Hip-Hop Rumors: Will T.I. Be Starring As A Superhero In A New Marvel Comics Film Franchise?!

We’ve already seen Sticky Fingaz of ONYX rock the black leather and swords as the vampire-slaying “Blade” character made famous by Wesley Snipes for the short-lived Spike show several years ago, but now it appears another rapper is in talks to get his “hero” on.

With B.o.B by his side, T.I. spoke to Forbes down at SXSW about his upcoming business ventures. In the interview, Tip revealed that he could very well be donning a superhero uniform for Marvel in the near future.

After he briefly mentioned projects he’s working on with Kevin Hart, Omar Epps, and even Tom Cruise, T.I. dropped the real bombshell, “There is a Marvel Comics franchise that has been inquiring about my availability for quite some time…I will not let any cats out of any bags prematurely, however there is a Marvel Comics franchise that has been requesting my availability.”

Black Panther? Luke Cage? Falcon? Blade 2.0? Nothing is confirmed, and chances are the “talks” will stay under wraps for awhile, but if you could see T.I. starring as a Marvel superhero, who would it be?!

More importantly, do you think Tip’s got the acting chops to pull off a role like this for an entire movie or, better yet, a franchise?

Check out his interview with Forbes below. The Marvel and other film talk starts around the 3:00 mark:
