Terry Crews: No Interest in Playing Luke Cage

Crews Has No Interest in Playing Luke Cage

Movie News

While there may be a few African-American Marvel superheroes around, there hasn’t been a movie based on such a superhero. Although Vin Diesel may have been tied to Black Panther, a Luke Cage movie starring Terry Crews would seem more obvious to make. On many occasion, Crews has been asked by media whether he’d like to play the character, otherwise known as Power Man, and has long replied with a similar response: “I’d love to!” In a more recent interview, however, Crews has expressed his disinterest in the role, saying that Luke Cage has been ignored by Marvel, and, therefore, has no further interest. This is the response he gave to Blackfilm when asked about it:

“I’m trying to take myself outta that running. Because everybody’s like, ‘I want to play this superhero character, that superhero character’. I’d rather make up my own. Make a brand new one, you know. I think everybody’s is forcing this ‘Power Man,’ Luke Cage thing. Man, it’s obvious, Marvel, for some reason, is not getting down with it. He’s being ignored.”
