Jean Claude Van Damme would love to star in 'The Avengers 2' because he thinks it would be "fun"

Jean Claude Van Damme wants to appear in 'The Avengers 2'.

The 'Expendables 2' star was happy to learn that Chris Hemsworth - who plays Thor in the Marvel series - wanted him to land a role in the forthcoming comic book caper and admitted he has always been a fan of the franchise and its former president and chairman Stan Lee.

He wrote on Facebook:"It was my pleasure to meet Mr Stan Lee back in 1994, along with Mr Samuel & Mr Victor Hadida.

"I read that Chris Hemsworth (Thor) would like me to co-star in 'The Avengers 2' movie! Well, it would be fun to play one of these types of amazing comic book characters again."

The 52-year-old actor went on to suggest a number of comic book characters he'd like to be considered for, both within the Marvel world and from other comic books.

He added: "By the way, I am a big fan of Marvel's superhero Silver Surfer and also another heroic fictional character known as Doc Savage - the Man of Bronze!"

He later wrote: "I see many of you are talking about "Iron Fist". Sure, that's one DAMME cool character too! (sic)"

'The Avengers 2' is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015.

That magic and perfect! With JCVD that will perfect movie and i sure in that!!!! He was able to show the directors that he's still the Van Damme with a fuse in the heart and a wonderful actor, he's still in the saddle! So if someone doubts his talent, I can tell you one thing - you do not just simply a film fans delitanty (I read a lot of negative reviews of Van Damme)

I think Van Damme could play any Avenger on this list: Vision, Dr. Strange, Namor, Wonder Man or specially Swordsman (Jacques DuQuesne), due to his french accent. He's in a wonderful shape, he can kick asses and he has improved A LOT as an actor. Also, he was the best thing in 'The Expendables 2', so he deserves a chance.
