Stan LeeStan Lee, legendary comic book writer and Marvel Comics maven, wants to be the Alfred Hitchcock of superhero films. No, not by directing them but by taking cameo roles in as many of the films as possible.

The still active and bouncy 86-year-old -- who has appeared in the 'Hulk,' 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' the 'Spider-Man' films, 'Daredevil' and 'The Fantastic Four' -- told Collider that director Jon Favreau asked him to do a cameo as Larry King in the upcoming 'Iron Man 2.'

The still active and bouncy 86-year-old -- who has appeared in the 'Hulk,' 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' the 'Spider-Man' films, 'Daredevil' and 'The Fantastic Four' -- told Collider that director Jon Favreau asked him to do a cameo as Larry King in the upcoming 'Iron Man 2.'

"It wasn't my idea," Lee said. "Jon told me to put on these suspenders and put on these heavy glasses -- you're Larry King -- and he told me what to say. I love doing cameos. I just keep hanging around the studio until they say, 'Come and do a cameo.' But I wasn't in 'Wolverine' 'cause they shot that in Australia."

For the upcoming 'Thor,' directed by Kenneth Branagh and scheduled for 2011, Lee was looking for a bigger role. "I was upset with the 'Thor' movie," he said. "I was sure I was a shoo-in to play Odin, the king of the gods and Thor's father. I met with the director and he promised me a cameo instead, but I don't yet know what the cameo will be."

With so much under his belt, the superhero icon has one new goal: to get a bigger cameo. Hollywood, are you listening?
