Leonardo DiCaprio wants to play Stan Lee in a biopic

But according to Business Insider, that's's not the only comic book movie Leo's got his eye on.

If he's as big a Marvel nut as Lee claims ("he has all the walls covered with big Marvel posters and everything"), then he may find all this speculation linking him to the Joker Origin movie a tad tiring. "So, I went home and I thought and thought and I came up with the X-Men and I mentioned it to him the next day and he said, 'that's okay" and as I walked out of his office I thought, that was very peculiar.

The 94-year-old Lee said: "Believe it or not, I've already discussed it with Leonardo DiCaprio. If nobody would know what a mutant is, how will anybody know what an X-Man is?' But he had okayed the name and I used it".

Of course, Goodman was a hugely important figure in the history of Marvel Comics.

Lee teamed up with legendary comic artist Jack Kirby on the X-Men, which debuted with The X-Men #1 in 1963. He founded Timely Comics in 1939, which was rebranded as Marvel in 1961. Conceived as a group of teenagers born with special abilities, the X-Men originally consisted of five young mutants: Cyclops, Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Ice-Man, Angel and the Beast. As the team expanded to include characters such as Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler and Colossus, the X-Men's popularity soared. He remained the publisher until 1972, when he was replaced by his son. Shortly after, Stan Lee succeeded him as president.
