Actor Logan Marshall-Green Is Campaigning To Play Mister Miracle For DC’s New Gods

It seems actor Logan Marshall-Green is quite interested in playing the role of DC Comics superhero Scott Free aka Mister Miracle on the big screen as he has already started campaigning for it.

Marshall-Green recently tweeted a message to director Ava DuVernay, who is helming DC’s New Gods, calling himself an unemployed actor who has already had his 15 minutes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor played Jackson Brice, the first member of The Vulture’s gang to be known as The Shocker, in 2017 released Spider-Man: Homecoming.

According to DC comics’ storyline, Scott Free is the son of the ruler of New Genesis, Izaya Highfather, and Avia. In order to avert a destructive war against planet Apokolips, Highfather agreed to exchange his son Scott for the galactic tyrant Darkseid’s second-born son Orion. Scott was raised by the brutal Granny Goodness with no knowledge of his own heritage.

He married Big Barda of Darkseid’s Female Furies and later fled to Earth where he met a circus escape artist, Thaddeus Brown, whose stage name was Mister Miracle. It was after Thaddeus Brown got murdered that Free assumed the identity of Mister Miracle.

The Upgrade actor is expecting DuVernay’s New Gods movie, which is currently in the script stages, to feature Mister Miracle. So, he is now calling out the director to at least consider him for the DC superhero role. Surprisingly, DuVernay has also replied to the tweet.

You can check out the tweet below.

Marshall-Green was last seen in Blumhouse and writer-director Leigh Whannell’s science fiction-action movie Upgrade. He played the role of Grey Trace, a paraplegic who regains his ability to walk after having an experimental computer-chip, named Stem, installed in his neck. Stem gives him physical abilities beyond anything human life has ever experienced.

Upgrade hits Digital on August 14 before hitting Blu-ray and DVD via Universal on August 28.
