Todd McFarlane has been quite vocal about the upcoming Spawn reboot, and now he has shared that he plans a cameo for Stan Lee and himself in the movie. But, this cameo will be unlike any other Stan Lee cameo seen so far. Blumhouse Productions and McFarlane joined hands last summer to start the reboot, and so far the writer/director has said a lot many things about the film about what it would or won’t be. As of now, the Spawn reboot is set to be in the Jaws genre of suspense.
He was at Arizona’s ACE Comic-Con and spoke about the Spawn reboot as well as his and Stan Lee’s cameos. Lee was on the panel with him when he made this statement about the reboot. They two shared jokes about the cameos, and Lee said to McFarlane that he had built an “institution” with the Stan Lee cameos and that’s not a lie. Lee has played cameos in all 17 MCU films till now and has shot a few more for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
Mentioning Stan Lee’s cameo, Todd McFarlane also informed the audience that he desired for a Stan Lee cameo which is unlike anything seen so far. And we know he aims to do that. McFarlane is planning a dark, villainous cameo for Lee. Rather than the clumsy and funny cameos that Lee has done in the MCU, McFarlane wishes him to be a sinister character. He said.
“I want to do a dark anti-cameo, unfriendly Stan Lee, and he’s like, ‘Todd, I’m in!’ I’ve explained what I want to do, and he’s like, ‘Oh, cool. So, I’m not gonna be, like, the happy-go-lucky?’ I go, ‘No, you’re gonna be ugly. You’re gonna be this Schlitz-drinking, wife beater, three-day-old shave, snarly dude.’ And he’s like, ‘I love it!’ So, we’ll see if we can pull it off.”
The update about Stan Lee’s suggested cameo in the Spawn reboot shocked everybody. However, it wasn’t surprising to hear about Todd McFarlane having scripted a cameo for himself. He has never concealed being connected with Spawn. He created the animated series and even played a cameo in the original Spawn film as a vagabond. We just need to watch what kind of a cameo he will do in this superhero film, but, it is unlikely to be a key element.
There is no official release date declared for Spawn reboot so far, but, it is expected to release in 2019 because production is commencing next month. The only thing we know about the movie is that it would be in the Jaws genre and Spawn won’t have dialogues in the film.
