Leonardo Di Caprio Wants to Play Stan Lee in Biopic.
September 12, 2017
Stan Lee is one of the greatest comic book
creators of all time. The man who was known to create iconic
characters like Spider-Man and is the man who created Marvel
alongside Jack Kirby.
Knowing Stan Lee is the driving force behind the
comic book characters we know and love today and the knowledge that
he isn't getting any younger, I would believe that it is long
overdue for his full life story to be told. With that said, it
seems that actor Leonardo Di Caprio would love to star in the film
for the icon.
According to the Marvel comics book legend
himself. Speaking at a panel during the Wizard World
Nashville event (via AIPT!), the 94-year old Lee revealed that
DiCaprio wants to portray him in a movie
“Believe it or not, I’ve already discussed it
with Leonardo DiCaprio. He’s a neighbor of mine and we were talking
one day some months ago, and he said, ‘Boy it’d be fun to do your
story on the screen.’” So I said, ‘Well, I’ll audition you.’ Gotta
make sure the guy can do it.”
Now seeing DiCaprio is known for playing iconic
characters in iconic films and actually pulling off the role, he
would be a great pic.
