Back in April, actor Isaiah Mustafa not only expressed interest in playing Luke Cage on the big screen, but the Old Spice pitchman also revealed that he's already had a meeting with Marvel about the role. Now it looks like he's taken his casting campaign one step further, and created a short pitch video of himself as Luke Cage.
Posted on YouTube by "ultimatecomicfan" (and discovered via the ever-vigilant SuperHeroHype crew), the video offers a quick synopsis of Luke Cage's origin story, with Mustafa playing the framed former gang member who agrees to undergo an experimental treatment that grants him super-hard skin and enhanced strength. The video ends with Mustafa saying, "The world will know me as Luke Cage."
It's a short video (just 41 seconds), but you know what? It looks good enough that Mustafa's prediction doesn't seem all that far-fetched.
