Los Angeles: Comic legend Stan Lee has joked that the reason for the box-office debacle of Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" was his absence from the movie.
The 92-year-old former president and chairman of Marvel Comics also joked that the story of the latest movie was not discussed with him, reported Aceshowbiz.
"Well, it was probably because I didn't have a cameo in it. And they didn't discuss the story with me," Lee said jokingly.
"I haven't seen it yet, so I really can't comment," he added. Trank's "Fantastic Four" was one of the few Marvel movies Lee didn't appear in, as he has made dozens of cameo appearances in Marvel movies and TV shows.
