Stan Lee has made some fun cameos in the movies based on the characters he created. It's a clever reveal in Iron Man when Tony Stark mistakes him for Hugh Hefner, it's funny when he walks out of a building with Lou Ferrigno in Hulk, and the scene when he gets rejected from the wedding of Reed Richards and Sue Storm in Fantastic 4 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer is one of the few good parts of the movie. But my personal favorite in the collection would have to be Lee's tiny role in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, playing a music-loving librarian who is completely oblivious to an epic Spidey vs. Lizard battle going on right behind him. And we can't wait to see what Webb has in store for the superhero creator next,
The above photo is the latest from Webb's Twitter feed, announcing the 85th day of production. The filmmaker titled the picture "Double Take," but it's pretty hard to tell exactly what he means by that. Does he perhaps mean that the audience will do a double take while looking at this image, realizing that they recognize the guy in the bottom left corner? Or is it something else entirely?
Scripted by Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 brings back Andrew Garfield as the titular hero and sees him going up a slew of new villains, including Electro (Jamie Foxx), Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), and The Rhino (Paul Giamatti). Emma Stone, Sally Field, and Martin Sheen will return as their characters from the previous film, while other newcomers include Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn and Colm Feore, Felicity Jones and B.J. Novak in unrevealed roles.
