Stan Lee to Visit NIKITA

Stan Lee

You never know where comic book legend Stan Lee might pop up, and this time he’ll be making a cameo on the new CW series NIKITA. IGN reports that Lee will appear in the fifth episode, airing October 7.

It seems the idea for this guest appearance came when Nikita star Maggie Q met Lee at Comic-Con this July and they started talking. There are no details about Lee’s appearance or even if he will be playing himself or a character. As previously announced, though, Devon Sawa will also appear in that episode.

Lee is certainly no stranger to television. He voices the Mayor of Super Hero City in Cartoon Network’s The Super Hero Squad Show and has appeared in both Heroes and The Big Bang Theory, with a cameo on Eureka to come.

Nikita will premiere on the CW Thursday, September 9 at 9pm/8 central. You can find all the fall premiere dates and times here.
