Stan Lee hints at surprise Marvel cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy

Last we’d heard, Marvel legend Stan Lee wouldn’t be showing up Guardians of the Galaxy because he didn’t have much to do with the comic — though, apparently, things have changed.

Stan Lee cameos have become a vital part of Marvel’s movie franchises, and the comic architect has showed up in everything from Spider-Man to Thor over the last few decades. But most of his cameos came in films based on comics he helped create or launch — and Guardians was a bit out of his wheelhouse.

But that doesn’t mean director James Gunn was going to leave him out of the fun. While speaking at the recent C2E2 convention, the 91-year-old former editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics confirmed he will pop up in Guardians of the Galaxy. He was just a little cagey about the details, though.

Here’s what he told the crowd, via Comic Book Resources:

“Now [Marvel Studios will] get mad at me. I can tell you that I don't understand what it was or why I did it. It was with a girl, a pretty girl. But you'll get a kick out of it."

Between Zoe Saldana and Karen Gillan, there are a fair share of “pretty girls” in the lineup, so that could mean a few different things. But Lee also hinted that the scene could have something to do with a “hologram” (not to mention his clean-shaven look, missing his iconic mustache).

So, best guesses?

Guardians of the Galaxy opens Aug. 1.
