I can almost swallow Singleton directing Luke Cage. There are much better directors out there, but maybe, just maybe, he could do it justice. But the fact he's indicated that Tyrese and he are a package deal really turns me off to Singleton directing completely. Tyrese is a crappy actor, and he'd be a horrible Luke Cage.
And it annoys me all the more because the perfect Cage is out there in Henry Simmons
. He's got the height, the build, the chops. Put a quality cast around him and I've no doubt it could sell.
I can only hope that with Marvel getting the rights back, they'll decide to go in another direction, maybe Heroes for Hire as a superhero-Rush Hour.
I agree 2000%! I use to say give Singleton a chance at making the movie but now the more I think about Tyrese playing Luke Cage, the more I don't want to even see the movie get made. Dude looks NOTHING like Luke and he's really a paperthin actor if you catch my drift. If Singleton just has to get Tyrese, I'd rather him not make the movie at all.
Avi Arad is basically a cuss word for me. When I heard he was producing Naruto, I was like, "That Avi Arading son of an Arad!"
