Stan Lee to Play “Big Role” in Upcoming Episode of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Is it really a “Marvel” movie without Stan Lee?  His cameos may not be a good luck charm, but they’re usually a fun moment when handled correctly (otherwise, they’re a distraction).  But he’s going to get more than a cameo on a Marvel product that more than needs his help.  The celebrated comics writer and Marvel mascot will be swinging by ABC’s ailing Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Lee tells THR that he’ll have a “big role”.  The details of the role are unclear, but he’ll likely appear on an episode on February 4th.  That’s still subject to change, but a February date wouldn’t surprise me considering that it’s sweeps.

Hit the jump to see Lee with several members of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast.  The show returns tonight with all new episodes.  And if you can’t get enough Lee, he’s starring in the animated movie Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, “in which he mentors a group of superheroes while writing about their adventures in comic books.”  The movie premieres on Hub Network on February 1st at 8pm.
