In a recent interview with Men’s Health, legendary actor Arnold Schwarzenegger expressed his interest in potentially taking on a role in a Marvel movie in the future. When asked about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the Terminator star responded enthusiastically, stating that he would consider it “if the role is right.”
This statement from Schwarzenegger has sparked speculation among fans and industry insiders, as the actor has a history in the superhero genre. In 1997, he portrayed the iconic villain Mr. Freeze in the superhero film Batman & Robin. With his past experience and his son-in-law Chris Pratt already being a part of the Marvel Universe, Schwarzenegger’s potential involvement in a Marvel project would undoubtedly generate excitement among fans.
Earlier in April, Schwarzenegger publicly praised Chris Pratt’s performance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Pratt reprised his role as Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the highly anticipated film. Taking to Twitter, Schwarzenegger commended Pratt, saying, “I saw #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 last night and WOW. @prattprattpratt, you crushed it. A non-stop, perfect mix of comedy and action. I loved it, and I’m very, very proud of you.”
While Schwarzenegger’s potential involvement in the Marvel Universe is still uncertain, fans can look forward to his return to the silver screen after a four-year hiatus from acting. According to Deadline, he is set to star in the upcoming action movie Breakout, marking his comeback to the world of action-packed films. Additionally, audiences can anticipate seeing Schwarzenegger in the upcoming Netflix action series FUBAR and his latest documentary, Arnold.
As Marvel continues to expand its cinematic universe with a wide range of exciting projects, including both movies and series, fans can only speculate on what kind of role would be the perfect fit for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Whether he eventually joins the MCU or explores other avenues in the superhero genre, Schwarzenegger’s presence would undoubtedly bring his unique charisma and action-packed style to the screen once again.
