UFC fighter Tyron Woodley revealed on the Great MMA Debate Podcast this weekend that he is eyeing roles in two highly-anticipated superhero movies, Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Marvel Studios' Ant-Man. No details were given about what roles he may be playing, but the actor/fighter revealed that he may be able to shoot both projects if the scheduling works out.
"I had a couple of projects that I wasn't going to be able to do because they were going into this training camp, but the good thing about movies sometimes the budget's sometimes off and they have to reschedule things so there's three big projects that I'll get to work on directly after this fight. I've got a Marvel and a DC project I should be able to jump on and continue my career there as well. Man of Steel 2 (title is now Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), I've got some calls about doing that so I would love to take advantage of that if the timeframe works out. There's another movie called Ant-Man that's coming out and I might be able to get some work on that as well. I'd like to do both and I think I'll be able to."
Tyron Woodley, who lost in a unanimous decision to Rory MacDonald at UFC 174 last night, previously played a bodyguard for Ian Quinn (David Conrad) in a February episode of ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. entitled "T.R.A.C.K.S.", and he also was a stunt performer on the action-thriller Olympus Has Fallen. It isn't known if Tyron Woodley is being considered for speaking roles in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Ant-Man, or if he will have speaking roles.
