Quinton “Rampage” Jackson may appear as Luke Cage in the movies. The fighter is negotiating with the American publishing company responsible for the film, to play the part in one of the adaptations of the comic “The Avengers”.
“I had a meeting with Marvel… I don’t know if I can say that! But I’d love to play Luke Cage; I think that would be perfect. It would be incredible to be Luke Cage, no one would be more incredible than me,” he is quoted as saying on SporTV.com.
The fighter is committed to his career as an actor, having performed 12 times. One of his roles was that of B.A. in the A-Team remake.
But before joining the cinema, Quinton Jackson has a meeting set with Jon Jones, getting a shot at the light heavyweight belt at UFC 135 in September in Colorado.
