HASCON 2017: Stan Lee has talked to Marvel fan Leonardo DiCaprio about playing him in a movie

At HASCON 2017, Stan Lee revealed he’s spoken to Leonardo DiCaprio about playing him in a film.

So, there’s already that rumor going around about Warner Bros. wanting Leonardo DiCaprio for their upcoming Joker origin story. But it turns out, someone else has been talking to the Academy Award-winner about another origin story – Stan Lee!

During the September 8 panel with Stan Lee at Hasbro’s first-ever HASCON, a member of the audience asked the legendary creator who would portray him in a film.

“Believe it or not, I’ve already discussed it with Leonardo DiCaprio,” Lee told the audience. “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.”

Lee went on to say that DiCaprio is not only a “Hell of a nice guy,” but a big Marvel Comics fan as well.

“He has all the walls covered with big Marvel posters and everything,” Lee said. “He’s got very good taste.”
