Stan Lee Gets A Cameo In Phineas And Ferb: Mission Marvel
Stan Lee is a real renaissance man. He’s a writer, an actor, and a fashion icon with those signature aviator sunglasses. Most of the prolific comic scribes’ creations have made it to the big screen and so has he. Having cameos in most all Marvel related flicks, Lee has become a beloved Easter Egg of sorts. He’s made it over to the animated side of Marvel a few times, and later this month he’ll be doing it again in the upcoming Disney/Marvel crossover Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel. Entertainment Weekly spoke with the living legend about the upcoming animated special.
Lee will be appearing as a hotdog vendor in the upcoming animated feature that sees Phineas and Ferb Fletcher crossing paths with the likes of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk. Stan The Man played a hotdog vendor in 2000′s X-Men, so you can think of it as a return to the role if you wish. Lee remarked that if you were to tell him years ago that he would be in over a dozen movies later in his career he “Wouldn’t have believed it, no way.” He was excited to lend his voice to the show, and by all reports got pretty lively and animated in the sound booth. When asked what he thought about the crossover, Lee talked about his admiration for Disney:
The idea of Marvel and Disney doing something together is just wonderful. Years ago, when I was at Marvel, my dream was to make Marvel the type of company that Disney is, and when Disney bought Marvel, I couldn’t believe it. I felt it was the best thing that could happen, and with cartoons like this, now I’m sure it’s the best thing that could happen.
