It’s no secret that screen legend Al Pacino is a big fan of Guardians of The Galaxy. Earlier this year, Pacino talked about how much he loved the film after seeing it with his children. In an interview with MTV.com during the Toronto International Film Festival, the Scarface star simply said, “I’m ready to go to Marvel.” Well, it seems Marvel is ready for Pacino as well. In an episode of Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, Pacino revealed that he has met with Marvel executives for a possible role in future films.
“I’ve met with the Marvel guy,” said Pacino, talking about the studio’s president Kevin Feige. “It’s a Marvel how things happen.” He joked. “I would imagine that either there’s something he feels is right for me…” Pacino was then interrupted by a phone call, with the actor joking that it’s probably Marvel’s people telling him to keep quiet. He said, “Every time we talk about Marvel, that’s what happens.”
Pacino also talked more about his love for Guardians of The Galaxy, admitting that he was surprised that he enjoyed it as much as he did. According to the actor, he just wanted to go see something where he could just “shut his brain off” while his children watched. “But with this movie, I was taken up,” he said. “It was inventive, funny, and strong in sound and music. The production of it, the ingenuity of it… I was really impressed.”

Pacino was also surprised that people were making a big deal about him being vocal about his love for Guardians of The Galaxy. “Why wouldn’t I like a movie like that, appreciate a movie like that? I’m not necessarily going to be in it, but there’s value to it,” he said.
Marvel recently revealed their upcoming slate of movies which includes three Avengers films as well as a sequel to Guardians of The Galaxy.
