The actor Terry Crews, who was pegged for years as being Marvel’s Luke Cage, still retains a desire to play a super hero in the popular universe. But it’s not one you’d likely have expected. Crews has gone the total opposite direction to Cage, saying that he thinks he’d be a great Silver Surfer. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in “Fantastic Four #48”, and is a cosmic space deity, who plays the role of herald to the planet eater, Galactus.
In a Reddit AMA, Crews was asked ‘Favourite Super Hero, and who would you want to play the most?’ To which, the man replied:
“… it’s hard to pick a favorite super-hero. 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.”
We’d love to see a jacked up Surfer, and depending on the success of the upcoming FF reboot, it might not be too far-fetched. Heck, he may even land that solo movie that’s been rumoured for ages, especially with his recent popular solo series. We can only hope.
