During his Q&A last weekend for the Fan Expo 2016, Stan Lee provided quite the surprising answer when asked by a fan how he felt about taking on cameos for non-Marvel movies:
"I can't make out what he said, but it sounded like it came from the heart. I want to do more cameos also, I've even let people know it doesn't have to be a Marvel movie, I don't know why DC hasn't called me. They could use me!"

At a Marvel panel at the Fan Expo Canada, a fan asked M. Lee, when we could expect a Black Widow solo film. His answer confirmed something entirely different:
We haven't made a Black Widow movie but she's been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about.
We already know that Ant-Man is currently filming, and Doctor Strange is still working on finding its cast, but Black Panther is entirely new. Kevin Fiege told us to expect it in the future, but this quote from Stan Lee suggests we'll see it soon. What do you think?
Stan 'The Man' Lee you have done it! And dang if this legend deserves it. Los Angeles couldn't be a better spot for this either, as it's been home to the Stan Lee Comic Con (the biggest multimedia pop-culture event in LA for over five years now. Last year the event attracted over 76,000 attendees.
