Terry Crews Says He’s “Game” to Lead Marvel’s Luke Cage Series


If you’re a Marvel fan, this is an exciting time. We’ve got Captain America: The Winter Solider about to hit theaters, Guardians of the Galaxy arriving this summer, and production about to begin in New York City on the first of five planned Netflix shows: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. In case you didn’t know, 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, which is likely the first to go into production, and Melissa Rosenberg is shepherding Jessica Jones. Details on the other shows, though, are forthcoming.

I like Terry Crews. I think he'd be awesome in that role.

NewMonday959d ago

sorry but this guy just doesn't have the charisma to be a Movie lead, B-list is as good as it gets for him.

the Rock would be perfect

after that Idris Elba

Calls Terry Crews B-list.
Suggests Dwayne Johnson.

Many laughs.

Your post needs some thought behind it. Crews would make a great Cage!

That said I would push Michael Jai White more.

NewMonday959d ago

sorry just cant take him seriously as leading actor

physically he fits the role, but he just doesn't have the screen presence.

I love Terry Crews, but I think Michael Jai White should get the part. He's a fantastic Martial Artist, a decent/good actor in the 'stong dude' category, and has more than enough charisma to play lead man.

@NewMonday. The Rock would be ridiculous. I like him, but not as a possible Luke Cage.

beereal360959d ago

Elba is already in the marvel universe in the Thor movies.

TheRealHeisenberg959d ago

The Luke Cage I remember was not a martial arts guy but Michael Jai White is an excellent suggestion. I'm not opposed to Terry Crews either.

maniacmayhem959d ago

Sounds good to me. I wish DC would resurrect Young Justice, Green Lantern:TAS as Netflix exclusives.

Porcelain_Chicken959d ago

Haha perfect! Kinda ashamed i didn't think of Terry as an option. He's definitely a fit look & acting-wise. The real question is, can he carry a franchise as a leading man?
