Howard Stern Accidently Drops Marvel Bombshell
Howard Stern is apparently joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he accidentally revealed on his SiriusXM show.
During a break in his show, the radio icon — who didn’t realize his microphone was still on — let slip that he’s part of Marvel’s upcoming “Doctor Doom” project, which has yet to be officially announced.
The bombshell occurred as Howard spoke with his show’s producer about booking potential guests for the show. He then said his schedule was booked solid for the summer.
“Are you working this summer?” co-host Robin Quivers asked Howard, to which he replied, “I told you, I’m going to do ‘Doctor Doom.'”
While this would be a major role for many people, Howard admitted that he’s not exactly enjoying the experience. “Believe me, I’m f****** miserable about it,” he said.
During the hot-mic moment, which TMZ obtained, the “King of all Media” told his crew that he reached out to Robert Downey Jr. for some acting tips, and he also asked his producer if he had “Iron Man” director Jon Favreau’s number.
Little is known about “Doctor Doom,” including whether it will be a film or a Disney+ series. There is also mystery surrounding which character Howard will play in the project.
