While generally beloved comic book writer Stan Lee has had cameos in almost every Marvel Comic-based movie and several games, he has somehow stayed out of the limelight as a playable character...until now.

In an interview at the London Super Comic Convention, Lee revealed that he will playable in Activision's The Amazing Spider-Man, a game spinning off from the upcoming film reboot.

Lee didn't provide any further details, so it's currently unknown what kind of role he'll have in the game. I'm hoping he's just a straight skin swap; the image of Stan Lee web-slinging around a virtual New York City sounds like maximum absurdity to me.
