Chatting with Syfy, Lee shared what his dream Marvel movie would be and it centers around a character that wasn't exactly warmly received in its earlier incarnation.

"Bigotry and racism are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today", wrote Lee nearly 50 years ago.

"He's the one I want to see more". While discussing the event Lee was asked which character he would like to see in a movie.

Lee has long had ambitions for a Silver Surfer movie - in 1978, Marvel announced that a feature film based on a treatment by Lee was in development.

Stan Lee has had the honour and privilege of seeing over a dozen of his creations come to life on the big screen. He's the most philosophical of all the characters I've ever worked on. Alongside the gluttonous Galactus, the Silver Surfer is still zooming around somewhere in the dark abyss of Fox's undeveloped characters that it refuses to let go of.

Lee, who helped create some of Marvel's most renowned superheroes including Spider-man and X-Men, wrote that while people were allowed to dislike one another for individual actions, only irrational people would spread hate onto an entire group. Daredevil reverted to Marvel Studios and the Surfer remains with Fox. Playing a huge part in the "Infinity Gauntlet" saga from the comic books, the Silver Surfer's absence will surely be felt in the MCU when the Russo brothers bring #InfintyWar to our screens next year. As you'll no doubt remember, Doug Jones played him in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, a wholly forgettable affair that didn't do the character justice.
