Shaquille O’Neal wants to be in an Avengers movie and battle Robert Downey Jr!
The former NBA superstar fills in EW.com.
“I would love to be in one of the Avengers movies,” Shaq said. “I would like to kick Robert Downey Jr.’s ass.”
As noted, Shaq actually portrayed the DC superhero Steel in the movie of the same name back in 1997, which bombed pretty big; however, Shaq doesn’t rule out a return.
“It was an awesome opportunity,” O’Neal said. “However, I’d like to redo it and get some of these 2018 special effects.”
Robert Downey Jr. returns as Iron Man in this coming May’s The Avengers: Infinity War.
Who knows? Maybe Thanos can use the Reality Stone and bring in Shaq!
