Since he found out Marvel was interested in bringing Luke Cage to the big or small screen, Old Spice spokesman Isiah Mustafa has been petitioning online for the part, as he thinks it’s one he’s born to play.
He’s shot some promotional stills, worked with Marvel, and done a few other things to attempt to prove himself, and now there’s a brand new viral teaser hitting the web showing Isiah in the tank top and chains as Power Man himself, Luke Cage. The Daily Blam brings us up to speed:
Several months ago, reps for Marvel Studios hinted that a Luke Cage film or television series was in the works. Since then, TV personality Isaiah Mustafa has been publicly pursing the role, going as far as to pose for unofficial promotional images. The actor also revealed that he has gone as far as to speak with the studio about the possibility of portraying the hero: “I’ve already had a meeting with Marvel. I talked to them and I told them that I was a gracious reader of their comics and that I wanted to be Luke Cage. So we’ll see where they take it.”
Now we’ve got a taste of what Mustafa is really made of when it comes to playing Luke Cage as a new teaser has hit the web. Is this a teaser for an unannounced Luke Cage film? a TV show? A webseries? Nobody knows just yet. All we know is that it looks pretty bad ass. Check it out after the jump.
