Stan Lee's Venom Cameo Already Written

Illustration for article titled Stan Lees Venom Cameo Already Written

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.

Personally I think Stan Lee is going to combine rolls into this one and be The guy who sells hot dogs while watering his grass, only to walk out into the street while not paying attention and saving someone from falling rocks at the Same time. He will then turn into a hulk like monster and deliver mail while being a security guard. And he will be venom the entire time.
