Comedian Marlon Wayans Would Like to Play Plastic Man


Marlon Wayans wants to step into the comic book genre and he knows exactly what character he’d like to play. According to Wayans, he would want to play the DC character Plastic Man. With his own comedic abilities, Wayans would be a really good fit for this character who might appear on screen sometime in the not so distant future.

Wayans explained:

“I would love to play Plastic Man. I think he works with the comedic skill set that I have, in terms of how I’m physical, I’m bendy. And I think it’d be cool to just do it without… You know, what’s great about Black Panther is he’s a black superhero, right? But sometimes [it’s fun] to just do something. Like, you wouldn’t think Plastic Man was a black guy, but it’s not black – it’s just, he’s plastic. I think it’d be fun for me, because I know I got to add my humor to it. The only two superheroes I ever really wanted to play was Plastic Man and The Mask. Those are the two superhero films I would love to play.”

Parks and Recreation’s Ben Schwartz had expressed before that he’d like to play Plastic Man. It seems like the two would definitely have to compete with each other for the opportunity. If DC did decide to bring Plastic Man into the fold, who would you want to see play this DC character?
