Jean-Claude Van Damme Wants In On THE AVENGERS 2

Upon learning about the idea from an original Avengers cast member, veteran action star Jean-Claude Van Damme says he’d be open to starring in Joss Whedon’s sequel, naming his fave heroes.

While there wasn't enough “machismo” in The Avengers for The Expendables 2’s Dolph Lundgren, his co-star and fellow veteran action star Jean-Claude Van Damme would be game for a role in Marvel’s 2015 sequel. Revealing so via Facebook, the Belgian martial artist / actor wrote:

“It was my pleasure to meet Mr. Stan Lee back in 1994, along with Mr. Samuel & Mr. Victor Hadida! I read that Chris Hemsworth (star of "Thor" and brother of Liam Hemsworth, "The Expendables 2") would like me to costar in "The Avengers 2" movie!

Well, it would be fun to play one of these types of amazing comic book characters again. By the way, I am a big fan of Marvel's superhero Silver Surfer and also another heroic fictional character known as Doc Savage - the Man of Bronze!”


Although very little is known about The Avengers sequel, writer-director Joss Whedon has said to expect a couple new characters when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes reassemble. Even if nothing works out for Van Damme, he does indicate that he’d like to play any superhero. What do you think?



Marvel Studios already describes their highly-anticipated sequel to the No. 3 highest grossing film of all time, “Marvel's The Avengers,” as another “big cinematic event.” And expected to feature the reassembly of iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow & Nick Fury taking on a new unexpected enemy, new additions to the superhero team up of a lifetime are possible.

Expecting reprisals from Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” sequel is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. And set for release May 1, 2015, the film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. In addition to the sequel, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; and “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014.

Too old. Not talentless though as most of you may think - check out J.C.V.D.
Dynamo - 3/18/2013, 10:49 AM
Haha! I think it'd be a laugh to give him a role. Even if it's just one of Thanos minions.
TheManFromMars - 3/18/2013, 10:51 AM
He may reprise his role as TimeCop

masterhater - 3/18/2013, 10:53 AM
Hell no. Sorry Van Dame but not a good fit.

batpod0718 - 3/18/2013, 10:58 AM

batpod0718 - 3/18/2013, 10:59 AM
Habababahabahba

SCURVYDOG619 - 3/18/2013, 11:18 AM
It's obvious: Van Damme as Batroc the Leaper.

*drops the mic and walks offstage*
DurtyTalynt - 3/18/2013, 11:18 AM
Grew up watching van damne and i liked his movies. Dont know where he would fit in but i wouldnt mind him involved. Another shield agent maybe?
thejon93rd - 3/18/2013, 11:21 AM
I thought he'd make a great Red Skull recast when I made this list: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fan_fic/news/?a=74689
HeadPool420 - 3/18/2013, 11:21 AM
He will be Antman! That way they don't have to cgi him to look short!;)
HeadPool420 - 3/18/2013, 11:23 AM
@MARVELPSYCHO79 Yeah he kept posting spoiler pics in the comment sections, then was telling people to go to another site not this one.

It must be a sad life if the only thing you live for is to troll Marvel articles all day. Dude go out get some fresh air, and enjoy the world. Contribute something to the world that you love and so you don't have to focus on everything you hate. Or just die already.
crashrendar - 3/18/2013, 11:24 AM
Iron fist
spidey1994 - 3/18/2013, 11:26 AM
Thanos maybe? I dunno!
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 3/18/2013, 11:27 AM
i lol'ed at first but jcvd as doc savage ain't bad at all.
TheSisko - 3/18/2013, 11:28 AM
This guy is actually a great actor and an even better fighter. I loved Time Cop, I only wish he had taken the time to develop an american accent for Street Fighter because he had the flash kick down pat.

HannibalKing - 3/18/2013, 11:29 AM
I'd buy to see JVCD as Doc Savage. That'd be a fun movie.
jessepostal - 3/18/2013, 11:30 AM

MrChuff - 3/18/2013, 11:30 AM

GreenLanternRulez - 3/18/2013, 11:31 AM
JCVD as Iron Fist!
ElBicho - 3/18/2013, 11:31 AM
@Anton

TOTALLY!!!

Before some of you bag on him, the dude can act his Belgan balls off. Go see JCVD!
SpoonWielder - 3/18/2013, 11:32 AM
Where did he read that Chris Hemsworth wanted him in Avengers 2?
Rhysno1 - 3/18/2013, 11:32 AM
Get him in as a cheeky cameo
Morbius - 3/18/2013, 11:33 AM
Get him as Danny Rad/Iron Fist
DiLusso - 3/18/2013, 11:36 AM
give him a white wig and make him... drum roll please...............................................................NORTH STAR
Bark4Soul - 3/18/2013, 11:36 AM
Haha, no idea who he would play but his stereotype would ruin Avengers 2
JoeMomma29 - 3/18/2013, 11:38 AM
LMAO! Remember him in this movie!!!



m0th3r - 3/18/2013, 11:40 AM
not a chance in hell...
StupidSexyLockon - 3/18/2013, 11:40 AM
I usually hate these types of articles and the idiots who post in them but I have a fondness for JCVD. BRING HIM ON.
CrowPirate1 - 3/18/2013, 11:44 AM
To think of Van Dumb in Avengers 2 is like putting Steven Seagal in anything ... anywhere. I was excited at Jackie Chan being thought of for Expendables 3. Sooooo glad they didn't go the Seagal route also.

Sorry Jean-Claude, but just because you met someone, don't mean you are right for a movie.

But I have to admit, after watching Expendables 2, I am finally getting to the point where I can understand what the hell you say on screen now without asking for subtitles to scroll. That's a honest true compliment here, dude!
BlackAmerica - 3/18/2013, 11:46 AM
Let him be wonder man.
thewolfx - 3/18/2013, 11:47 AM
Who's a old friench superhero or villian with martial arts skillz
2gold - 3/18/2013, 11:49 AM
Let him appear as Shield agent number 4...who Thanos turns to dust.
