‘Expendables 3’ star Terry Crews open to ‘Luke Cage’ role in new Marvel series

While promoting Tyler Perry’s The Single Mom’s Club, The Expendables star Terry Crews was about the role of Luke Cage in a new Marvel series.

“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?” Crews sasys to Collider in a March 10 article.

“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 (Elba) vs. Michael Jai (White) 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!’”

Since then five planned Netflix shows: DaredevilJessica JonesLuke Cage, and Iron Fist

“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)

Collider details the plan by Marvel: ”

Marvel and Netflix have teamed up to produce 52 one-hour episodes based on the Marvel characters, encompassing the four individual series (13 episodes each) and one four to eight-episode mini-series (dubbed The Defenders) that teams up all of the aforementioned characters and revolves around their exploits in Hell’s Kitchen.  The Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard is spearheading Daredevil as the writer and director of that series.”
