The Marvel Cinematic Universe is no stranger to adding big names in Hollywood, and if you do not believe me, just take a look at some of their recent castings. Brie Larson is the front runner to play Captain Marvel, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o are poised to join Black Panther, and Michael Keaton may be in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Those are just some of the cast members we have not yet seen been confirmed, but the likes of Kurt Russell, Mads Mikkelsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Cate Blanchett, and even Jeff Goldblum have joined the world in the last year or so.
With the universes end nowhere in sight, they will continue to add big names, and more often than not those names express interest prior to them even joining. You can add one more person to that list. In a recent interview with Collider, Woody Harrelson was asked if he would like to join the Marvel universe alongside his Now You See Me 2 co-star Mark Ruffalo and the answer is a definitive yes.
Big interest, big interest. In fact, I would love to be a part of that Marvel universe.
Whether or not Harrelson gets a role in the MCU remains to be seen, but with him being a recognizable actor to a lot of audiences I would not be surprised if Marvel will call or has called. Now while this may be getting ahead of ourselves, here are a few suggestions for who Harrelson could play. If you want him to join as soon as possible, one possibility could be The Tinkerer, who is said to have a role in Spider-Man: Homecoming as he helps Vulture. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see Keaton and Harrelson play off eachother. Another suggestion that could be possible either next year or in a few years and would be easier on Harrelson is voicing Cosmo. He has a distinct voice that some movie goers would recognize, but it would not be too distracting. The option that appeals to me the most is him playing Mar-Vell, since he will likely have a short role in the MCU. Harrelson will be in Larson’s next film The Glass Castle so maybe they will hit it off and Larson can help get him the gig.
