Idris Elba the Favorite to Star in "Luke Cage" Movie?

Idris Elba the Favorite to Star in "Luke Cage" Movie?Submit Comment
There are many actors who want to play Luke Cage in a film that Marvel has been planning, including Isaiah Mustafa, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Brian J White, Tyrese Gibson and Idris Elba.

Some of the actors have spoken to Marvel, but it seems that Elba is the studio's favorite. During the San Diego Comic-Con, Elba was asked what projects he would like to appear in. He took a deep breath and a dramatic pause, and then said in a deep voice: "Luke Cage."

The crowd went wild. Elba added: "We [Marvel] just need to know that you [the fans] want that."

Sounds like Elba is speaking on Marvel's behalf, which may mean that he has discussed the project with the studio and the two are now seeing if the fans want a "Luke Cage" film.

Elba is a bad mofo. Talk about commanding screen presence.

Don't know or care about Luke Cage but still that can't be a bad choice.

But he's already Heimdall. C'mon now.

That will be comic book number 3 for Mr Elba.
Good actor though.

Always thought he was the obvious choice for the part. Hopefully he can bring the same presence Wesley brought to Blade.

Ryan Reynolds and Chirs Evans can play multiple comic book hero's why can't he?

Idris Elba was great as Heimdall in Thor and I think he is a great choice for Luke Cage but I think my another choice besides him would be Cuba Gooding Jr., I think he should play Luke Cage, well I mean he can do a Robert Downey Jr. style comeback as a superhero.

Still he is a Oscar winner, I think my top choices would be Idris Elba, Terry Crews and Michael Jai White, all these guys are great actors and have the skills to be Luke Cage.

Idris Elba is awesome!

Idris Elba is a good actor, but I have 0 interest in Luke Cage. Such an uncharismatic super hero in the Marvel Universe. Make a movie about his partner, Iron Fist, instead. That would be more interesting!

@Bad: It's not so bad for Reynolds and Evans because the characters they play come from different studios, so even though it's stupid, it's forgivable.

It shouldn't be in this case, since it's from the same studio, whose movies are now in the SAME universe. So... it's pretty f*ckin' retarded, in this case, and in my opinion.

I think it's f*cking hilarious that he didn't try to do a 'audition scene' like the Old Spice Guy and some other bulky non-actor did.

well the way i see it with the way hollywood has a reputation for remakes and sequels, why not just make two movies and switch actors so the audience can have it both ways and nobody can complain?...that way hollywood can satisfy themselves with money and fans can get what they want at the same time

I wish he would have played Jango Fett in the SW prequels,this guy is scary,more so than Temura Morrison.
And no I'm not being sarcastic.
