Al Pacino would do a Marvel movie?! Hire him!

September 4th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ok, like the rest of us, Al Pacino loved Guardians of the Galaxy and now he’d be up for appearing in a Marvel movie. Hoo-Ha!

He watched the movie at the Venice Film Festival and said it was  “the most entertaining, inventive, beautiful film,” reports Deadline.

“It was not something I would readily go see,” he said, “but my kids got me to go, and one has to draw the line at where prejudice starts and where it ends — that was good stuff!” He had even more praise: “I recognized the ingenious stuff they were doing; the invention, the attractiveness of the way they were performing it. It had Shakespearian feeling to it at times. I was caught up in the big screen, the great sound…”

But he’s no stranger to comicbook movies afterall: “I would do anything that I could understand in terms of how I fit in it. And you know, of course if I could fit in it. Anything’s possible,” he told me. Then he winked, “You know, I did Dick Tracy and I got an Oscar nomination, so come on. I mean, what can I say?”

So, we have to wonder… if you could cast Pacino as a Marvel character, who would it be?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
