Controversy! When news broke that Avengers producer Kevin Feige expressed interest in seeing Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Luke Cage...and Johnson's response to that, fandom kinda lost it. Either some LOVE the idea, others completely HATE it. Me? I think it's cool, and in my opinion, he's the only actor that would make Marvel take a risk to really push a solo flick and/or a big Avengers appearance. Inspired by this and a really well done mock-up of a "Luke Cage" movie poster making it's rounds online, I decided to see what The Rock would look like as Cage in action figure form. I used the body of a Marvel Universe Absorbing Man as well as the head from a "G.I.Joe Retaliation" Roadblock. I really wanted to give him a steel girder accessory, but didn't have access to one, so I just kept the wrecking ball from the original figure. Though it's not my first choice, I think it would look really cool with him using that weapon onscreen.

If the most electrifying man in sports entertainment does get the role I thin kne would be like "finally th Erick has come to the mcu"
Looks cool, it's like the rock with the design of Luke from the ultimate spidey show

I agree, Terry Crews would be my personal ideal choice, but I've learned not to doubt Marvel's casting decisions. However, this is currently just talk and speculation. But, I think the main fear of it being Rock is that the movie would then basically become "Luke Cage and the Avengers". lol But, all that aside, this is a fantastic concept! He came out great! Wonderful job!

That's a big fear of mine of casting The Rock in the role. If some does spin out of the interaction between Feige and Jonhnson, let's hope they don't do that. Cage is a great character, but definitely doesn't need to be the focus of an Avengers flick. Terry Crews would be awesome, he really would. I just don't think they'd throw $100 million - plus his way for his own flick...but they DEFINITELY wouldn't make him the headliner of the Avengers! Thanks!

Great concept and figure! Though as for a choice for Cage's role , Terry Crews imho suits it perfectly...

Thanks! They should give Crews a shot!
