Do you feel the force Luke?

Do you feel the force Luke?

Just when it looked like it was going to be a comic-free day at the moviehole office today, in comes news that another one of Marvel’s characters has just been snapped up, ready to be given the all-too-frequent movie treatment. Who might it be? Aquaman? The Green Lantern? Spider-Girl? Psylocke? Silver-Surfer?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Luke Cage” is headed for the silver screen. Columbia Pictures has picked up the rights to Marvel Studios’ comic book property "Luke Cage," one of the comic industry’s most recognizable black superheroes, for Neal Moritz’s studio-based Original Films to produce. The studio is moving forward on the project, tapping Ben Ramsey ("The Big Hit") to write the script. Marvel’s Avi Arad will produce. "Cage" is about a former gang member who is framed for a crime. In prison, he volunteers for a medical experiment that goes awry, giving him superstrength and bulletproof skin. Using his newfound powers, Cage escapes and becomes a hero for hire.

All I Can say is, thank god the character is black, because Nicolas Cage’s name above the title “Luke Cage” would be just too crazy.
