In an interview with Forbes magazine, rapper T.I. spoke about his career outside of rap. Appearing alongside his fellow Grand Hustle artist, B.o.B., he touched on his recent signings of artists like Iggy Azalea, how much money he makes and the possibly of acting in a Marvel franchise.

“I will not let any cats out of any bags prematurely,” T.I. told me last week at South By Southwest, lounging with labelmate B.o.B in his tour bus (see video below). ”[But] there is a Marvel Comics franchise that has been inquiring about my availability for quite some time.”

The potential pact is one of many in progress or on the drawing board for T.I., who has been on a tear since his release from prison last fall. Highlights include signing new acts including Iggy Azalea to his Grand Hustle label, working on his own new album Trouble Man and filming his reality show “T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle,” which premiered on VH1 in December.

There are even bigger things in the works. T.I. says he’s in talks to appear in a number of films alongside the likes of Omar Epps, Kevin Hart and Tom Cruise.
