DiCaprio keen to portray Stan Lee in biopic

DiCaprio keen to portray Stan Lee in biopic”

Recently, actor Stan Lee revealed that actor Leonardo DiCaprio is keen to portray him onscreen, as the actor seems to be fascinated by the Marvel Comic icon's life.

"Believe it or not, I've already discussed it with Leonardo DiCaprio", Lee told the audience.

One would hope that such a project would encourage other studios to get to work on biopics for other industry greats too - like Jack Kirby and Joe Simon - but even then, a feature that depicted Marvel's formative years would be even better. "Odd was another. At that time they were very weird compared to the other comics on the market, though they got more commercial since then and Stan Lee was a great writer." .

Lee also added that DiCaprio "has all the walls covered with big Marvel posters and everything".

In 1975, glam rock lord Marc Bolan was hosting the occasional interview on BBC radio program Today - a job that fortuitously led to him chatting to one of his idols: Stan Lee. However, since the boom of the genre and comic book films following the start of the MCU with Iron Man in 2008, fans have started to ponder the possibility that just maybe the MCU & Fox Marvel-verse will crossover one day. "You'll get more Marvel superheroes than you'll have time to look at in the next few years".
