Ant-Man and the Wasp’s Laurence Fishburne would like to “suit up” as Goliath

Seriously? Damn, I’d love to see that. I’ve always felt Goliath was one of Marvel greatest underappreciated heroes. A Black man who wasn’t a reformed criminal or street hustler, but a scientist. Trust me, back in the 70s/80s, this was a big deal. He also just looked very cool.

Then, of course, Marvel killed him during Civil War. I’m still not over it. Fuck you for that one, Marvel. Fuck you hard.

Bill Foster’s nephew  has taken over the mantle of Goliath, but Marvel’s doing absolutely jack and shit with him. Thanks for that, too, Marvel.

If Fishburne does suit up, obviously it wan’t be in spandex. It’ll most likely be in some kind of armored suit that will have a blue and white motif to call back to Goliath’s costume.

But just for a one scene I’d kill to see Fishburne in Black Goliath’s classic belly shirt and disco collar.

And “Black” Goliath? I know this was a trope back in the day, but Jesus Christ, Marvel.
