Tyron Woodley Teases Roles In BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DOJ And ANT-MAN

The UFC welterweight fighter (who recently appeared in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) has decided to put some more focus on his acting career, and while talking to Fox Sports he reveals that he might just be gearing up for roles in both Marvel's Ant-Man, and DC's huge Bats/Supes face-off too..

Could we see UFC's Tyron Woodley in a couple of the big upcoming CBMs from both DC and Marvel? The mixed martial artist went to war in the Octagon with Rory McDonald, but now it seems the fighter will be looking to focus more on his acting career. During the Great MMA Debate podcast (via Fox Sports), Woodley revealed that although he thought his schedule wouldn't allow it, he may well now be able to take roles in Ant-Man and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.



"I had a couple of projects that I wasn't going to be able to do because they were going into this training camp, but the good thing about movies sometimes the budget's sometimes off and they have to reschedule things so there's three big projects that I'll get to work on directly after this fight. I've got a Marvel and a DC project I should be able to jump on and continue my career there as well.Man of Steel 2 (title is now 'Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice), I've got some calls about doing that so I would love to take advantage of that if the timeframe works out. There's another movie called Ant-Man that's coming out and I might be able to get some work on that as well. I'd like to do both and I think I'll be able to."

Sounds like things might just work out, and if the timing allows it, who could Woodley be playing? In all likelihood it wouldn't be a major character of course -- chances are they'd actually be stunt-focused roles..but you never know! Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming in Detroit for principle photography, and the movie will hit theaters May 6, 2016. Ant-Man will be released on July 17, 2015.

Who? And why does these wrestlers get film roles without any experience? Unless they just need someone to look buff, I dont get it.
wallhead - 6/15/2014, 11:02 AM
@tuuralihn

he isn't a wrestler. he is a fighter. there is a difference. u should learn it. anyway Woodley is garbage nevertheless. he always looks good against fodder but when a real fighter comes along like rory his flaws start to show. good for 1 round, with a big knockout that's about it. he should prob focus on acting.

John Stewart O.o?
BoneSawIsReady - 6/15/2014, 11:04 AM

DEVLIN712 - 6/15/2014, 11:06 AM
Maybe he was lined up for Cyborg but the schedule clash made him drop out?
DaVinci31 - 6/15/2014, 11:06 AM
Agreed. It has to be for stunt work.
AlexanderLykins - 6/15/2014, 11:06 AM
Interesting. For some reason I immediately thought Darkseid.
DEVLIN712 - 6/15/2014, 11:07 AM
@DaVinci

An agent of SHIELD in Ant-Man and a military man in Dawn of Justice.
SuperCat - 6/15/2014, 11:12 AM
Don't watch much ultimate fighting so I'm not sure who this guy is.
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/15/2014, 11:13 AM
Eh, maybe. Not all fighters can act. You say he appeared in Agents of SHIELD? Who was he?
BatzFTWfan - 6/15/2014, 11:19 AM

Can't stand McDonald...something about him bugs me.
BatzFTWfan - 6/15/2014, 11:22 AM
i'd see him as Static, but Bill is higher chance, making him a friend of Lang.
dio - 6/15/2014, 11:23 AM

wallhead - 6/15/2014, 12:29 PM
@batman52

that is not huge. ur probs just small. he has a broad chest. that's about it. shoulders week. arms, basic. that's not batman. that's middle age man who probably plays squash and does push ups when he can. ur lost.
wallhead - 6/15/2014, 12:29 PM
weak*
Inhuman - 6/15/2014, 12:31 PM
I take it that the actor knows more than us and he called BVS "Man Of Steel 2" so going by what he said, I don't think theres a Man Of Steel 2 coming after BVS and it actually might be Man Of Steel 3. DC has been promoting this movie as a Superman centric film with all Superman villains and no Batman villains so I think that rumor about the DC movie lineup having "Man Of Steel 2" is BS and BVS has always been Man Of Steel 2
Brainiac13 - 6/15/2014, 12:38 PM
TheBaroness

I reported you just to make that pic disappear.......thats 100x worse than a pic of Dog shit.......so delete the comment.....which should delete the report.

;)
ManCalledSting - 6/15/2014, 12:42 PM
Okay, as an asshole who occasionally sends my buddy a glorious duece pic once in a while, well done. But I agree with brainiac.
Sipprelle - 6/15/2014, 12:46 PM
I just (fricking) puked at that photo. WAS THE (FRICK)
Batman52 - 6/15/2014, 12:46 PM
@wallhead For a 6'3 man that looks like Ben Affleck in those pictures yeah that's big. Like he doesn't need to get like Hulk size or anything, but just the way he is now is good.
wallhead - 6/15/2014, 12:57 PM
@batman52

hey maybe ur right. im not sayin he needs to be the hulk...I dunno..to me the essential bruce wayne has to come of as physically imposing. the type of man that takes care of himself to the point that in his late thirties he should look like he can hang with the youngers. ben Affleck doesn't look like that. he looks like average joe. the type of guy who u go up to and say "hey buddy, you been workin out? nice". when u should really be sayin damn, ur a beast, how long have u been workin out for?
wallhead - 6/15/2014, 12:58 PM
don't tell me there arent guys out there like that. and ben can def get to that point. im not saying he cant.
