Back at the Scream Awards in the middle of October, I spoke to Stan Lee on the red carpet. We first talked about his Iron Man 2 cameo, but towards the end of our conversation, he revealed he’d already talked with director Kenneth Branagh about his Thor cameo and it was definitely happening.
While filming on Thor doesn’t start until next year, apparently Stan Lee’s been talking with director Kenneth Branagh via email about his cameo, as he posted a few tweets today about Thor. While he didn’t reveal any news we didn’t know, if you’d like to read what he had to say, hit the jump.
Here are the Tweet’s that pertain to Thor. If you’d like to follow Stan Lee on Twitter, click here.
Hey, I got an email from the multu-talented director of Thor, Kenneth Branagh. Not enough space left to tell what he said– stay tuned-
Kenneth Branagh (of course I call him “Ken!”) said my cameo’s set for the upcoming Thor movie. –To him, it’s a cameo, to me– it’s a ROLE!
I went easy on Ken Branagh when we discussed my role in Thor. Told him I wouldn’t insist on my name above the title, I think he was grateful
Yeah, I mentioned Ken Banagh a few times, but I warned you I was a name dropper. Seriously tho’, with him directing, Thor’s a sure winner
Of course, my previous tweet revealed the extent of my innate modesty. I really wanted to add “With me doing a cameo, Thor’s a sure winner”
Can’t tweet anymore. Due to Thor, I must start rehearsing my thee’s and thou’s. So, if thou objecteth not, I wish thee well! ‘Nuff saideth
While I have read some comments from people that are sick of Stan Lee’s cameos, I am not one of them. In fact, I love watching him make his brief appearance in every Marvel movie, and if you’re a true fan, you’d be with me on this one. After all, without Stan Lee, the world of superheroes would be a lot smaller.
