Marvel and DC have long been competing forces in comics and now, the big screen. The passion of fan bases from both sides make way for a more heated argument as to which is the better franchise. However, despite the rivalry, a crossover between the two became possible back in 1996. Will the same crossover event happen in the Justice League movie?
The thought is impossible, especially how the films from the respective franchises focus on telling their own stories. However, one man is willing to step in the world of its rival.
The man in question is none other than Stan Lee. A comic book writer and former president of Marvel Comics, Lee became a well-known fixture in Marvel films for his cameos. Now, it appears that he is also willing to cameo even in DC films.
An article from MovieWeb details what Stan Lee had to say about the possibility of appearing in DC films. The website quotes him as saying:
“I want to do more cameos also. I’ve even let people know it doesn’t have to be a Marvel movie, I don’t know why DC hasn’t called me. They could use me!”
It’s interesting to see how DC responds to Stan Lee’s offer.
Justice League movie + Stan Lee
Though it would be a treat, it’s a far-fetched idea for the Marvel icon to appear in Justice League. Still, it’s good to keep an open mind. Maybe people from DC are game for the challenge.
While Stan Lee won’t be making any appearances on DC films soon, he’s already set for three Marvel films.
According to /FILM, Lee recently confirmed that he’ll have cameos in Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming. It’s still unknown how Lee would appear in those films, but based on his previous appearances, it will certainly infuse humor.
Looking forward to catching Stan Lee’s cameos? The soonest film on the lineup is Doctor Strange, which hits theaters on November 4, 2016. Consequently, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 releases on May 5, 2017 while Spider-Man: Homecoming debuts on July 7, 2017.
If you’re curious whether Lee appears on the Justice League movie, you have to wait until November 17, 2017 to find out.
