picWill the world know Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Cage?!

Check out the following trailer, that hit the web, featuring Isaiah Mustafa as the Marvel Super Hero, Luke Cage.

From what we gather, Mustafa put this together to get the powers that be to take notice.

Isaiah Mustafa has appeared in the NBC show "Chuck" and also in various "Old Spice" commercials.

There has been talk of a Luke Cage movie for sometime with mention of scripts and drafts. Tyrese was thought to be in the lead for Luke Cage as of 2006, as he stated a re-write was in the works and did show some interest while filming Transformers. I suppose this could even be meant for a new new "Luke Cage" television show, as Disney is launching Marvel related ABC shows in the future, as well.

In the comics, Luke Cage was granted superhuman abilities, including enhanced strength and dense skin, participating in experiments while in prison. He's gone on to become a pretty popular character, including becoming an Avenger. The actor Nicholas Cage even took the name "Cage" from Luke Cage!
