Method Man Eyes Marvel Role Following Physique Transformation

Method Man has made great strides in the gym and feels ready for a Marvel role.

Time and time again there have been actors on the big screen showing off an impressive physique. There is a lot of work that gets put in behind the scenes, both in the gym and with nutrition. Method Man has recently gone through a incredible transformation and has built a physique that is ready to be shown off.

In a recent interview, Method Man discussed his fitness journey over the last two years. With the progress he has made, there might be an action hero role coming in the future and this is something that he is aiming for. Method Man specifically references Marvel in his comments.

“This whole journey wasn’t necessarily for acting. It was for myself, but I think I’m ready. I got the shirt-off action film thing. I could run, stoic, face straight, running with your shirt off kinda thing. You know, I’m ready, man. Come on Marvel. Come on Russo brothers, I’m here.”

Method Man begins by expressing that his journey was for himself, not to build a career in acting. Also, there is no official offer from Marvel but it is clearly something that he is interested in. Method Man has appeared in other films in his career, such as Trainwreck and How High. 


Most recently, Method Man has been enjoying a role in 50 Cent’s Power Book II: Ghost. He has appeared in the Luke Cage series as himself. He appears in a convince store and is held up at gunpoint. This is when Luke Cage, played by Mike Colter, enters the store to defuse the situation.

Method Man made a call-to-action to the Russo brothers in his comments. Anthony and Joseph Russo have directed four Marvel films — 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War and 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.

The fitness journey that Method Man put himself through was an eye-opening experience. He hopes that he can inspire the next generation to do the same.

“Maturity is when you look in the mirror and you get tired of your own BS. And that was it for me, you know, I was just wanting to change. I wanted to do something for myself instead of for everybody else. I can only be responsible for my actions and hope it inspires the next generation to do the same.”

While it is obviously unknown if Method Man will ever appear in a Marvel movie, the interest is there and he has built a physique that is ready to show off on the big screen.
