He's had cameos and even small speaking roles in nearly every modern Marvel movie adaptation across all studios, so it was only a matter of time before Marvel living legend Stan Lee showed up on the small screen in ABC’s Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., right?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lee – who also serves an Executive Producer – has confirmed he will appear in an upcoming episode of the weekly series. Though not identifying the role (is the ascot a clue?), Lee told the Hollywood trade it will be a "big role."
The episode is tentatively scheduled to air Feb. 4.
Next up: How Marvel Studios and director James Gunn places him in the far-out-there space saga Guardians of the Galaxy and then Netflix’s Defenders series of mini-series.
And while you're here, here's a clip from tonight's new episode, "The Magical Place."
