Dolph Lundgren wanted for He-Man reboot and JCVD wants to bring Van Dammage to Avengers 2!

As is seemingly inevitable in this day and age, not content with remaking every horror film we hold dear they are now going to start working their way through our action childhood too and a remake or reboot (or whatever word is trendy that week) of Masters of The Universe is in the works.
This week the director, John Chu (director of the delayed G.I. Joe: Retaliation) indicated that he'd like to work with Lundgren in some capacity when he made this statement:
"I don't know if Dolph Lundgren is around or what he's doing but, yeah, I think that could be some fun if we could find a way. I hope he still has the loincloth and the long hair and everything."

As there's nothing official yet you can take this with a pinch of salt.
Do you want to see a new MOTU movie?
Do you want to see Lundgren in there in some capacity?
Let us know!
The other bit of random casting news this week was that loveable, puppy hugging, splits doing Belgian, Jean-Claude Van Damme posted that picture (to the left) to his Facebook page and said:
"It was my pleasure to meet Mr. Stan Lee (creator of "X-Men", "The Incredible Hulk" and "Spider-Man") back in 1994, along with Mr. Samuel & Mr. Victor Hadida! I read that Chris Hemsworth (star of "Thor" and brother of Liam Hemsworth, "The Expendables 2") would like me to costar in "The Avengers 2" movie! Well, it would be fun to play one of these types of amazing comic book characters again. 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!"
No indication where he heard that Thor wanted him in the film (possibly from his brother, Liam, on the set of EX2) but it's pretty much assured that, sadly, this will never happen.
I have read a lot of blogs deriding Van Damme or saying he was a has been, well I know people want any and all information on Avengers 2 possible but when was the last time people wrote this many blogs and news articles on a has-beens Facebook post?? hmmmmmmm?
Haters gotts hate I guess.
I personally would LOVE to see an 80s or 90s action star like Van Damme (or whoever) in some of one of these big comic book movies. They'd bring it, they'd own it and their scene or scenes would be legendary. FACT.

Do you want Van Damme in Avengers 2?
What other Expendable cast member would you want in a comic book movie?
Who would they play?
