What do you think?
In an interview with Newsarama, Terry Crews talked about wanting to play The Thing in the Fantastic Four reboot. He was promoting his guest spot on Ultimate Spider-Man, where he voices Blade. Here are highlights:
On what he likes about Blade: "The aspects of Blade I've enjoyed most is how deep the character is. You're talking about a guy who straddles two worlds; he's a vampire who gets rid of evil vampires. That's kind of nuts. There's a certain dichotomy to Blade that's important, but in doing this with the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series you also have to do it for a children's audience; people sometimes forget that."
On doing more voice work: "I've been talking to my agent about doing more voiceover work for awhile now, because the best films I've seen in the past ten years have largely been animated. From The Incredibles to Iron Giant, they're doing some great things. Ultimate Spider-Man mixes animation with great comic book characters, and I couldn't pass it up."
On who he'd like to play in a comic book movie: "One character I always thought I could play is the Thing from Fantastic Four. Another character I've always loved as a fan is Colossus. If there was a way to make that happen that worked, I would love to be Colossus."
