While we did like Jurassic World, one thing that was missing was Alan Grant, played by Sam Neill. And, by the same token, haven’t you ever been watching a Marvel movie and thought: “You know what the MCU needs? More Sam Neill…”.
Well, the actor has been chatting to The Shortlist (full video below) and revealed a couple of things about both franchises.
“I did a couple of days on Thor just before I came over here,” Neill revealed,“if I say anything else, Marvel’s secret agents, and they are lethal, will come and get me and probably my children, as well.”
Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi helmed Neill’s latest movie, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, so the tow are familiar with each other. So feel free to begin speculating who Neill will be in the MCU… our guess is anyone at all because we love the guy!
As for Jurassic World 2? Well, it’s not looking like he’ll be returning anytime soon as the actor reckons his character, Alan Grant would have retired by now and is probably “sick to death of dinosaurs.”
Well, we’re disappointed that he won’t be back for dino-hunting but the idea of him in the MCU almost makes up for it.
What about you guys?
