As a kid, Stan Lee wanted to be an actor. Fortunately for millions of superhero fans, he carved out a different career path and created iconic Marvel characters like Spider-Man, Hulk, and Iron Man. But Lee still has found his way onto both the big and small screen, though if you had told him at the beginning of his career that his work in the comic book industry would someday earn him dozens of cameo roles, he “wouldn’t have believed it, no way,” he told EW.
Just as he’s had his few seconds of screentime in movies like Spider-Man and The Avengers, Lee will appear in Disney Channel’s upcoming special, Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, which teams up Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and Spider-Man with enterprising step-brothers Phineas and Ferb. He reprises his cameo role from 2000’s X-Men, a hot dog vendor.
Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel is the first animated crossover for Marvel and Disney, something Lee is very excited to see.
