A while back, “Brooklyn Nine Nine” actor Terry Crews petitioned for the role of Luke Cage in Netflix’s upcoming series, a role that ultimately went to Mike Colter.
In a recent Reddit AMA, Crews is turning his desire towards another Marvel superhero – The Silver Surfer. Asked about his love of superheroes, he says:
“It’s hard to pick a favorite superhero. I always did love Luke Cage, and I’m really, really happy about who they cast in the Netflix version of Luke Cage. So that’s something that’s already done. But you know who else I’d like to play? The Silver Surfer. I always LOVED – I thought I had the build, the body, I could get on that surfboard, and if they ever do a live-action version of Silver Surfer, I think that would be perfect for me.”
Will he get that chance? Hard to say, though Fox (not Marvel Studios) has the rights to use the character.
