Where we couldn’t get enough news for the upcoming Batman/Superman movie, UFC Welterweight fighter Tyron Woodley is looking to further his career into acting, teasing potential roles for DC and Marvel’s cinematic universes.
Tyron Woodley was on the MMA Debate podcast hoping to join the massive cast of DC’s ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’.
Woodley stated – “I had a couple of projects that I wasn’t going to be able to do because they were going into this training camp,” he further teased “The good thing about movies sometimes the budget’s sometimes off and they have to reschedule things so there’s three big projects that I’ll get to work on directly after this fight.”
“I’ve got a Marvel and a DC project I should be able to jump on and continue my career there as well. ‘Man of Steel 2’ [now called ‘Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice’], I’ve got some calls about doing that so I would love to take advantage of that if the time-frame works out. There’s another movie called ‘Ant-Man’ that’s coming out and I might be able to get some work on that as well. I’d like to do both and I think I’ll be able to.”
It is not the first time a Welterweight fighter went into Comic book movies, if you’ve seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I’m sure you can recall the awesome fight scene with Welterweight legend Georges St Pierre and Chris Evans, Snyder will be hoping to recreate something as awesome to say the least.
