Deadline’s report doesn’t comprise extra details about the casting, however does state that it was “one of many extra extremely coveted components in Hollywood” and that Kevin Feige, Bassam Tariq, and others met with dozens of actors first earlier than selecting Pierre. Pierre can also be working with Disney in Barry Jenkins’ Lion King prequel, the place he’ll play Mufasa.
Solely Mahershala Ali, Delroy Lindo, and Pierre have been forged to date within the movie. This movie is sort of far off, so Marvel will assuredly be asserting increasingly more actors within the months to come back. Tariq can also be set to direct and Watchmen and Pen15‘s Stacy Osei-Kuffour is writing the script.
