Howdy ladies and gents, time for some film news and today it is Marvel-related as we have an actor who has met up with the president at Marvel Studios. The following information comes from superherohype:
When Guardians of the Galaxy debuted in theaters, it was almost instantly a smash hit and went on to become the highest-grossing film of the year at the domestic box office. Countless people were now fans of the ragtag group of misfits, including Academy Award-winning actor Al Pacino, who called the film “amazing, inventive, and beautiful.”
Now, on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast (via MTV), Pacino reveals he has since met with Marvel Studios and its president Kevin Feige. When asked if he thought there was a part in store for him, he replied:
“I would imagine either there’s something he feels is right for me, or…” which is when Pacino’s phone began to ring. “Every time we talk about Marvel, that’s what happens.”
Like so many others, Marvel meets with a lot of actors, and whether anything ever comes of it remains to be seen, but Marvel Studios does have a number of movies coming up where Pacino could find himself such as Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Inhumans, or perhaps even Avengers: Infinity War.
So Al Pacino has been in talks with in Kevin Feige and Marvel? Nice. I mean sure there is nothing to suggest that he is a confirmed character in the MCU or give us as fans an idea as to who he play, but the fact that he’s even in talks does give one hope for the future. Pacino is a great actor of incredible caliber, so to have him in a superhero film would be fantastic. So who would he play in the upcoming list of Marvel films> Well it is anyones guess at this point. He could play Star-Lord’s father in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 or he could have a role in Doctor Strange maybe as the main villain or something else, I don’t know, those are my two best guesses. I feel like those films would be his best places for him to have a role, that being said he could appear in any of the other Phase Three films if the role was right for him.
So what do you think of this news? Be sure to comment below and let me know. Laters.
