In an interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via MTV), Al Pacino revealed that he has had a meeting with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
While it seems the meetings haven’t amounted to anything solid just yet, Pacino seems to think Feige must have something on his mind.
“I would imagine either there’s something he feels is right for me, or…” Pacino said, before being interrupted by a phone call and not finishing the thought.
Pacino has publically stated, in previous interviews, how much he enjoyed Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In our own interview with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, Gunn expressed an interest in working with Pacino, though he wasn’t sure there was room for him in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
Yeah, for sure. I'm a huge, huge Al Pacino fan and I would love to find a way to work with him, whether it was in a Guardians movie or something else. The truth is that the next Guardians film, I've had so much of it worked out for a long time that I'm not sure there is a role to write there for Al Pacino, or for anybody else in particular. But yeah, of course, I always have those guys who I admire and I look up to and I'm always excited to write a role for them.
We’ll have to wait to see if Pacino’s meetings end up amounting to anything more than just talk.
