Wrestler/Actor Cody Rhodes, fresh off his role on Arrow, said that his work in comic book projects is not over at all. In an interview with BleedingCool, he revealed that not only is Black Bolt one of his favorite characters, he’s “actively pursing” the role on ABC’s “Inhumans”.
“I will fully disclose that I have been actively pursuing a couple of roles, that being one,” he explained. “I now have uprooted, moved to LA, to look into acting more, especially after the ‘Arrow’ episode. So that would mean the world to me if that were to happen. And we’re actively looking into it. I’m all about it.”
As for the character himself, Rhodes called him “one of the best characters in all comics. The idea that a simple, spoken word could blow a room up is just… I dig everything that is Black Bolt.”
Despite Rhodes pursuit of the role, Marvel TV as well as Marvel Studios are notoriously secretive so anything is possible. Rhodes very well may play the Inhuman king.
