Stan Lee was reportedly rushed to the hospital Sunday, but that certainly didn’t stop the 92-year-old from appearing last night at the Hollywood premiere of Ant-Man.
According to TMZ, Lee called 911 Sunday morning, complaining that he didn’t feel well, and was taken from his Hollywood Hills home to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. A representative for Lee wouldn’t confirm the report, but pointed EW.com to the comics legend’s attendance at the movie premiere.
On the red carpet, Lee appeared to be in fine form, wearing his signature khaki windbreaker and joking — and flirting — with Marvel’s on-camera host Tamara Krinsky. “All I want is an excuse to stand with my arm around you,” he said, adding to the camera operator, “Now, you take your time. Tell her we’re out of focus, we have to do it again a few times — you know, the usual.”
Asked about is cameo in Ant-Man, Lee admitted he hadn’t seen it yet, saying, “The only reason I came was to see my cameo!”
Lee, whose long list of Marvel co-creations of course includes Ant-Man and the Wasp, had a pacemaker implanted in 2012.
