Jamie Foxx not keen on playing "Luke Cage" role!

Over a year ago,it became known to comic book fans that producer Neil Moritz was seeking out Jamie Foxx to play Marvel Superhero Luke Cage...

While promoting "Dreamgirls" on Saturday, Jamie Foxx told the IESB he would not be starring as Luke Cage in the long-gestating Marvel Comics film adaptation: "I don't think [it will happen]," the actor said.

Luke Cage, born Carl Lucas and once called Power Man, is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics superhero. Created by writer Archie Goodwin and artist John Romita, Sr., he first appeared in Luke Cage, Hero for Hire #1 (June 1972).


A streetwise youth, Cage was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit. He underwent an experimental procedure that granted him titanium-hard skin and superhuman strength. Cleared of his crime, he became a “hero for hire,” although, as a plot device, Cage was always forced by conscience not to take any money for his deeds. Later, he formed a business partnership with the martial arts hero known as Iron Fist. Through the groundbreaking series Power Man & Iron Fist, the two became one of the better-known superhero duos of the 1980s..
