Any Marvel Comics fan, whether new or old has come to expect a Stan Lee appearance when they go see a film in the theater and it’s usually one of my favorite parts of them (I think Tony Stank is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen). Fans of Lee’s cameos will be excited to learn that the writing legend and all around GOAT will be making an appearance in the upcoming X-Men television series, the current reference title being “Gifted”.
The executive producer of the show and the director of the pilot, Bryan Singer recently revealed a photo from Lee’s scene in the episode. In the Instagram caption, Singer even notes that this will actually be their third time working together.
#throwbackthursday Shooting my 3rd cameo with my epic friend @therealstanlee a few weeks ago at the famous #doublwide #bar in #Dallas #Texas. My first cameo with Stan was in #Xmen 1, nearly two decades ago in #malibu, he's a man of unstoppable energy and humor. Photo @aelvishaye with @dan_ryniker thank you @brightidea #maxanderson
Now that you know Stan’s going to be gracing us with his presence in the X-Men series, are you excited to watch? Let us know in the comments below!
“Gifted”s release date has yet to be announced.
