Feige told FemaleFirst.co.uk, "His name has come up in the past. I'm a gigantic fan of his. I think he's incredible. I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven't really met him. I don't really know him, but I think he's an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature."
"He's awesome in 'Pain & Gain'. He was great in 'G.I. Joe'. He's really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitter's always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday."
Johnson addressed Feige's remarks Friday on Twitter, writing, "Thank U @Marvel President Kevin Feige for the nod. I'll be ready. #RockAsCage #HeroForHire."
In the message, Johnson enclosed artwork of the character alongside a photograph of himself.
In the past, Johnson has expressed interest in portraying the role. He stated in a Twitter message in August 2011, "I would love to play Luke Cage. Love that superhero. I'd crush it."
