Marlon Wayans has reveal that he dreamed of playing Plastic Man in live-action movie. The comedian and actor made the reveal in recent interview with Screen Rant.
“I would love to play Plastic Man. I think he works with the comedic skill set that I have, in terms of how I’m physical, I’m bendy. And I think it’d be cool to just do it without… You know, what’s great about Black Panther is he’s a black superhero, right? But sometimes [it’s fun] to just do something. Like, you wouldn’t think Plastic Man was a black guy, but it’s not black – it’s just, he’s plastic. I think it’d be fun for me, because I know I got to add my humor to it. The only two superheroes I ever really wanted to play was Plastic Man and The Mask. Those are the two superhero films I would love to play.”
Last year there were rumors that a possible Plastic Man movie was in early stage of development with screenwriter Amanda Idoko. The live-action movie adaptation was said to be based off of the comic book character of the same name.
Plastic Man was created by cartoonist Jack Cole. The character made his first appearance in Police Comics #1 by Quality Comics and was acquired by DC Comics. Plastic Man was one of the first superheroes to incorporate humor into mainstream action storytelling.
