With Luke Cage coming to Netflix, actors have been lining up stating they want to play the character.

The latest is Taye Diggs, as the actor appeared on Conan O'Brien stating he wants to play a superhero.

I would love to. That's one of the things I haven't gotten to do, yet. Just to be able to do that...you know that flying, and then they land. 

Diggs then shows an example, with Conan asking which hero.

Luke Cage. Growing up a poor black boy, you gravitate to the black superheroes. That's why I really loved Django Unchained. Because you never got to see the black dude - excuse me [laughs] - shoot up the white people... You never got to see that. He's always the buddy or the dude giving his life away [laughs].

Diggs is currently starring in the Murder In The First TV series.
