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!
“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.”
Well, would you want to see DiCaprio playing Stan “The Man” Lee on the big screen, true believers? Sound off below!
