Method Man Wants To ‘Kick-Ass’ In Nic Cage’s Upcoming Comic Book Movie

He’s a member of the seminal Wu-Tang Clan, one of the hardest-working rappers in the game and has the tough-as-nails street cred to back it up. So it’s probably surprising that in a money-down, hardcore comic book trivia game, our bet would be on Meth, no questions asked.

Owning an astonishing 25,000 comics, Method Man knows his stuff. During our interview, we covered everything from his upcoming graphic novel to “Secret Invasion” to his love for creators like Mike Mignola, Peter David and John Byrne. But there’s one title at the top of his pile right now, and that’s Mark Millar and John Romita Jr’s “Kick-Ass.” We’ve been covering it a lot lately, from the announcement of it becoming a film to the casting of Nic Cage. And hopefully soon you can add Method Man to the list; the MC-turned-actor is throwing his hat into the ring, enthusiastically hoping for the role of the “black cop.” Given his passion for the material we’d love to see it happen…tell us what you think in the comments below.
