One of the things that you can expect from a Marvel film is that somewhere in the movie, Stan Lee will be doing a cameo. It’s been pretty consistent so far, as the veteran creator has made appearances on films based on Marvel properties, regardless of studio (for the uninitiated, film rights to Marvel’s properties are currently split between Disney, Fox, and Sony.)
However, it seems like Disney’s own Guardians of the Galaxy adaptation will be the first one to break tradition, as Lee himself has admitted that he won’t be appearing in the movie, during an interview on Dweebcast. The reason Lee cited is because he had no hand in the creation of the group.
“I didn’t write Guardians of the Galaxy,” says Lee. “I’m not even sure who they all are. I can’t wait to see the movie.”
