He’s had a hand in creating some of the most beloved superheroes of all time for Marvel, but now comic-book icon Stan Lee is getting the hero treatment. 20th Century Fox has reportedly acquired the rights to Lee’s life story with the intention of turning it into a fictional action-adventure movie set in the 1970s, with Lee as a James Bond-style protagonist — now there’s a series of words you’d never conceive of stringing together.

The fact that Stan Lee is guaranteed to appear in nearly every single Marvel movie is one of those small little charms of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that I hope never goes away. Sure, some people probably view it as an annoying break in the fourth wall, but it also reminds audiences that we are watching a superhero comic book movie. These movies don’t need to choose between being cartoonish and deadly serious; they can be both, often at the same time, and Stan Lee always helps drive that point home.

Late last week a pretty substantial rumor surfaced suggesting that Zenadaya’s secret role in Spider-Man: Homecoming is actually Mary Jane Watson. While neither Marvel nor Sony have confirmed or even responded to those rumors, it elicited an unfortunately predictable reaction from several fans who were unhappy that a woman of color would be playing a character traditionally depicted as a white redhead. James Gunn already weighed in with his thoughts, and our own Matt Singer wrote an excellent piece on the matter, and now Stan Lee himself has offered his reaction to the recent casting rumor.

Disney may be having itself quite a weekend, but another corner of the empire will start to pull focus in 2016, as Marvel fans gear up for Captain America: Civil War. 2016 will also mark the 75th anniversary of the character, for which ABC has drafted an hour-long Cap special to air just before the Season 2 premiere of his best gal, Agent Carter.

‘Romeo and Juliet’ to Become the Dystopian Cyborg War Movie You Never Asked For

The works of William Shakespeare are hardly immune to modernist revisions, from Baz Luhrmann’s ‘90s take on Romeo + Juliet to Michael Almereyda’s Hamlet with Ethan Hawke — not to mention the various ways the bard’s works have been repurposed in rom-coms for decades. But none of these adaptations have anything on Romeo and Juliet: The War, a graphic novel retelling of Shakespeare’s tragic love story featuring cyborgs and genetically-enhanced humans.

Stan Lee Says His ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Cameo Is Very ‘Different’

Stan Lee is perhaps the closest thing we’ll ever have to continuity between all the Marvel films. The legendary comic book creator has had cameos in just about every single Marvel movie regardless of studio affiliation, including X-Men, The Avengers and Spider-Man. He’s the only free agent able to move between properties, offering up silly little appearances in each Marvel movie with a friendly grandpa wink and a nod.

Aside from the larger connections in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s one thing that ties every one of their superhero films together, regardless of which studio is behind it: a cameo from comic book creator Stan Lee. Even ‘Big Hero 6’ gave Lee his own cameo in animated form. But James Gunn apparently almost disrupted this long-standing Marvel movie tradition, as the director revealed that he originally planned to kill off Stan Lee for his cameo in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’

Marvel's upcoming 'Agent Carter' spinoff may have a harder time tying into the cinematic universe than its contemporary TV peer 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' but the new 1940s-set serial will have the blessing of its franchise's godfather all the same. Stan Lee has confirmed himself for a cameo in Marvel's upcoming 'Agent Carter' TV series, which has an even newer trailer to boot.
