Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling, fresh off his charming turn alongside Margot Robbie in the blockbuster Barbie movie, is rumored to be in talks with Marvel Studios about joining the superhero cinematic universe. The buzz originated from industry insider Daniel Richtman, who dropped the bombshell that Gosling had met with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige to discuss potential roles.
Though till now it’s not confirmed news, from Feige’s side, it has been a green signal. Feige would take Gosling any day. Even when he talked to Josh Horowitz at San Diego Comic-Con last year, it seemed that there is certainly a place for Ryan Gosling in the MCU.
Ryan Gosling Rumored For MCU Debut
Buzz is swirling around Hollywood that Ryan Gosling might be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe after a rumored meeting with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
According to information shared by insider Daniel Richtman, both of them talked about exploring potential opportunities within the extensive superhero franchise.
While it’s still in the realm of speculation, the timing is intriguing. Ryan Gosling dropped out of Wolf Man under Universal and Blumhouse and won’t be starring in it anymore, after three years of attachment. Coincidence? Or perhaps his exit from Wolf Man is related to a potential involvement with Marvel?
It’s not the first time that Ryan Gosling’s name has been linked to the MCU. In the past, he was reportedly considered for the role of Doctor Strange, a part eventually secured by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Kevin Feige Already Welcome Ryan Gosling to the MCU
Marvel boss Kevin Feige said he’d “love to find a place” for Gosling in the MCU.
“Ryan’s amazing,” Feige told MTV News when he learned about Gosling’s Marvel pitch. “Hey man, if Ryan wants to be Ghost Rider… I’d love to find a place for him in the MCU.”
“He’s dressed up as Ken on Venice Beach and gets more press than giant movies coming out that weekend. It’s amazing.”
Ghost Rider was turned into a film back in 2007 with Nicolas Cage in the lead role and a sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance followed five years later.
