Although the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not going through its prime, the studio has a lot of potential since the purchase of 20th Century Fox and, consequently, the arrival of The Fantastic Four and the X-Men. While many of the mutants seen in early 2000s movies are likely to return, star castings are also expected to play certain characters from the Patrol X.
It is here that we come to the interest expressed by Method Man. For those who don’t know him, Method Man is a rapper who is part of Wu-Tang Clan, one of the best rap groups in history that has left an indelible mark on the world of hip-hop. Now, after several years working on movies and series, he wants to join the UCM as Bishopone of the most charismatic mutants of the X-Men.
“The guys in the MCU know what they’re doing. I haven’t had a problem with any of their castings so far. I think Omar Sy did an excellent job as Bishop, but that was before the MCU. If they cast him again, I think he would.” It would do great. There are a few people out there. But if they’re willing to give me a chance, I’d go for it. Plus, I’ve already done all the research to get cast.”
As the rapper tells through the medium Cassius Life, interpreting Bishop would be one of his great dreams, since reading comics has been one of his great passions since he was little. Without going any further, he has already appeared briefly in the UCM through Luke Cage y The Defendersso you already know more or less the selection process that the company follows when choosing actors.
It would be crazy to see a rapper with these characteristics participate in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although he would not be the first to do so. Donald Glover, who also has a side as a rapper called Childish Gambino, appeared in Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse as the Prowler. But before the arrival of the X-Men, they will be deadpool and wolverine the first mutants to land in the UCM in the craziest and most bizarre way possible.
