Amazon-Exclusive Spider-Man Preorder Bonus Lets You Play as the Amazing Stan Lee
Just look at it, folks. That's how you generate preorders right there. Amazon is going to be swamped.

I didn't believe it when Stan Lee said it back in March, and now that Activision's made it official I'm still not sure I believe it. And I call myself a true believer.

But yes, it is true. Players that preorder The Amazing Spider-Man from Amazon get a special series of missions featuring Stan "The Man" Lee. The legendary comic creator will take to the skies of Manhattan, borrowing Spider-Man's powers to keep his ancient sinews from snapping apart as he gracefully swings through the city, delivering witty banter in his signature style. Activision promises a special surprise at the end of the mission arc, perhaps something celebrating Spider-Man's 50th anniversary.

Meanwhile, at GameStop, store clerks will sullenly sit in sad silence as no one shows up for their Rhino Challenge preorder bonus, which lets players go on a rampage as Spidey's thick-skinned foe.

Stan Lee is great, but I really don't want to play as him.

If Stan Lee doesn't have a cameo and save a bystander in the new flick, I'll get a hernia

Stan Lee has already confirmed that he has a cameo in The Amazing Spider-Man. He says it's one of his funnier cameos.

Oh man Bruce Campbell better be an NPC or something. "Snooty Hot Dog Vendor" when Spider-Man needs to buy a hotdog to stop Mysterio from blowing up Coney Island.

I would pre-order if you get to do it with Mary-Jane.

The "surprise reward" they are talking about is a cutscene that shows Steve Ditko dying penniless and being buried in a pauper's grave.

You should contact Customer Service. I did when I didn't get my preorder bonus for Dragon's Dogma and got my code shortly after I contacted them.
