Nah, f**k that. Luke doesn't need to be anywhere near The Avengers roster. Panther deserves it more than he does.


If he appears in the MCU first, fine. But if he's in TA2 and Panther is not, then that's grounds to burn down Marvel Studios.

I would actually prefer having Fury or Stark show up in the Cage movie and approach him about joining up, only to be shot down.

I hope Luke is approached in a post credits scene, cause much like Hulk, his movie could be risky

First I think The Rock could be a great Luke Cage and secondly I love the idea of Fury offering him a spot on the Avengers and him turning him down. Would be a great scene.

I desperately want Cage, but not so much The Rock. He's too....meh.

The Rock is not like Nic Cage. Sorry but they are really two completely different actors.

I'm kind of torn on Dwayne Johnson as Luke Cage. I'm literally working through both my acceptance and reservations on this proposed casting as I type.

On one hand, someone as high-profile as The Rock being attached to a Luke Cage or even Heroes for Hire project could have a similar effect as Edgar Wright did for Ant-Man; in that, there would be very few barriers to getting the film green-lit. The Rock does ooze charisma. His performance as Roadblock in GI Joe 2 was probably the only redeeming aspect of that movie, and I actually bought him as a black character.

However, I've never actually thought of Johnson as being 'black'. Luke Cage's African American-ness (in my mind) is his defining trait. It speaks to both his anti-authoritarian stance as well as his need to do good for his community, especially to help the poor and down-trodden.

Hmm, I clearly need to give this more thought.

I love Dwayne Johnson is just about anything he is in, he has tons and tons of charisma. That said, I am really married to the idea of Terry Crews as Luke Cage.

My thought would be having him bring up how SHIELD/the government and the so-called heroes let two monsters destroy Harlem while he was locked up, now they want him to join up. He either turns them down or slaps a piece of paper down on the table in front of Fury and says "There's no way I'm signing up for your little team, but next time something is going down in New York, this is my hourly rate."

Yeah. I like SHIELD just fine, but Luke Cage doesn't really belong on the Avengers or with SHIELD. In the MCU, his role would actually be similar to that of Spider-man, in that he is the guy who deals with the street level affairs other heroes can't/don't, and is respected for doing such. To steal from Aberrant, the Avengers are Team Tomorrow; Luke Cage would be the city defender of NYC.

The Rock as Luke Cage would be a win on so many levels.

Now get him some ass kicking Iron Fist and we've got a movie

He's too commercial. I want a really good, proper actor.

I don't believe there is such a thing as good acting, it's just a way to over-complicate the job on certain actors

This makes a hell of a lot more sense than Namor or Black Adam I keep seeing him suggested for. I still don't know why people want him for those roles. That would be like Jason Statham playing Ra's Al Ghul.

He is really good a playing the everyman hero who just happens to be jacked and has an underrated sense of humor. Luke Cage in a nut shell. Certainly has the physicality. He's a big name with a decent enough draw. I don't know how much he gets paid but he hasn't had that many box office smashes so I bet his paycheck hasn't ballooned too much.

According to their heights on the internet (don't know if they are true) The Rock is only an inch taller than Hemsworth so I don't think he would tower over him. They could probably write around Rock's bigger muscles though. Thor is magically stronger than he looks, while Luke Cage was made stronger through science so his physical appearance matches his actual strength level.

Maybe, I dont know.

He could physically be a great looking Black Adam

The Rock was my fave choice several years ago, but not so anymore. His physical appearance alone is enough to be considered, but I'd rather Marvel go with someone who looks more like Cage in the comics.
