Anson Mount solely reveals the one Marvel hero he might want to play more than Black Bolt in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series Inhumans. Based on Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s funnies of the same name, the ABC series was originally planned as a film in Phase Three of the MCU prior to shifting spotlight on developing it for TV, expected to support Marvel Television’s standing with the organization following the cancellation of Agent Carter and passing of Marvel’s Most Wanted. The series hailed from Scott Buck, the showrunner of the principal season of individual MCU series Iron Fist at Netflix.
While speaking solely with Screen Rant for his chance as Batman in Warner Bros.’ animated Injustice film, Mount pondered his Marvel history and contemplations on what’s to come. In looking at potential characters he could bring to life other than Black Bolt, Mount revealed he couldn’t want anything more than to play Gambit, revealing the X-Men character as his main Marvel hero he’s wanted to play behind the Inhumans leader and his personal connections to Gambit. See what Mount said beneath:
“On the off chance that you give me my decision of Marvel characters, I think Black Bolt would have been number two, second only to Gambit. Gambit is only perhaps the coolest character in the Marvel universe and clearly I’m partial to him because he’s the Southern superhero. He’s definitely not one of the more impressive characters in the event that you line them all up facing each other [laughs].
However, his mind and his ability to overcome a particularly dark past and then the far future reaches that Marvel has finished with him as far as the extent of his potential fates, it’s simply amazing. I think it’s a really rich territory and regardless of whether it’s not with me, I trust Marvel accomplishes something with Gambit. Presently, I’m probably too old thus, you know, there’s certain individuals out there that have been calling about Reed Richards, however I don’t have the foggiest idea. My dance card’s a little full this moment and so is theirs.”
While Inhumans saw a generally helpless gathering from pundits and fans alike, some are as yet confident the galactic race can get another chance in the MCU, especially as bits of gossip began swirling of a reboot, which were upheld by Mount. However an actor portraying a character in the Disney franchise may point towards the entryway closing for their profits in any other capacity, Gemma Chan’s upcoming turn as Sersi in Eternals is evidence that should the right creative mind see fit for Mount to make a return, be it as Gambit, Black Bolt or otherwise, it very well may be finished. In the meantime, audiences can anticipate Mount taking on one of DC Comics’ most notable heroes with his performance as Batman in the animated Injustice movie coming out October 19.
