It’s not too often that we get to hear folks in Hollywood get negative on films they’re involved with — and we almost never hear anything negative come out of Marvel legend Stan Lee at all. Film is a medium that’s built on collaboration and at no point do producers, actors, or anyone else want to burn any bridges.

So when a little bit of honesty is brought into the equation, it’s always refreshing. Speaking with CBR, Lee opened up about one character he didn’t care for too much out of all the Marvel films.

“I was a little disappointed in the very first Fantastic Four, because I didn’t care for how Doctor Doom was portrayed. But other than that, I thought the movie was great. And the actors were terrific.”

That’s about the only semi-negative thing he said, because he then went on to praise the rest of the film.

“I believe they captured the spirit and the intent of all of the characters, and I’m delighted with how they all turned out. None of them have disappointed me. In fact, I think all of these movies have come out better than everybody ever thought they would…Even the early ones were good. Maybe I’m just my own biggest fan…”

While he may have point there, I’m sure there are plenty people would contest that claim, especially in the case of the Fantastic Four, but that’s just me.
