After the credits rolled in Disney’s Big Hero 6, we watched as Fred admired his family portrait hanging on the wall of his mansion. His father has a striking resemblance to Marvel creator, Stan Lee. Wishing he could share his superhero accomplishments with his father, Fred accidentally uncovers a secret room behind the picture frame that reveals a plethora of superhero costumes and weapons. While admiring the costumes, Fred’s father walks in and agrees with his son’s underwear usage. Once they decide they have a lot to talk about, the screen goes black.
The role of the father was voiced by the legendary Stan Lee.
Big Hero 6 made its first appearance in Marvel Comics in 1998. Since then, the band of heroes has shown up in its own animated film, TV series, and a brief Easter egg in Avenger’s Age of Ultron. Now, a new report says that Big Hero 6 is ready to make its first live-action debut in the MCU.
