Liam Neeson is being considered to be the next big Marvel baddie and there are no complaints here!
When you think of Galactus you probably think of someone who is an absolute bada$$! So it's only fair that the actor who plays Galactus matches that persona. And Hollywood's resident bada$$ is no other than Liam Neeson.
According to recent reports from We Got This Covered, Liam Neeson is being considered by the heads at Marvel to play Galactus in upcoming movies. There is no guarantee that Neeson will be cast in the role but now that it is in my mind I can't think of anyone else more suited to be Galactus besides, well, Josh Brolin (LOL).
But get this, there are other names being thrown around to play Galactus. David Morrisey and Mark Strong are also strong contenders for the coveted role of Devourer of Worlds!
Morrisey is most well known for his role as "The Governer" in The Walking Dead. Mark Strong, on the other hand, has already dipped his feet in the world of supervillains. He played Dr. Silvana in Shazam as well as Sinestro in Ryan Reynolds' Green Lantern. Let's also not forget his role in Kick-Ass.
The introduction of Galactus into the MCU will actually be massive as it will pave the way for the recently acquired Fox property of heroes, The Fantastic Four, to seamlessly be introduced into the MCU.
At the moment, there hasn't been news about how The Fantastic Four will be introduced. It could either be first in their own movie or with some cameo roles.
As of now Liam Neeson being cast as Galactus is only another rumor to be added to the rumor pile. Some other castings in the rumor pile are Daniel Radcliffe as Wolverine, Zac Efron as Adam Warlock and Vanessa Hudgens as Catwoman.
