Boardwalk Empire and RoboCop star Michael K Williams revealed exclusively to SciFiNow that he’d love to follow-up José Padilha’s Eighties action movie reboot with another crime-fighting blockbuster – this time Marvel’s long-mooted Black Panther movie.

“It’s not in the forefront of things on my bucket list,” said the star, “but I’m fascinated by the Marvel movies, and I would love to be given the chance to play a character like the Black Panther.”

Or possibly Luke Cage?

“Oh man,” replied Williams, “I receive that!”

RoboCop is due in cinemas 7 February 2014, while the original trilogy is available now on Blu-ray for £10 from For more behind the scenes secrets on the reboot, check out the new issue of SciFiNow.
