Terry Crews On Playing Marvel Hero For Netflix
The Expendables star says he'd be honoured to portray Luke Cage in TV series...
Terry Crews has put himself firmly in the frame to play Luke Cage in the Netflix adaptation of the Marvel Comics series.
The star of The Expendables 3 and Brooklyn Nine-Nine told Digital Spy that he "would be honoured" and "privileged" to play the comic book hero.
Netflix is planning a series of online-only adaptations with Marvel - the first of which is Daredevil, due next year.
"It could be, I'm waiting for a call from Marvel. I mean, I haven't heard anything but if I could and if it worked into the schedule.
"But I have to say it's something I would be privileged and honoured to do. Luke Cage is up there with Superman for a lot of people."
Cage first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1972, at the time of the Blaxploitation movie boom.
