Stan Lee was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital in California yesterday after suffering from shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat.
However, Stan is already out of the hospital and taking interviews.
He sat down with ABC 7 to give an update on his status. Watch:
He tells them, “All I really want to do is tell ya that I’m feeling great. I’m glad I spent that evening in the hospital. And it did me a lot of good. Now, I’m home and looking for new trouble to get into. You know, the usual.”
He continued, “I figured that a little check-up wouldn’t be bad for me. In fact, it turned out to be pretty good. It got me a lot of publicity. I didn’t realize the whole world was worried about whether I was in the hospital or not.”
While discussing his appearance at the Black Panther premiere Stan joked, “I’m always there cropping up. I’m always helping, aiding, assisting. I hope the world really realizes how much it owes to me.”
Stan Lee concluded, “I just intend to keep doing this as long as I can.”
Stan will most likely make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Black Panther film. He’s had cameo roles in every Marvel Cinematic Universe film as well as a number of Fox’s films with the X-Men and Fantastic Four and Sony’s Spider-Man films. He’s even appeared in Netflix’s Marvel television shows, but usually in pieces of art work and not an actual role.
