Iconic Yorkshireman, Sean Bean could be stepping into the Marvel Universe. If so, the actor will be following in the footsteps of fellow Hollywood A-listers like Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland, and Scarlett Johanson.
The Sheffield-born actor known for playing the honourable Ned Stark in the popular Game of Thrones series could be joining the next phase in the Marvel Cinematic universe, according to Giant Freakin Robot.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently announced how Phase Four was going to reveal its new direction soon and, according to trusted sources, beloved actor Sean Bean has been cast for a ‘pivotal role’.
Giant Freakin Robot has speculated that he will be playing devilish villain Mephisto, who is ‘immensely powerful, immortal, and the embodiment of evil itself’. And that his character will be featuring in a cameo in an upcoming project with the potential to a more expanded role – as seems to be the case with Marvel.
Bean is no stranger to bad guy roles. His role as Mr Wilford in the Netflix Snow Piercer series has been brilliant nothing short of sublime as was his role as double agent 006 in James Bond Goldeneye.
Upcoming projects that could potentially see Sean Bean included are the Fantastic Four movie and the Disney+ series Secret Invasion Giant Freakin Robot surmise.
With the role of a bad guy on the cards, could this be another death to add to the list of Sean Bean’s characters killed in movies and TV shows he features in?
Sean Bean, the iconic Yorkshire legend, has recently narrated a new film promoting Yorkshire entitled Project Yorkshire: A Playground Like No Other and the trailer just dropped earlier this month in time for its release on Yorkshire Day.
