Laurence Fishburne performs Perry White within the DC motion pictures, however that didn’t cease him from admitting the reality earlier this yr when he mentioned that Marvel has been “kicking [DC’s] ass” on the subject of the large display. Because it seems, Fishburne has been a Marvel fan for a very long time, telling Collider that he appreciated how the tales within the ‘60s and ‘70s mirrored what it was like for him to develop up in New York at the moment—however he in all probability didn’t have the proportional energy of a spider. Fishburne additionally advised Collider that he has wished to discover a half within the Marvel Cinematic Universe even earlier than he joined up with DC to play Perry White, and with a scheduling battle stopping him from showing in Justice League, he lastly observed a chance to go to the opposite facet of the aisle and see if Marvel might make room for him.
He says he pitched them one thing that “actually couldn’t work out” due to “authorized purple tape” (which means it was in all probability associated to Spider-Man or The X-Males), however the studio was apparently glad sufficient together with his enthusiasm that it supplied him a job in Ant-Man And The Wasp. He’s enjoying Invoice Foster, a man who used to work for Hank Pym, and within the comics he was one other size-changing superhero—at the least till his dying by the hands of a robotic Thor clone through the superhero Civil Warfare.
That’s not all Fishburne is doing with Marvel Studios, although. He says he’s additionally engaged on one thing else that he can’t discuss, however “it’s gonna be actually cool” and he hopes it would “change the world.” We do not know what he’s speaking about, however at the least it signifies that Marvel Studios’ future plans aren’t so set in stone that they’ll’t be tweaked to make room for some type of ardour undertaking from Morpheus himself. In fact, he doesn’t say “Marvel Studios,” so he might even be writing a comic book guide or designing an motion determine for all we all know.
