With so many films coming up, I’d like to bet that tons of actors have had conversations with the folks at Marvel regarding various roles, but when you’ve got someone like Al Pacino sitting down with Kevin Feige, it’s just got to be for a reason – especially when Pacino has already dubbed himself a big Guardians of the Galaxy fan and said, “I’m ready to go to Marvel.”
Hit the jump to revisit Pacino’s thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy and to read the very brief statement he made about his meeting with Feige.
Here’s what Pacino said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via MTV) after confirming he’s spoken to Feige:
“I would imagine either there’s something he feels is right for me – [Pacino’s phone rings] … Every time we talk about Marvel, that’s what happens.”
This certainly doesn’t mean we’ll definitely see Pacino in a Marvel film, but it does suggest he’s interested and how could Feige ever pass on that?
I don’t know much about the Marvel comics, but I do remember there was talk of Pacino being a good fit for The Grandmaster and Mephisto. However, considering Pacino is really into Guardians, perhaps Feige might have his eye on a role for him in the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. Star-Lord needs a dad, right?
What do you think? Where is the best place for Pacino to pop up in the MCU? Sound off below.
