Stan Lee Confirms His Avengers Cameo, Wants To Be In Batman v Superman

So, Did Kevin Smith Really Write That Fake Batman v Superman Screenplay?
Just when we thought we'd heard everything there was to say about the Kevin Smith/Batman v. Superman script rumor, the man himself came out to deny he was even a part of the whole thing.
