SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Star Ben Schwartz Still Wants To Play Plastic Man, But Also Has A Marvel Character In Mind

Sonic the Hedgehog star Ben Schwartz has made no secret of his interest in playing Plastic Man, but the Flora & Ulysses actor has now revealed which obscure Marvel character he'd like to suit up as...

Ben Schwartz is perhaps best known for voicing the title character in Sonic the Hedgehog, though he can also be seen in this weekend's Flora & Ulysses (read our review by clicking here). 

A few years ago, Schwartz expressed an interest in playing DC Comics superhero Plastic Man. He admitted to having a pitch, but never actually wrote anything or presented it to Warner Bros. There have been rumblings since about plans for the character, though we recently learned that a female-led take is in the works. 

Now, though, it sounds like the actor has set his sights on a character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"There’s an unlimited number of people I’d love to play. There’s also a comic book series I loved when I was a kid called Slapstick, which is this little clown with a big old hammer," Schwartz revealed. "Earlier, this comic book outlet played a game like, ‘I’m gonna name two people and you tell me what’s real and what’s fake with Marvel Heroes.' And the first one was Slapstick and I took out my own comic book like, ‘I own it’ and it was a very wonderful moment for me."

Slapstick doesn't have a lot of history in the Marvel Universe, and outside a wacky movie like Deadpool 3, it's hard to say where he could appear. In the same interview, Schwartz noted that he'd also be open to playing a villain such as The Riddler; unfortunately, that role has been taken already! 

Who do you think the actor would be a good fit for in the Marvel or DC Universes?
