With Marvel moving forward with a Luke Cage Netflix series, Terry Crews once again lets it be known he is interested in playing the character.

Back in March, Crews mentioned he was "game" to play Luke Cage, and now at the premiere for The Expendables 3, he says more of the same.

Via IGN:

"I would love to do Luke Cage. I heard they finally green-lit that whole thing and I would love to do something like that.

"I have to go back to Luke Cage just because he was our Superman. There were no African-American superheroes out there. He was the first. He was the man. He was the one. The only example we could look at.

"I remember then seeing Falcon and a couple of others. Even in the D.C. Universe there was Cyborg. But Luke Cage was the original one where you said ‘This is me. This is my guy. This is the character.’ So he’s the equivalent to Superman for me. But I have plenty. Second to Luke Cage would probably be The Hulk. The Hulk was amazing."

Presently, Marvel is filming the Daredevil Netflix series and has yet to make additional announcements regarding Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones or The Defenders.

The Expendables 3 is in theaters August 15th.
