I've always said Terry Crews - as Bishop because he has the right build for it. I know he has been in alot of comedies and dont think he has been in a serious role but i really believe he has the right ability to portray Bishop, good thing about him is that he does serious acting but within a comedy role. so its there if the tone of the movie is serious he would be greate.

Kevin Grevioux: He's an actor, and he writes X-men comics. Perfect!

I use to say Wesley Snipes back before he became "Blade" but in my opinion I would want to see Michael Jai White as Bishop.

Every week when I watch House I picture Omar Epps at Bishop. Don't know why, but it works for me.

Thanks. I think Epps is in the right age range for Bishop and he has the right look.

^He reminds me of when Larroca used to draw Bishop in X-Treme.
Do you think they could put Bishop in X-men First Class? I would love that.

I honestly don't foresee Bishop appearing in any X-Film anytime soon. He's just gonna be a difficult character to bring into that universe.

There are ways and means of bringing the character in to the films. However, I don't reckon he'll appear. If they go the timetravel route, they have to be careful not to make it too much like Heroes. If they go a different route, they have to be careful not to annoy the fans too much.

And thats the problem. They can't bring him in and have him Comic book accurate with out confusing the GP and if they don't make him comic accurate the fans will **** all over it. Bishop and Cable are going to be very very hard to translate on film.

If Omar Sy is not playing Bishop, I want Edris Elba.
