Terry Crews stated today that he would indeed be interested in playing the iconic role of Luke Cage in the upcoming 5-part Netflix TV Show deal that will also be featuring Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. At first, Crews was a bit skeptical on the part:
I took myself out of the Luke Cage running a while back. It was [just] people trying to put people against each other - Idris [Elba] vs. Michael Jai [White] and I'm like, wait a minute, this is not even green-lit. "Don't put me against my homeboy for a movie that's not existing," I said. "Take me out!"
But now that the character has been confirmed for an adaptation, he is more than ready to take on the part if offered.
"I never rule anything out - I'm game. What's up, Marvel? I ain't going nowhere!"
