Michael B. Jordan Wants Denzel Washington To Join The Marvel Cinematic Universe : I Got Some Things In Mind
It looks like Michael B. Jordan has high hopes for movie legend Denzel Washington! While promoting their new movie A Journal for Jordan, a fan asked the Creed star if he wanted Washington to star in a Marvel film. The 34-year-old actor starred in Marvel’s Black Panther in 2018 playing iconic character, ‘Killmonger’.
With excitement, Michael quickly responded,
“Yes! No hesitation. I actually got some things in mind, but yeah!”
Washington, 67, who was also present for the interview jokingly replied,
“You better hurry!”
Michael B. Jordan then reveals he actually has some ideas for a Marvel film starring Denzel Washington but needs to carve out some time to give it the attention it would need.
“I know! But I got you. I got some ideas for that… After I finish Creed III, you know what I’m saying? Once I finish that project my mind can wander on [to] other creative things.”
Denzel Washington directed Jordan in their latest film, A Journal for Jordan, which is based on a true story. The movie follows army sergeant Monroe King –played by Jordan– as he keeps a journal of advice and love for his infant son while deployed in Iraq. Meanwhile, his editor, wife Dana– played by Chanté Adams– reminisces on the beginnings of their romance.
Reportedly, the award-winning actor and director knew Michael B. Jordan was the right person for the role after becoming a fan of Jordan’s breakout performance in the 2013 film Fruitvale Station. During the interview, Washington said,
“The IT factor is just that – there really is no name for it, you just know it when you see it”.
Michael also recalled the first time he crossed paths with Denzel Washington, who he affectionately nicknamed “OG,” as in “original gangster”.
“I remember the first time I met him — he wouldn’t remember. I was so young and it was so long ago. It was in New York, I was a kid, I was 15. We were at some event and I remember shaking his hand and thinking, ‘Oh, man, this is Denzel Washington’s hand I’m shaking. It’s soft, man, this shit is soft. He takes care of his hands.'”
While talks of Denzel Washington joining the MCU franchise are only hypothetical at this moment, it’s safe to say fans would welcome him with open arms!
