There are very few actors who taste both- critical and commercial success in a short career. Amongst such is John David Washington. Son of a star actor and director, Denzel Washington, John made a space for himself with some strong performances.
John David Washington says, “The day that my mom found out she was pregnant with me. I would tell her, ‘you could wait a couple of years, get on stage, and do that musical you were supposed to do.’ I’ll be here, and I swear I’ll be the same person. Go ahead and get that jump shot off, sis!”
Now, that’s really sweet of him and we wish, he really had a time machine!
Recently, John spoke about his involvement in superhero movies and what would it take of him to star in one. He also quirkily answered what would we say of Marvel’s boss-man Kevin Feige approaches him for Fantastic Four.
While talking to Nerd Reactor, John David Washington said, “There’s so many. I think it depends on who’s asking, what the director wants to do it with me.” On being asked which character he’d like to play, he said, “We’ll see, I want to stay open. I don’t want to box myself in.”
