Comedic actor Marlon Wayans, best known as the writer of Scary Movie and White Chicks, has claimed that the role he’d like to play in a comic book movie is Plastic Man.
In an exclusive interview with ScreenRant, Wayans was originally promoting his upcoming Netflix film Sextuplets before he revealed the one superhero he would like to play.
“I would love to play Plastic Man,” Wayans said. “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.”
For anyone unaware, Plastic Man is a DC super-hero who has the ability to stretch to great lengths and contort his body into any position using his unique malleable body chemistry. There is currently no plans for a Plastic Man movie. However, if a film does come to fruition, DC has a volunteer in the shape of Marlon Wayans.
