Denzel Washington comments on Black Panther

Denzel Washington has been discussing a couple of the characters his name is often linked to, namely Marvel’s Black Panther, and 007 himself, James Bond.

Washington was asked whether he would be interested in playing a superhero, bringing him around to the long-standing rumour that he could play Black Panther…

“I’m probably getting too old,” said the star. “They didn’t make the Black Panther yet, though, did they? I heard that they have been talking about it. That’s cool.”

James Bond is another character that Washington has been linked to over the years, and when asked whether he would be interested in taking the role once Daniel Craig moves on, his answer was unequivocal…

“Yes I would! Who’s doing James Bond now… Daniel Craig. Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! Send it to the studio. We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today! James Washington. Denzel Bond.”

The campaign starts here. In the meantime, Washington can be seen starring in The Equalizer , which opens in the UK on 26 September 2014.
