Director James Gunn says that he had “one of the most fun times on the sets” when it comes to directing Stan Lee’s Marvel cameos.
On Facebook, Gunn posted: “There are few people in this world I love and admire more and have more fun with than Stan Lee,” reports ew.com.
“Even though he does love breaking my, and everyone else’s balls (I introduced him to Tom Holland for the first time and he said, ‘Everyone says you’re great! Personally, I don’t see it.’),” Gunn added.
While “Doctor Strange” director Scott Derrickson said that Gunn had directed the next four Lee cameos, the “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” director wasn’t so sure.
“To be honest, I think I only did three cameos – one was shot by someone else. And my third probably isn’t what you think it is…,” he posted on the social networking website.
Of “Doctor Strange”, Gunn teased that it was “one of many versions I shot on the day, and Scott Derrickson chose the final one.”
“If I’m writing for Stan, why give him one line when I can give him a thousand’ I just kept throwing lines at him one after the other, until we were all doubled over with laughter. Someday, after you’ve seen the movie, maybe Marvel Studios will let me share some of those with you.”
