"I don't think I'm still on call. I was unfortunately unable to go do some work on what turned out to be the 'Justice League' movie. I don't know that I need to go back or if they'll have me back or not, but I was grateful to have been a part of it," he said.

"I loved working with Zack (Snyder), I think he makes an incredible superhero movie. I'm just excited to be a part of this (the MCU) now," he added.

The also said that he has not heard of any development on the sequel to "Man of Steel".

"I don't. I don't. I haven't heard anything about it. They just fell behind the eight-ball. I really wish they had started 20 years ago. But that's all right, they're where they are," Fishburne said.

The actor recently switched bases and appeared in Marvel's latest superhero entry, "Ant-Man and the Wasp". He played the role of Dr Bill Foster, a of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas).

"I am one of the people, I'm in that small club of people who have been both in the DC Universe and Marvel Universe, and I'm so grateful. I'm excited by it, because here's the thing, I bought both. I have a collection of both comics. I wasn't just a Marvel guy or just a DC guy, I loved them both," he said.
