Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee says actor Leonardo DiCaprio is fascinated by his life and would love to portray him onscreen.
During a panel at this 12 months’s HasCon event ultimate week, Lee acknowledged DiCaprio is a big fan of Marvel and is raring about having fun with him in a film about his life.
It was revealed that Lee and DiCaprio had been really neighbours, which ended up with the comics creator visiting the actor’s dwelling.
“He has all the walls covered with big Marvel posters and everything. He’s got very good taste,” Lee acknowledged.
“He’s a neighbour 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, Ill audition you.’ Gotta make sure the guy can do it,” he added.
A Stan Lee biopic should not be launched however.
