Al Pacino loves ‘Guardians of the Galaxy' and wants to do a Marvel movie
When the Oscar winner sat down with Deadline at the Venice Film Festival, conversation immediately turned to the most recent movie he saw: "Guardians of the Galaxy."
“It was not something I would readily go see, but my kids got me to go, and one has to draw the line at where prejudice starts and where it ends — that was good stuff,” he said. “I recognized the ingenious stuff they were doing; the invention, the attractiveness of the way they were performing it. It had Shakespearean feeling to it at times. I was caught up in the big screen, the great sound …”
High praise, coming from the "Godfather" himself. Deadline then asked whether Pacino would be willing to become involved in a Marvel movie.
“I would do anything that I could understand in terms of how I fit in it. And you know, of course if I could fit in it. Anything’s possible,” he said. “You know, I did "Dick Tracy" and I got an Oscar nomination, so come on. I mean, what can I say?”
Kevin Feige, are you listening? I think you just found Star-Lord’s father.
