If there is only one constant within every Marvel movie, throughout all of the different studios, it's that comic book legend Stan Lee has made a cameo in every single one of them. His brief performances have become the stuff of legend, and his scenes often provide plenty of comic relief, but not all of these movies have been hits. During a recent interview, the comic book legend revealed what his least favorite Marvel movie of all time is, and it may surprise you.
Stan Lee has previously stated that Iron Man, the movie that started the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, is his favorite Marvel movie. During an interview with Comic Book Resources, Stan Lee was asked what his least favorite Marvel movie was, revealing that he doesn't really dislike any of the Marvel movies, but the one he's most "disappointed" in is the 2005 Fantastic Four adaptation. Here's what he had to say below.
"I was a little disappointed in the very first Fantastic Four, because I didn't care for how Doctor Doom was portrayed. But other than that, I thought the movie was great. And the actors were terrific. I believe they captured the spirit and the intent of all of the characters, and I'm delighted with how they all turned out. None of them have disappointed me. In fact, I think all of these movies have come out better than everybody ever thought they would...Even the early ones were good. Maybe I'm just my own biggest fan."
Last week, a rumor surfaced that actress Zendaya is actually playing the iconic Mary-Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The rumor has never been confirmed, although Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn addressed the uproar over the young African-American actress possibly playing Mary-Jane Watson, although he didn't actually confirm that Zendaya is in fact playing this character. Stan Lee was also asked to chime in on the rumors, and he thinks it would be great if Zendaya is playing MJ, who has been traditionally portrayed as a white female in the comics and other movies.
"I think it's a great idea. I wish I had thought of it. I can't wait to see that gal, I can't wait to see that movie, and I think the public will love it."
It's worth noting that Zendaya has yet to be confirmed as MJ, with a leaked cast list revealing that she's playing a character named Michelle. Director Jon Watts also revealed at Comic-Con that Zendaya's character is named Michelle, with many fans speculating that this character is Michelle Garcia from the comics. Production is still under way on Spider-Man: Homecoming, so perhaps we'll get confirmation on Zendaya's character and others after shooting wraps.
