Stan Lee wants an 'Avengers Assemble' sequel to be created.

The US comic book writer - who is the former president and chairman of Marvel Comics - would love to see more characters such as Dr. Strange and Black Panther come to life if there is a follow up to the current movie.

Speaking in an interview with I Am Rogue, he said: ''Oh I'd be happy if they add Black Panther and maybe Dr Strange. Those two and probably Ant-Man, which I think they are working on. Maybe I'll play a little role in that.''

Stan - who co-created The Hulk, Thor and Iron Man, who is played by Robert Downey Jr. - admits he is still surprised that some of his characters have become movie stars, and he is ''amazed'' that 'Avengers Assemble' has been made into a motion picture before DC Comics have created a Justice League film.

He added: ''I never imagined I'd see any of my characters become movies. But this was a logical thing to do. It was smart. I'm amazed that DC didn't beat us to it with the Justice League. But you've got to hand it to Marvel.''
