Stan Lee's favorite movie role might be Mallrats, and his favorite Marvel movie cameo might be in an as-yet-unspecified movie that he recently filmed for in Georgia...but the comic book legend admits that Deadpool was pretty darn funny.
Asked about his inspiration for Deadpool, and what it was like to meet star Ryan Reynolds, Lee had to explain to the audience member that he wasn't the creator of the character -- although he was pretty jealous and "hated that guy" for coming up with a character so great without him.
He also said that he had a particular fondness for a line from the film's first action sequence.
"I think one of the funniest lines in any superhero movie was in Deadpool, when he's fighting, shooting all these other bad guys and he looks at his shells left in his gun, and he says 'I've only got eleven shells, you'll have to share.' I think that was brilliant, whoever wrote that."
Lee has also gone on record as saying that he quite enjoyed his cameo appearance in Deadpool, although he would have liked to spend more time with the girls at the strip club. Lee filmed his part on a green screen sound stage and was edited into the club later.
