    While James was the top contender to replace Jonathan Majors Kang character, he claimed he had no interest in doing so. “I know it’s going to throw people: Thrasher. As a kid, I loved Thrasher, especially when I was introduced to him via Spider-Man. I just thought that was really cool,” James said in a recent interview with The Direct. Night Thrasher is a character burdened by pain, yet resolute in his mission. James might have the potential to embody this duality perfectly.

    James’ background as a musician adds another layer of intrigue to this potential casting. There’s an undeniable charisma to James, an ability to command attention and convey a range of emotions. This translates beautifully to the world of superheroes. 

    Additionally, the character is known for his athletic prowess and formidable fighting skills. While acting experience for such scenes can be honed, James’ natural charisma and stage presence could translate well into portraying a confident and imposing hero.

    Besides Night Thrasher James also has a DC character he would want to portray on his mind. “Captain Atom would be really cool in the DCU. I think Atom is such a unique character,” he says. “They always kind of hint to him, show him in the cartoons and animation versions of all the movies that they’ve come up with in the DCU,” he added.

    He further added about how he thinks that Atom is very powerful. Of course, whether James’ superhero aspirations come to fruition remains to be seen. Additionally, the MCU has a meticulous casting process, and there are undoubtedly other talented actors vying for the role. However, James’ genuine enthusiasm for the character, coupled with his undeniable talent and charisma, make him a strong contender.
