Professing his love for all things Marvel and Stan Lee, he said:

“I read that Chris Hemsworth would like me to co-star in The Avengers 2 movie! Well, it would be fun to play one of these types of amazing comic book characters again.

“By the way, I am a big fan of Marvel’s superhero Silver Surfer and also another heroic fictional character known as Doc Savage – the Man of Bronze.

“It was my pleasure to meet Mr Stan Lee back in 1994, along with Mr Samuel and Mr Victor Hadida.”

The Avengers was a box office smash last year, taking an astonishing $1.5 billion globally. The sequel, which is also being scripted and directed by Joss Whedon, is slated for release in May, 2015.
