Stan Lee Says His X-Men Apocalypse Role Is His Favorite Cameo So Far
The crowd went wild on Saturday when Marvel legend Stan Lee made a surprise cameo appearance at the San Diego Comic Con 20th Century Fox Deadpool/X-Men/Fantastic Four/Wolverine panel, but really, we shouldn't have been surprised. After all, it's Stan Lee, and cameos are his specialty.

Stan Lee Says His X-Men: Apocalypse Cameo Is Why You Should See the Movie

When asked at his Ask Me Anything panel which cameo was his favorite, he said he loved them all, but that his upcoming cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse may very well top the list, as it is "different than every one [he's] done."

The moderator whispered in his ear, presumably that he wasn't allowed to say anything more, but he's Stan Lee, so he said, "When you say I'm not allowed - will I be arrested?" 

Opening quote
"When you go see the next X-Men movie when it comes out and see my fantastic cameo, you will say, 'I remember he told me about it here. It's a different cameo in that it has one additional thing in it. And if that doesn't make you go see X-Men, I'm wasting my time."
Closing quote


His comments are still sufficiently vague, but the "one additional thing" makes us think that his role is somehow expanded, rather than just a brief, Easter Egg-ish glimpse. In other words, he might have an actual role in the film, which would be a refreshing and exciting change of pace.

X-Men: Apocalypse comes out in theaters on May 27, 2016.
