If there's a movie based on a Marvel comic, there'll be a cameo for Marvel mascot Stan Lee. As if to prove that, even though the Spider-Man spin-off Venom is still being written, Lee's role has already been locked down.
Rhett Reese, one of the screenwriters for the Sony movie, was happy to tell Superhero Hype that Lee's place in the evil Spider-Man's solo movie debut was assured:
Oh, yeah. Stan Lee is in it.. I feel like that's the one thing we can say. He does appear in our script, and we're very specific about where he is and why.
Considering that Lee had nothing to do with Venom's creation - unlike Hulk, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Fantastic Four, all of whose movies he's blessed with his presence - we're curious to see where he turns up... and whether Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck, Tom DeFalco, Ron Frenz, David Micheline or Todd McFarlane (all of whom were involved in the creation of Venom in one way or another) also get cameo appearances in the movie.
