The Marvel Cinematic Universe is bigger and better than anybody could ever have imagined and it is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. Actor John Krasinski was up for the role of Captain America in the Marvel movies, before missing out on the role to Chris Evans. John has now opened up about his audition process, admitting that he would now like the chance to play a Marvel villain on the big screen.
Krasinski explained, "I’ll take a Marvel movie anytime. I love watching them, so I’d love to be a part of it. The Captain America thing was hilarious. As much as I had fun doing it… I definitely got to wear the suit, I screen-tested and all those things. And I signed my life away that I wouldn’t even talk about it, so they’re going to kill me now; Thanks."
He then went on to add to Digital Spy, "But as soon as I heard that Chris [Evans] was considering it, I applauded. Chris is a good friend, and very very good at what he does, so I was so happy to see him do it. Maybe now I have to play a villain where I fight Chris. That’s what we need to do."
While we will have to wait and see whether John Krasinski will ever get to play that Marvel villain, we can currently see the actor on the big screen, starring in the new movie 13 Hours, which is out now in both the US and the UK.
