We’ve known that ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘ was going to have a cameo from Stan Lee and now some details about what to expect are coming to light. The directors of the movie wanted to open up a bit as to how Lee would be featured and how they hope his appearance can live up to the iconic creator’s legacy.
These details aren’t precisely spoilers, but you may want to avoid them if you want the scene to be a surprise.
The scene in question will probably be early in the movie as it has Shameik Moore as Miles Morales receiving some words of wisdom from Lee. At the moment we see Morales trying to decide what to do with his powers and how destiny and duty should play into his life now that he has great power within him. In the film, Lee is a merchant and a bit of a showman but has sage advice to share with the next Spider-Man.
According to director Bob Persichetti:
“It was important to us that his character was important to the plot. And we achieved that, his character has a key moment and gives Miles a talisman.”
Co-director Rodney Rothman also added that they recently watched the film with a test audience and was surprised at the response when they saw Lee:
“Watching it with an audience the other day and all the different emotions that they were giving off was just incredible.”
