Arnold Schwarzenegger is totally down to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Make it happen, you cowards!
Without question, Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the biggest and most famous names in Hollywood and despite being 75 years young, he’s still in cracking physical shape, we might add.
Arnie has starred in the likes of The Terminator, Predator, Total Recall, The Expendables, and much more, to name but a few. However, it seems that the popular actor isn't quite done with Hollywood yet and he might be headed to the MCU.
During a recent interview with Men’s Health Magazine, Arnie was asked whether he’d be up for starring in a role for the MCU. While a little coy with his response, he replied: “If the role is right.”
Of course, that’s by no means confirmation, however, it seems that Arnie is at least leaving the door open for a discussion. Arnie does have a family connection to the MCU, with his daughter Katherine, being married to Chris Pratt who plays Starlord in Guardians of the Galaxy. So perhaps Pratt could use his connection with MCU chief, Kevin Feige.
Schwarzenegger recently praised Pratt for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. “I saw Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 3 last night and WOW. Chris Pratt, you crushed it,” he tweeted. “A non-stop, perfect mix of comedy and action. I loved it and I’m very, very proud of you.”
Whether Schwarzenegger gets to play a part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains to be seen. However, we’d certainly agree that the MCU will be no worse off adding the charismatic action star to its ever-expanding roster of talents.
We can speculate who we’d like to see Arnold Schwarzenegger play in the MCU. Personally, I’d think he is perfect for the role of “The Devourer of Worlds” Galactus.
In related news, Arnie stars in the first TV series of his career FUBAR which premiered today on Netflix. FUBAR is an action comedy with Schwarzenegger playing a: “veteran CIA operative on the verge of retirement.
“But ringing in the golden years is put on hold when he’s called up for one last undercover mission: saving another operative that just so happens to be his daughter. The series tackles universal family dynamics set against a global backdrop of spies, action and humour.”
