Looks like if you Pre-order The Amazing Spider-Man from Amazon, you will be able to play as Stan Lee. This is a PS3 and Xbox 360 only Unlockable.
For the first time ever, fans will be able to play…STAN…LEE as himself in The Amazing Spider-Man. Players will take on the role of Stan “The Man” Lee in his own special mission across Manhattan, borrowing abilities from his old pal Spider-Man as they help Stan collect pages of his latest script in a spectacular race around Manhattan. Stan’s mission is punctuated with his witty banter that fans have come to know and love, and a special surprise waits for them at the end of the mission – after all, it is Spider-Man’s 50th anniversary this year! While supplies last. Limited time only.
Now, if you do it through GameStop, you will get The Rhino Challenge (Unlockable for PS3 and Xbox 360 only too).
Take control of the massive, genetically engineered villain RHINO and rampage around Manhattan in an exclusive gameplay challenge of pure destruction! As Rhino, players will be able to unleash his formidable powers to destroy anything and everything that gets in his way in a timed event full of speed, combo streaks, and of course, a ton of things to break! While supplies last. Limited time only.
This is what Stan Lee said about this:
The game will be releasing on June 26 in the US and on June 29 in Europe for 3DS, DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.“I’m just afraid when they see me do it, that may put Spider-Man in the shadows,” he told Yahoo. “I hope they don’t have me looking too realistic and life-like. That would be tough for the Spider-Man fans. I swung through the city like an average guy would do, instead of giving it my usual derring-do.”
