Terry Crews Wants to be…Silver Surfer?

February 1st, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



Sometimes you just can’t predict what people will say.

Take Terry Crews for example, he wanted to be Luke Cage for Marvel. When you look at him, you can see why, he honestly had the look and build of Luke Cage. Sadly, the role went to Mike Colter, but that didn’t stop Crews from stating who else he would like to be…

“It’s hard to pick a favorite superhero. I always did love Luke Cage, and I’m really, really happy about who they cast in the Netflix version of Luke Cage. So that’s something that’s already done. But you know who else I’d like to play? The Silver Surfer. I always LOVED – I thought I had the build, the body, I could get on that surfboard, and if they ever do a live-action version of Silver Surfer, I think that would be perfect for me.”

That would be interesting…right? To be clear though, the rights of Silver Surfer reside with the Fantastic Four, which is owned by Fox right now. So IF he were to do it…it would be Fox’s decision.
