    Sorry to say... But MJ as Spiderman would have been a joke...

    He was many things, but not a action hero.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

Even Marlon acted in a B-movie called Student Confidential. What I've noticed is that some rappers (Fresh Prince, Queen Latifah, Ice Cube, Ice T, LL Cool J) have been accepted as actors by the general public in a way pop & rock singers like Madonna, Mick Jagger, Prince, Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, & Sting couldn't do. Even when Elvis Presley movies were box office hits, he was mostly making the same movie over & over with a different setting (because that's what Colonel Parker had him do). I don't think people were going to see Elvis movies because of the plots, but to see him sing a few songs.
    Michael wanted to play Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars Episode 1:
    https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/...ar-wars-56736/

    Ahmed Best, who voiced and provided motion capture for the Binks character, explained Jackson’s interest in an interview with Vice.

    “Me, Natalie Portman and George [Lucas]’s kids – we were at Wembley arena at Michael Jackson’s concert,” Best said. “We were taken backstage, and we met Michael. There was Michael and Lisa Marie [Presley]. George introduced me as ‘Jar Jar,’ and I was like, ‘That’s kind of weird.’ Michael was like, ‘Oh. OK.’ I thought, ‘What is going on? After Michael had driven off, we all go back up to a big after-party. I’m having a drink with George, and I said, ‘Why did you introduce me as Jar Jar?’ He said, ‘Well, Michael wanted to do the part, but he wanted to do it in prosthetics and makeup like Thriller. George wanted to do it in CGI. My guess is ultimately Michael Jackson would have been bigger than the movie, and I don’t think he wanted that.”

    I'm so grateful that Michael never played Jar Jar Binks. Can you imagine all the cruel jokes? He really dodged a bazooka with that one
