Jean Claude Van Damme Wants Avengers 2 Role
The muscles from Brussels is keen to enter Marvel Comics universe...
Action movie star Jean Claude Van Damme has expressed his interest in getting a part in superhero sequel Avengers 2.
"The muscles from Brussels" was responding to Chris Hemsworth's recent declaration that he'd like to see JCVD in the Marvel superhero franchise.
Writing on Facebook, Jean Claude said: "It was my pleasure to meet Mr Stan Lee back in 1994, along with Mr Samuel & Mr Victor Hadida!
"I read that Chris Hemsworth (Thor) would like me to co-star in The Avengers 2 movie! Well, it would be fun to play one of these types of amazing comic book characters again."
And he even dropped a couple of hints, just in case the Marvel execs couldn't think of a suitable role.
"By the way, I am a big fan of Marvel's superhero Silver Surfer and also another heroic fictional character known as Doc Savage - the Man of Bronze!"
Director Joss Whedon has said he hopes to "go deeper" in the new movie
