Jamie Foxx Was "Approached" To Play LUKE CAGE

While speaking to IGN about his love of superheroes, the Amazing Spider-Man 2 actor reveals that he was approached to play Luke Cage, aka Power Man, "back in the day". Foxx also speaks about what drew him to comic book characters at an early age.


Fans have wanted to see Luke Cage brought to life on the big screen for quite a while; and although we are now getting a Netflix tv series featuring the character, at one point a movie was planned. Before the rights reverted back to Marvel Studios, John Singleton was on board to direct a Luke Cage movie at Colombia Pictures, and it seems Jamie Foxx may have been the man they wanted for the role. With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 due for home release this week, IGN have posted an interview with Foxx (Max Dillon/Electro) in which the actor reveals that he could possibly have played Cage "back in the day", He doesn't go into any details however, simply saying that things didn't work out.


Do you think Foxx would have made a good Luke Cage? Sound off below.
