Stan Lee gets another cameo in 'Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

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.


Comic book legend Stan Lee talks about his new children's entertainment imprint, Stan Lee's Kids Universe

At age 90, having brought to life some of the most enduring characters in pop culture history, you’d think maybe Stan Lee would be ready to ease into a nice quiet retirement—but that’s just not how Lee rolls. The tireless comic-book legend who spawned such iconic Marvel superheroes as Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and Thor has now launched a new entertainment imprint called Stan Lee’s Kids Universe. The company plans to roll out a series of books, games, e-books, and other offerings aimed at young children ages 1 to 10, beginning with a book called Monsters Vs. Kittens and a mobile game for iOS called Goobeez: Pirate Adventure. We asked Lee and one of his partners, 1821 Comics co-founder Terry Dougas, to explain the new venture.

EW: Where did the idea to create Stan Lee’s Kids Universe originally come from?
Lee: From the fertile minds of Terry Dougas and Stan Lee! We got together one day and said, “The world needs a new line of literature for young people.” READ FULL STORY
