Terry Crews Throws His Name Back In The Ring For LUKE CAGE
Last we had heard from Terry Crews, he was over the typical fan casting that put him up as Luke Cage AKA Power Man. Crews was of the mind set that he would like to create his own superhero to play. Or he even suggested to go the way of Wesley Snipes and take a character like Blade, who he described as broken, and turn him into a success.
All that talk was before Crews knew about the new Netflix series that would feature Cage, because now he’s has done a complete 180. While talking with Collider, Crews was asked again about the possibility of him bringing Luke Cage to life. “Anything can happen. All I know is scheduling and all that stuff, anything can happen,” he explained. “I’m open to all kinds of things, but who knows? Actually I took myself out of the Luke Cage running a while back, just because it was people trying to put people against each other. It was Idris vs. Michael Jai and I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, this is not even greenlit! Can we talk to Marvel? Why are you talking to me? Don’t put me against my homeboy for a movie that’s not existing.’ I said, ‘Take me out!’”
As of right now he hasn’t received any call regarding the role, and he even responded to criticism that said he is too old. “I’m like, ‘Man do my workout 20 years ago and we’ll talk about who’s too old,’” He joked.
He ended his comment about the topic by reiterating that anything can happen. He also had a little pitch to Marvel by saying, “I’m game. There are no rules. What’s up, Marvel? I’m right here, baby. I ain’t going nowhere. You know where I live!”
I know Cody, for one, would love to see Crews as Luke Cage as he picked him when he, Josh and myself did a Warriors Three casting on the character. I am, and always have been of the mindset that I wouldn’t mind seeing him in the role. He certainly has the look, and I think he would pull of the personality. While we don’t have any concrete casting new yet, make sure to keep it locked here at Comic Book Therapy for the latest on Luke Cage.
