Idris Elba put his bid in to play Luke Cage, while at a Ghost Rider panel at Comic-Con this past weekend.
Elba, who describes his Ghost Rider character as a French, wine-drinking, warrior monk, said that he would like to do more comic book projects but next time in a starring role. He expressed this goal to play Luke Cage when asked what project he'd like to do.
However, according to Elba, the only way it will happen is if the fans express what they want and according to Comic Book Movie, the crowd went wild.
Never say never. Us Vixen ladies would love to see Mr. Elba in spandex fighting the bad guys.
