‘Avengers Assemble’: Stan Lee reveals sequel hopes

The comics legend reveals which characters he would like to see in a follow-up

Stan Lee has revealed his hopes for a sequel to Avengers Assemble.

The legendary comics writer said that he would like to see Dr Strange, Black Panther and Ant-Man feature in any follow-up to Marvel’s superhero mash-up.

Speaking to I Am Rogue, he said: “Oh I’d be happy if they add Black Panther and maybe Dr Strange. Those two and probably Ant-Man, which I think they are working on. Maybe I’ll play a little role in that.”


The comics veteran added that he “amazed” that the Avengers movie made it to the screen before DC Comics managed to get a Justice League movie off the ground. He said, “I never imagined Iā€™d see any of my characters become movies. But this was a logical thing to do. It was smart. I’m amazed that DC didn’t beat us to it with the Justice League. But you’ve got to hand it to Marvel.”

Avengers Assemble was released in the UK yesterday (April 26). Watch the trailer below.
