Stan Lee’s THOR Cameo Revealed?

     April 18, 2010

stan_lee.jpgAlmost a year ago, we broke the news of Stan Lee’s cameo in Iron Man 2.  While the film still hasn’t been released, that hasn’t stopped Lee from filming his next cameo in Kenneth Branagh ‘s Thor.  Since many of you might not want to know what the cameo is…it’s after the jump.

As we said in the Iron Man 2 article, 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.

If you follow Stan Lee on Twitter, you know he tweeted when he filmed his Thor cameo.  And thanks to a scooper at fanboyweb, this might be it:

Thor’s hammer ( Mjolnir ) is found in the middle of a road somewhere inside a crater by the army. The Army try’s to remove it but can’t because it’s way too heavy. They decide to bring in a truck to help. The army men tie Thor’s hammer to the back of the truck with chains hoping to pull it of the road. The truck driver accelerates to pull the Hammer. The back half of the truck falls apart from the front and the front keeps going. Finally,there’s a focus on the driver it reviled to be Comic Legion Stan Lee.

As most Marvel movie fans know, Lee usually has a funny cameo.  This fits in with what he’s done in the past.  I guess we’ll know if it’s true May 6, 2011.
