marvel legend Stan Lee has come forward to issue a public apology in regards to Iron Man 3, but it’s not for the reason that most fans might suspect. In a Youtube video, Stan Lee said, “You know something gang, this is the first time I have issued a public apology, and it has to do with the Iron Man movie, the new one.”
Stan Lee added, “I’m apologizing for a situation that came up regarding my cameo. My cameo had a couple scenes in it that were as funny as hell. The movie ran a little bit long, and they had to cut my cameo in half.”
Before Iron Man 3 came out, Stan Lee had talked up his Iron Man 3 cameo as being his funniest cameo yet, but he didn’t realize they “had cut the funny part out.” What viewers actually saw in Iron Man 3 was a brief scene of Stan Lee as a beauty pageant judge, holding up the number 10. It was a nice nod to the Marvel legend, but hardly as funny as some of his other cameos.
In closing, Stan Lee said, “It’s not my fault really. I had nothing to do with it.”
