The Walking Dead’s Lennie James has revealed that he would love to play Daredevil in a Logan-style MCU movie, which I think would be epic. He revealed this during a recent interview with YouTube channel, The Nerds of Color.
Lennie James is currently starring in AMC’s The Walking Dead, however, he revealed during this recent interview that he has a real love for Daredevil. During the interview, he opened up about his love of the character and all things Marvel.
He did mention that he’s probably a bit too old to play the character, however, he did reveal a way he could portray Daredevil in a way that made a lot of sense. it also sounds like a really cool movie, to me at least.
Lennie James wants to play Daredevil in a Logan-style MCU movie
Here’s what he told The Nerds Of Color about wanting to play Daredevil and how it could work in a movie:
I’m a bit long in the tooth to be playing Daredevil now, so they’d have to do a kind of Logan version of it, of Daredevil at the end [of his career] as a grown man not quite being able to bend his knees at the top of some skyscraper in Hell’s Kitchen. And actually using the stick not just to find his way but also to keep him standing. We might have to do that version of it, but I’ve always loved Daredevil.
Honestly, I would definitely see a Daredevil movie starring Lennie James if they made it like 2017’s Logan movie. It sounds like a match made in heaven to me.
