Stan Lee, the man who created many of our favourite superheroes, is just as excited as you are about Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Tom Holland’s latest iteration of the web-slinger debuted in Captain America: Civil War, winning over legions of fans who thought it was too soon to replace Andrew Garfield.

Speaking about Holland, Lee said at a live Q&A (via Comic Book Resources): “Oh, he's wonderful! I was with him the other day. He is great! I can't believe it. It's as if we created a living being to be Spider-Man, and it turned out to be him.”

When further asked about his upcoming Marvel cameos, Lee was unable to say which films he would be appearing but did confirm that his favourite ever cameo was recently filmed in Atlanta.

Meanwhile, the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming has increased a lot recently, with Hannibal Buress, Donald Glover and Kenneth Choi joining the film.
