Stan Lee Only Available In The Amazing Spider-Man For Xbox 360 And PS3

Earlier this week, reports revealed that Spider-Man co-creator, Stan Lee, would be playable in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man game, if you pre-ordered the game from Amazon. This morning, Activision made pre-order details a little clearer.


Stan Lee will only be available in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. If you pre-order either version of the game from Amazon, you’ll get to play as Lee, who will borrow some of Spider-Man’s abilities as he hunts for the pages of his latest script around Manhattan. Additionally, completing the mission will yield some sort of a “surprise” in connection with Spider-Man’s 50th anniversary.



The Stan Lee pre-order bonus will be in limited supply.


Meanwhile, ordering the game from GameStop will let you play as the Rhino, one of the villains in the game. This will be in the form of a timed mission of some sort, and will again be exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. This pre-order bonus, too, will be in limited supply, Activision say.


The Amazing Spider-Man will be released on June 26th in North America.

  • No… Don’t fall for it, Dominic… This couldn’t possibly be… a good liscensed game…?

       Survey says: Batman also had some great games lately.
      Also, some older Spider-man titles were actully good.

      I just hope this one will be in the Arkham-level of quality. I can hope, at least.

    Oh balls! I would’ve liked this for my 3ds :/

    •  The reason they didn’t added it on the 3DS version would be that the 3D effects would unleash him to our realm! Imagine millions of Stan Lees zipping around because millions of 3DS players were responsible for the Phenomenon!

    Okay, so, it’s going to be released in a month- any screenshots or video of the 3DS version? Or is it going to be another Metroidvania-styled 2D game?

    •  Wait…one of the spiderman games played like that ?

      • manobon

        Yeah, a couple of the DS Spider-Man games (I think it started with “Web of Shadows”?), along with Captain America, Green Lantern, Iron Man, Wolverine…I think that’s all of them.

    They should have bundled all the DLC together. I guess we’ll have to live with retailer exclusive DLC for years to come
