Laurence Fishburne is one of the few actors to appear in both DC and Marvel movies. This weekend he made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Ant-Man and The Wasp, but DC fans know him best as The Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White.
In a new interview with Den of Geek, Fishburne exlained that he doesn’t think he’s “on call” to return to the DC Extended Universe. He also hasn’t heard anything about Man of Steel 2 and seemed disappointed with the state of the DCEU as a whole. Check out the DC portion of his new interview below.
Are you still on call with DC to come back as Perry White?
I don’t think I’m still on call. I was unfortunately unable to go do some work on what turned out to be the Justice League movie. I don’t know that I need to go back or if they’ll have me back or not, but I was grateful to have been a part of it. I loved working with Zack (Snyder), I think he makes an incredible superhero movie. I’m just excited to be a part of this (the MCU) now.
So you don’t know if there’s a Man of Steel 2 in the works or anything like that?
I don’t. I don’t. I haven’t heard anything about it. They just fell behind the eight-ball. I really wish they had started 20 years ago. But that’s all right, they’re where they are.
Despite Superman star Henry Cavill’s excitement and ideas, we haven’t really had any solid news on Man of Steel 2. It doesn’t seem like it’s a priority at Warner Bros. right now. Of course that could all change with a surprise announcement at San Diego Comic-Con in a couple of weeks. We’ll have to wait and see.
