Jason Statham As An Undersea Prince

Jason Statham, who seems to have made a career out of kicking down doors, screaming, and shooting people, took a meeting with Marvel as part of an audition process for Namor, The Sub-Mariner. We'll pause while you process that for a bit. Just imagine the smooth-headed, Cockney-slinging Statham as the Prince of the Seas. Complete with a little speedo and wings on his ankles. Oh and the Spock ears, and those pointed eyebrows. Can you picture it? Neither can we. Thankfully, it doesn't seem to be happening. Another near movie disaster, narrowly averted. [IESB]
