Industry Insider Debunks Rumors Itaewon Class Star Park Seo-joon is Playing Amadeus Cho in ‘The Marvels’

Park Seo-joon is more likely to play the role of Prince Yan in The Marvels than that of Amadeus Cho.

The Marvels is one of the most awaited MCU projects which is set to hit the screens in 2023, and with Park Seo-joon joining the crew, there have been tons of rumors and speculation about which superhero will he be playing in the movie. And while various sources claim that he will be seen as Amadeus Cho in the film, that is apparently not going to be the case.

Although he is set to make his MCU debut in The Marvels, famous scooper Daniel Richtman has seemingly cleared up rumors about the South Korean actor playing Amadeus Cho, aka, Brawn in the upcoming sci-fi/adventure film. At the same time, it is also being said that the Itaewon Class actor will instead be taking over an entirely different character in the movie. Or at least that’s what the industry insider believes.

Park Seo-joon Won’t Be Playing Amadeus Cho in The Marvels

Popular entertainment insider Daniel Richtman seems to have debunked the rumors which claim that Park Seo-Joon will play the character of the Hulk-like superhero, Amadeus Cho, aka Brawn, in The Marvels.

Richtman clarified this through his Twitter account, DanielRPK, where he provides various insights and possible spoilers about upcoming films and shows.

When asked whether he knew which character the Parasite star would be portraying, if not that of the Korean-American-born superhero, Richtman said that Seo-joon, 33, will be seen as Prince Yan of Aladna in The Marvels.

Some sources seem to be dismissing the possibility of the Fight for My Way actor playing either of these superheroes, claiming it is the Kree named Noh-Varr, more popularly known as Marvel Boy, that Seo-joon will be playing on the screen.

However, these rumors don’t seem to hold any veracity, especially with this new development according to which Prince Yan is said to be Seo-joon’s designated character in Nia DaCosta’s The Marvels.

A Brief Look Into the Prince of Aladna 

Created and designed by Kelly Sue DeConnick and David López back in 2014, Yan Aladna’s first-ever appearance was in the comic-book world of Marvel, in a comic named Captain Marvel #9, wherein he was accompanied by, as the name suggests, Captain Marvel.

Prince Yan is from the planet of Aladna which in turn is settled in an entirely new kingdom, about which there is little to no information available. What we do know is, that when Yan was still a kid, he was often visited by the mutant superstar Lila Cheney from Earth who frequently traveled to Aladna.  Now as per the customs and traditions of Aladna, only the women are allowed to choose their mates, a practice that almost led to Yan getting betrothed to Lila.

However, the prince didn’t want to go through with the wedding ceremony, and beseeched Carol Danvers, aka, Captain Marvel, to help him stop the engagement when she visited the planet. This is when the redhead who wished to marry Yan, Marlo Chandler, enters the scene.

Claiming that she will defeat Lila which will ultimately pave the way for her marriage to Yan, Marlo was ready to fight the rock musician. But Captain Marvel fought for Lila and successfully managed to conquer Marlo, after which she became Yan Aladna’s bride.

Although no official confirmation about Seo-joon playing Prince Yan has been given yet, it could very well be a possibility since The Marvels is said to have musical elements in it.

The Marvels is scheduled to premiere on July 28, 2023.
