Stan Lee’s Cameo in IRON MAN 2

A Scooper has sent us info regarding what Stan Lee will be doing in Iron Man 2. Since some folks want to avoid all spoilers at all costs, we’ll let you know what it is after the jump.

For those that don’t follow Marvel movies religiously but have always wondered who that odd, grandfatherly-looking figure who randomly appears in almost all their movies, the answer is writer Stan Lee. Lee is credited with creating or co-creating some of Marvel’s most enduring characters including Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, The Avengers, X-Men, and some cult superhero known as, “Spider-Man”. Stan almost always gets a cameo in Marvel movies because he’s such a delightful and iconic character himself among comic geeks. In the first “Iron Man”, we saw Stan mistaken for Hugh Hefner. How will we see Mr. Lee this time around? Hit the jump to find out…

Hey guys,

Big fan of the site. Since I hadn’t read this news anywhere, I wanted to let you know Stan Lee filmed his cameo for Iron Man 2. I was told Stan filmed earlier this week and he was dressed as Larry King. The scene has Stan asking Tony Stark when he’s going to be on his show.

While we usually like to have a second source, we are very confident in the accuracy of this report. It’s not an earth-shattering revelation (unless Larry King is actually The Mandarin; then we’ve unintentionally ruined the film), but it’s still neat and it doesn’t look like Stan’s cameo will be too distracting.

“Iron Man 2″ hits theatres on May 7th, 2010.

    I was sent this story on Wednesday of last week (the day after Stan filmed his cameo). We held off in posting due to trying to second source the info. And Nuke the Fridge has the story wrong. The story we posted is what happens in Iron Man 2. There is no mention of Black Armor or having him act as Larry King on his show. Stan Lee’s just a cameo, like what we posted.

    Also, we didn’t see Nuke the Fridge’s story until after we posted our story. Once we did, we took off the word ‘exclusive’ from the title. But we did not take anything from their story as we have had the info for days. If we had posted this info without checking it out for accuracy, this issue would not have come up. But we’ve been breaking stories for over 3 years and batting 100%. We wanted to keep a perfect record. Anyone who thinks we took this from another site without proper credit…that would NEVER happen. Check out our record. I think it speaks for itself.

    Matt-

    You need to fix the story & say http://www.nukethefridge.com was the source. They put the story up first!

    Do the right thing!

    You know, I don’t know what else to say to you. I have been doing this site for 4 years and we have NEVER taken a scoop from another site and tried to pass it off as our own. Look at how how many scoops we’ve posted in our 4 years online. Our track record speaks for itself. I know where our story came from and it sure wasn’t another website. Don’t you think it’s possible that TWO people knew the info and both spoke to TWO different websites? Also, we have a different version of the story.

    Why would I want to ruin our reputation on a Stan Lee story? As I said, we had this story since Wed and decided to hold it till we could confirm the facts. We were going to post on Friday night but decided to wait till Sunday night as it was a great Monday story. Wish we hadn’t waited.I’m done talking about it.

    Luis – NTF is a relatively new site (i.e. Indy Jones reference, this alone dates you) & have not established the integrity & reputation as Collider. To say they deserve credit because 1) they posted it first and 2) NTF SAYS it was exclusive doesn’t make it so.

    1) This does not imply when the story was known nor does it imply Collider fact-checkers even KNOW NTF exists to cross reference (which, when they did they pulled “Exclusive” PLUS they didn’t mention the other comments, an appropriate response as needed)
    and
    2) So some NEW site claims EXCLUSIVE source – you do understand that is your claim right? It DOESN’T mean it was the ONLY source for that info NOR does it imply that this source is REALLY exclusive.

    To be honest, you have nothing to really stand by that claim other than you have an interest in promoting NTF. I mean you didn’t even link to the story, just the home page (which obviously will change over time) &, for fuks sake, you’re a CO-OWER OF NTF

    You failed to establish a credible claim, and Collider is well within reason to ignore your babbling any further.

    As a semi-loyal reader of Collider (okay really I drop by when I remember to so about once every couple weeks) I don’t believe that I will be going to NukeTheFridge for movie news. There is no such thing as a 100% exclusive story. Everything can leak and to accuse someone of “stealing” a little story like Stan Lee’s cameo is pathetic.

  • stephen

    you seriously think that this site would put its integrity on the line for something as small as a stan lee story. oh yeah that story is going to be the biggest story that breaks for years to come. Its not exactly the new villian in the batman movies. and also who the heck has even ever heard of nukethefridge? its not exactly a slashfilm or movieblog. so let it go, and admit that maybe stupid small stories get overlapped on being spilled.

    I don’t know anything about Collider or NTF. But after reading the critical comments, it’s obvious that these posters are a-holes. Ignore them.

    Luis Lecca and tito. You’re both idiotic beings. Please re-read the facts and answers matt has given you. His response to your ridiculous allegations more then suffice as answers to you. Please stop being so ignorant. Holding info to confirm it is a noble thing to do for a news website and is not followed in suit by many. Take head to the fact that they’re that caring about the track record of the website.
