It looks like the Marvel Cinematic Universe is welcoming another South Korean actor into its expanding family. Rumour has it that it’s Park Seo Joon (박서준).
According to reports, the 32-year-old Hallyu star will be in the “Captain Marvel” sequel titled, “The Marvels”. However, there’s no word yet on which role he’ll be portraying in the MCU flick.
Soompi reported that Park Seo Joon is scheduled to fly to the United States in the second half of 2021. At the moment, he’s currently busy filming the thriller film, “Concrete Utopia” (콘크리트 유토피아). When asked about the exciting news, Park Seo Joon’s agency Awesome ENT responded, “No comment”.
This is obviously a big occasion for K-drama fans as the “Itaewon Class” actor will be joining Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, and Iman Vellani (who are playing Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan respectively). Zawe Ashton is allegedly the main villain in “The Marvels”.
If this is true, Park Seo Joon will be following in the footsteps of Ma Dong Seok who will be appearing in “Eternals” later this year.
