Collider.com caught up Terry Crews (The Expendables) and addressed a lot of internet chatter and rumors on whether or not he was in the running for Marvel’s Luke Cage. Now Luke Cage is one of the 4 different mini series that will air on Netflix for Marvel. The cool thing about these four character driven mini series is that they will culminate in yet another series called The Defenders. The characters featured here on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. All four of them have close personal ties to one another and cross pollination for the characters is a certainty. Crews comes into the mix because he is an ideal choice for Luke Cage. Below is excerpts from the interview with Collider.com.
“Anything can happen. All I know is scheduling and all that stuff—anything can happen. 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!’
“I heard [it’s greenlit] but I haven’t gotten any calls. I’ve been hearing stuff like, ‘oh you’re too old,’ and I’m like, ‘Man do my workout 20 years ago and we’ll talk about who’s too old (laughs).’”
“Like I said, anything can happen, I never rule anything out. I’m game. There are no rules. What’s up, Marvel? I’m right here, baby. I ain’t goin nowhere. You know where I live!” (laughs)
What do you think Maniacs? Is he too obvious of a choice? Who would you rather see?
