Looks great doesn’t he?
Now, in an interview, Cranston has confirmed that he’d be interested in playing that role.
Speaking to UNILAD, he said: “Yeah he was, I hate to say genius, but he was the man who had tremendous insight into how to humanise superheroes, how to make them relatable and by giving them flaws, relatable human flaws, that made them accessible to audiences.
“And so he really had a natural sense of communication and an honest authentic way of writing that material that really drew the audience in in order to really invest in those characters.
“Sure, I would be interested in looking into that if someone has an idea of how to develop a tribute movie to the amazing Mr Lee.”
