Terry Crews STILL wants to be Luke Cage! And he thinks a Fast & Furious/Expendables mash-up movie is possible!

August 13th, 2014 by Marc Comments

We love Terry Crews… seriously, honest to god love.

And he is still trying to get the Luke Cage role… and we know Cage is still to be cast in the Marvel TV series at Netflix, so please, Marvel, give the man the gig!

Speaking to IGN, Crews said: “I would love to do Luke Cage. I heard they finally green-lit that whole thing and I would love to do something like that.”

Although he does admit that Cage isn’t the only superhero character he admires, but he is the one he wants to play: “I have so many. I have to go back to Luke Cage just because he was our Superman. There were no African-American superheroes out there. He was the first. He was the man. He was the one. The only example we could look at.

“I remember then seeing Falcon and a couple of others. Even in the D.C. Universe there was Cyborg. But Luke Cage was the original one where you said ‘This is me. This is my guy. This is the character.’ So he’s the equivalent to Superman for me. But I have plenty. Second to Luke Cage would probably be The Hulk. The Hulk was amazing.”

Not content with trying to get Marvel to hire him, he also spoke with Digital Spy about mashing the Fast and Furious franchise with the Expendables… come on, admit it, that could be amazing. He also says this is probably NOT the last Expendables movie…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
