Back in June, a rumor dropped that South Korean actor Park Seo-Joon was cast in the Captain Marvel sequel, which would eventually take on the name The Marvels. There was no word on what role he may have taken on, but he was the second Korean actor to join an MCU project, as Ma Dong-Seok had a leading role as Gilgamesh in Eternals. The actor has been silent on his role, but has now given some insight into how he joined the film in an interview with The Guardian.
When I first heard that the Marvel Cinematic Universe wanted to speak with me, I couldn’t believe it. I actually couldn’t believe it. I’m not someone who has a fear of challenges, but whether I am filming in South Korea or abroad, everything is a challenge for me. So, I did feel some nerves at first. But everyone was so helpful and welcoming that I was able to find my feet really quickly.Park Seo Joon
So, it looks like he was approached by Marvel Studios for a role in the film. The actor is still not revealing which role he has in the upcoming film, which still is keeping many of its story elements under wraps. To be fair, there’s also a lot of time to go until it finally releases but we’ll see if the first trailer might give us our first hint at the South Korean actor’s role.
