We’re currently attending Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con, in particular a panel with Mike Colter and Stan Lee, and he was just asked some very interesting questions.
When specifically asked what he thought of DC, here’s what he had to say:
Trying to put me on the spot here. I know there’s some closet DC fans around here. DC and Marvel are always about entertainment, right? And what’s great about DC and Marvel [is] it’s like any great rivalry. We’re trying to push the other one to excellence. DC is always thinking of a new way to challenge Marvel and Marvel is always thinking of a new way to challenge DC. So that’s going to drive both of them to be the best version of themselves the best way they can be. Kudos to to DC for putting out great products.”
In regards to whether or not he’d be open to leaving Marvel to play a DC character in the future – he didn’t exactly close the door:
It’s not a football team. It’s a contract. So you know it’s not like the “NBA” you know. It’s not easy to get out. Put it this way, you had the Verizon guy switched over. We never saw that coming did we. So you never say never. I don’t know. I don’t know.”
It’s always an interesting topic whenever an actor from Marvel comments on DC or vice versa.
For now, you can watch Mike Colter on Marvel’s Luke Cage – currently streaming on Netflix.
