Sylvester Stallone is reflecting on his six-decade-long career, which spans across more than 50 films that have reportedly collectively grossed about $3 billion at the box office.
Although the actor has had many successful leading roles like his infamous character, Rocky Balboa, he does wish he could have taken on a certain role where he wouldn’t have been “the main guy.”
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 76-year-old actor looked back on his contributions to the comic book sphere, revealing that he wouldn’t have been opposed to portraying a specific character in the MCU had the opportunity presented itself.
When asked is there’s a certain comic book character that he’d like to play, Stallone noted that he doesn’t “look like any comic book character.”
“Like, I could have never played the Terminator,” he said. “No one would make a robot with a crooked mouth and voice that sounds like a pallbearer. It just doesn’t work.”
However, the actor revealed that there is a character he’d want to portray- the one Samuel L. Jackson ended up playing, the MCU’s Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury.
“I thought I could have done something like that, where I’m not the main guy,” he said of the character “with the eyepatch.”
