Djimon Hounsou is venturing into the jungle alongside Alexander Skarsgard in "Tarzan". Hounsou is set to play Chief Mbonga and it isn't clear yet if he will be a friend or foe of the King of the Jungle.

The Warner Bros. property and David Yates-helmed film also stars Margot Robbie ("The Wolf of Wall Street") as Tarzan's love interest Jane, as well as Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson. A rather stellar cast indeed and Skarsgard feels like a fantastic fit to play the title character.

Hounsou has definitely played his fair share of bad guys if it goes that way, as seen in "The Island" and "Push. He will next be seen in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy". His strong on-screen presence and smooth acting style is an asset to any project. This title is certainly shaping up rather nicely and it will be interesting to see how they choose to explore the rich content for this new rendition of the famous character.

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.

    My hope would be that someday, Marvel Studios can reach an agreement to have him appear, at least as a cameo, in one of the Phase 3 films. Maybe as a possible recruit in the Infinity War against Thanos.
