Stan Lee expected to appear in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as a citizen of Xandar

According to Epoch Times on Thursday, Marvel's own Stan Lee will be making a cameo appearance in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" as a citizen of Xandar. For those who have already seen the movie trailer, Gamora, Peter Jason Quill, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon had been seen making their way into their own jail cells when first they find their way to a line-up. Rhomann Dey, played by John C. Reilly, starts to spout off their rap sheep and proclaim they were all captured on the same planet in which Stan Lee's cameo character is inhabiting.

That being said, there could be a possibility that Lee could interact with the Guardians in some fashion, but in what fashion is unknown at this time. It is not even known what words will come out of his mouth either. Of course, in all the movies, Lee is always saying something amusing or funny, so fans will have to wait and see. He could even speak in Xandarian tongue, but one could only speculate. It could be possible that he could be obscurely disguised as a human in Xandarian make-up.

Lee has amused audiences in his recent appearance in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" as a security guard at the Smithsonian Institute and even on TV on ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Back in January he said he wouldn't partake in the cameo in the film given the fact he didn't write the comic book. Later on, he did mention he had some take in the story in creating the character of Groot. In fact, the Vin Diesel character made his first appearance in "Tales to Astonish #13".

The film's trailer introduces the characters in a biopic fashion, giving names and characteristics of each one. This is namely due in part that most of the general audience aren't really die-hard comic book fans and this introduction let's the audience become more familiar to the characters.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" is set to be released on Aug. 1 and stars "Parks and Recreation's" Chris Pratt, "Star Trek's" Zoe Saldana, "Fast and the Furious'" Vin Diesel, WWE's David Bautista, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.
