Following the huge success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there have been plans to try to spread that universe further afield, by bringing us a number of Marvel television series. It was confirmed a while back that Marvel has teamed up with Netflix to bring us a Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage series, with plenty of names already being linked to roles in the shows.
One such actor, who has seen his name being mentioned time and time again as a possible candidate to play Luke Cage, is none other than Terry Crews, who has become a bit of a fans favourite for the role. Terry recently admitted that, while there are some fans who feel he is too old to play Luke Cage, he would have no hesitation in accepting the role if it was offered to him.
Crews was chatting to Collider when he said, "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!"
While there are some fans who would not approve of Terry Crews playing Luke Cage in the planned Marvel and Netflix series, we would certainly not have a problem with it, as Terry could certainly do a good job in the role. It is not yet known what sort of age range they are going for yet though, so we will just have to wait and see.
