If you don't like spoilers, then you might want to stop reading this article. This weekend Stan Lee accidentally slipped up during a panel at Dallas Comic-Con about his cameo in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Lee, who took the stage with Marvel artist John Romita Jr. was so excited that he could barely contain himself when an audience member asked him about his favorite role. According to Lee, the upcoming Spider-Man cameo is "the funniest one yet!" and is one he is the most excited about. Oh, and what's the best kind of proof? The kind that's caught on tape. Someone managed to catch Stan Lee's answer on video and were quick to upload his response to Youtube. And juuust in case they decide to take it down, we decided transcribed it. If you're curious you can check out the video below!

Fan: Stan, you've done tons of cameos for Marvel Films. I have two questions. One, how does that work? Do you just show up one day and they say 'Hey Stan, let's get you in a scene," or is it written in advance. The second question is which cameo is your all time favorite?

Stan Lee: They have asked me to do these and I have loved doing them. Wait until you see me in Captain America! Wait until you see the Spider-Man one! I guarantee the Spider-Man one is the funniest one you will ever see. Oh and I'll tell yousomething else. I didn't do one for the new X-Men movie (First Class). For some reason they didn't call me. Maybe it was because they shot most of it out of the country, and I didn't want to travel that far. But I figured out the reason why they didn't call me- they are so shrewd! They figure that without me they would sell more tickets. People will go to the movie, and come out and say to themselves 'Wait a minute- we didn't see Stan's cameo! We must have missed it! Then they'll want to go back and that will sell twice as many tickets!

John Romita Jr.: So which is your favorite? That was the second part of the question.

Stan Lee: The one that hasn't come out yet, the Spider-Man one. Wait until you see it! None of these are my idea, they tell me what to do, but this one is genius. Should I tell them? "
If they find out they may not let me do any more cameo's! Okay, there's a big battle going on with Spider-Man and the Lizard in the Library. I'm the librarian. I'm stamping books and I have earphones on and I am listening to music. (Stan mimics). Meanwhile, this life and death battle is going on behind me and I don't know it because I can't hear them!" So that's what it is, and it's so funny and I look so dumb! 
 == TEASER ==

By the look on JRJR's face, I'm not too sure it was such a good idea for Stan to leak his cameo in the next Spider-Man movie, but honestly, what's the worst that could happen? The way I see it, the man created Marvel comics- if he wants to leak his damn cameo, he's allowed.

If you don't want to watch the video (above) where Stan makes his big reveal, then why not check out the video compilation below all of 'Stan the Man's' appearances.
Which of Stan Lee's cameos is your favorite?

Stan Lee's cameo as Hugh Hefner in the first Iron Man was hilarious.

I liked the one from Rise of the Silver Surfer because he actually gets to play himself. Although he could be playing himself in any one of those other non-speaking roles. Kind of surprised to find out he wasn't in X2.

I actually liked his cameo in Spider-Man 3. He actually had lines and he got to say: "Nuff Said".

I am now curious about the Amazing Spider-Man cameo. I thought the Proto-Goblin was going to be the villain and Connors was just going to be Connors not the Lizard.

Also wondering why a movie called X-Men: First Class didn't script a cameo for Stan Lee

Stan made such a great point on the X-man thing. If I missed stans appearance i would go buy another ticket and see it again. The Spider-man appearance does seem like a great cameo for Stan.

When I really think about it, I seriously doubt I'll watch the new Spidey film, so this is probably not a big deal for me.

I like the Spider-Man 3 appearance, simply because he says " 'nuff said ".  The Rise of the Silver Surfer scene where he emphatically defends the fact that he's Stan Lee is a little funny though.

I clicked on the link to see his answer and it was great.  Awsome to see that (*** ******) is in the movie as the baddy or one of the baddies.  The best answer he gave is the one I've given in almost every battle forum on here.  He was asked who would between Hulk or Juggs and he said "it depends on who the writer wants to win".  Why else did Cannonball beat Gladiator?

My favorite is his Rise of the Silver Surfer cameo because it happened in the comics. That's closely followed by his cameo in Thor.

Wow Lizard? Now I'm considering going to see this. That sucks, here I was all up on my soapbox about "no more reboots", "No more b.s.". Now their doing a Doc Connor take on Peter's origin? Nice.

Stan's just wonderful I think.  He has to do cameos I say. Just has to! I think my favorite cameo of him was in Thor honestly!

Stan Lee's cameo in THOR I think was the best... since it was very surprising and got the most laugh I've heard in the theater.

He didn't do Iron man 2?  I kinda liked The Incredible Hulk.  Subtle yet epic.  @Manchine said:

Wait, Spidey's 1 an 2 he saves people? Pfft, what a waste to double up. At least in Iron Man he's Hugh Heffner. But I gotta say my fav is the actuall "I'm Stan Lee" in FF2. Too freakin funny.
