Stan Lee Reveals His "Captain America: Civil War" Allegiance

Thanks to some leaked concept art, we know which heroes will be siding with Captain America and Iron Man when the two Avengers reach an ideological impasse in next year's "Captain America: Civil War." There's one legendary member of the Marvel Universe that wasn't included in that art, however, and he's finally weighed in on which hero he's throwing his weight behind. Yep, legendary Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee -- the man that co-created Iron Man and introduced Captain America to the Avengers -- told a crowd at the Edmonton Comic Expo where he stands.

"Whatever side Captain America was on, because he's the best, pure-hearted person in the whole world," answered Lee when a young fan asked about the division at the heart of the film. "By the way, he's a great actor, too, the guy who plays Captain America does a beautiful job -- Chris Evans. I say that because he likes me, and anyone who likes me is a great actor."

Lee will also have one of his trademark cameos in "Civil War," which he discussed briefly during an appearance in June. You can hear audio of the entire panel below. "Captain America: Civil War" opens on May 6, 2016.
