Laurence Fishburne Developing a Secret "World-Changing" Marvel Project!

Laurence Fishburne recently revealed that in addition to Ant-Man and the Wasp, he has a secret Marvel Studios project in development.

After playing Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White in a couple of DC Extended Universe installments, Fishburne is set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the sequel to Peyton Reed’s 2015 flick Ant-Man. He will portray Bill Foster, a former colleague of Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym. In the comic books, the character took up the mantles of superheroes such as Goliath, Black Goliath, and Giant-Man.

In a recent conversation with Collider, the Academy Award-nominated actor let it slip that he's working on an additional project for Marvel. However, he avoided divulging any further details about the project:

I’m developing something else for Marvel that I can’t talk about. It’s gonna be really cool. It’s gonna change the world, we hope (laughs). I went to Marvel and pitched them something that really couldn’t work out. There was a lot of legal red tape that was just something they couldn’t work out. But then they came back with the offer for Ant-Man and the Wasp. And then they said, "Hey, what do you think of this?" And I went, "Oh, yeah, that. Yes!"

Fishburne didn’t give away the nature of this secret Marvel project, nor did he describe how he's involved. He also didn’t indicate whether it was related to his Ant-Man and the Wasp character. So it’s impossible to guess whether it’s a movie, a television show, or something else.

In 2000, the 56-year-old actor wrote and directed the crime drama Once in the Life. He produced a number of movies and executive produced the ABC sitcom Black-ish. With that resume, it’s entirely possible that he's using more than just his acting talent in this new, world-changing project.
