Al Pacino Open to Star in Marvel Movie After Praising 'Guardians of the Galaxy'


Al Pacino


The 'Godfather' actor says the superhero movie directed by James Gunn has 'Shakespearian feeling to it at times.'

Al Pacino has watched "Guardians of the Galaxy", and he is impressed by the James Gunn-directed movie. The 74-year-old movie veteran calls it "the most entertaining, inventive, beautiful film" and is open to the idea of joining Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"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 tells Deadline. "I recognized the ingenious stuff they were doing; the invention, the attractiveness of the way they were performing it. It had Shakespearian feeling to it at times. I was caught up in the big screen, the great sound..."

When asked if he would like to play a role in the superhero franchise, he says, "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. You know, I did Dick Tracy and I got an Oscar nomination, so come on. I mean, what can I say?"

Pacino's next films to hit theaters include "Manglehorn" with Holly Hunter, "Danny Collins" with Jennifer Garner, "The Humbling" with Greta Gerwig, and "The Irishman" which has Martin Scorsese attached to direct.
