Comic book legend Stan Lee is a playable character in forthcoming movie tie-in The Amazing Spider-Man.

The 89-year-old Spider-Man creator confirmed the news himself during an interview with Addict of Fiction.

Precise details as to exactly how this will work are yet to be confirmed by publisher Activision or developer Beenox.

The game is due out on every platform under the sun from 29th June - one week before the movie of the same name swings into cinemas.
