Stan Lee Reveals His Least Favorite Marvel Movie Character

When you've got hundreds of kids, a few bad eggs are bound to sneak in. And that applies to the father of the Marvel Universe.

Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, and countless other iconic comic book characters, normally doesn't play favorites. But CBM convinced him to reveal which movie depiction of a Marvel character thrilled him the least.

"I was a little disappointed in the very first Fantastic Four, because I didn't care for how Doctor Doom was portrayed," Lee said. "But other than that, I thought the movie was great. And the actors were terrific."

Julian McMahon played Doctor Doom in the 2005 film, and as ScreenRant notes, it came out before the dawn of the MCU, which kicked off with 2008's Iron Man.

Still, Lee is diplomatic about all the Marvel movies. "I believe they captured the spirit and the intent of all of the characters, and I'm delighted with how they all turned out," he said. "None of them have disappointed me. In fact, I think all of these movies have come out better than everybody ever thought they would... Even the early ones were good. Maybe I'm just my own biggest fan."

Lee also chimed in on the casting of Zendaya as Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming. He said it's a "great idea" and he wishes he had thought of it. "I can't wait to see that gal, I can't wait to see that movie, and I think the public will love it."

Spider-Man: Homecoming is set for release July 7, 2017, but there's plenty of Marvel movies on the way. Doctor Strange opens Nov. 4, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 premieres next May, and Thor: Ragnarok is coming next November.
