Read it and weep true believers! Jean-Claude Van Damme, the lovable Belgian relic of kickboxing fame, wants to co-star in Joss Whedon’s AVENGERS 2, stating…
“It was my pleasure to meet Mr. Stan Lee back in 1994, along with Mr. Samuel & Mr. Victor Hadida! I read that Chris Hemsworth (star of “Thor” and brother of Liam Hemsworth, “The Expendables 2”) would like me to costar in “The Avengers 2” movie!
Well, it would be fun to play one of these types of amazing comic book characters again. By the way, I am a big fan of Marvel’s superhero Silver Surfer and also another heroic fictional character known as Doc Savage – the Man of Bronze!”
While I initially dismissed this statement as the attention hungry ramblings of an old, tan man, I’ve had a tiny change of heart. I don’t know if you fanboys and fangirls know this, but Damme’s a semi-legitimate badass. He’s one of the few 80’s action stars to actually smash faces in a sanctioned prize fight, and he even chased Steven “full-of-shit” Seagal out of a fancy schmancy Hollywood party after the latter issued a challenge.
And besides… the dude can actually act. And I’m not talking Arnold Schwarzenegger winks and smiles, I mean REALLY act. Just check out his flick JCVD inspired by his own life.
Well… on second thought… fuck it. Make him Iron Fist. Who else has this type of intensity…
