Dave Franco has not been cast in a role in a film that is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it does not seem that he is not seeking to do so.
The actor focused his attention on the Spider-Man film series during a recent conversation with Chris Killian of ComicBook.com. Franco gave the impression that he wouldn’t mind making an appearance in Hollywood’s most successful series at some time or another, even though he doesn’t have a specific role in mind.
Anything is feasible thanks to the influence of the universe, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting ready to welcome a large number of new and returning characters into the fold. In a recent interview, actor Dave Franco discussed his interest in potentially joining the series, maybe even in the same part that his elder brother James portrayed in the first film back in 2002.
Franco was asked by Comicbook, in support of the upcoming Netflix action comedy Day Shift, if he would be interested in joining the Spider-Man universe, an idea which he seemed onboard, but he wasn’t sure what role would be best. Franco was speaking in support of Day Shift, which will be released later this year.
The interviewer then continued by stating that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has not yet presented its own version of Harry Osborn, hinting that possibly this might be a part for him to play.
Will Dave Franco Join MCU Soon?
Given the brevity of his answer, it would not seem that Franco is very interested in succeeding his brother as Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe storyline.
Should the actor decide to join Kevin Feige’s team, there are sure to be plenty of additional parts that are a good fit for him, since there are already so many projects in the works that originate from the legendary Marvel character. There is sure to be no lack of projects to follow after.
Franco does not seem to have any Marvel projects at the moment. Still, he and co-star Jamie Foxx (who, interestingly enough, has had his significant parts in Marvel’s recent past) will release the Netflix vampire film Day Shift on Friday, August 12.
When questioned about the possibility of another Spider-Man film, Raimi said, “I’ve come to know after filming Doctor Strange that everything is feasible, truly anything in the Marvel world, any team-ups.”
“Tobey is my favorite. I adore Kirsten Dunst. I believe that everything can be accomplished. I don’t have a plot or a game plan for this. I have no idea whether or not Marvel would be interested in it at this time.
Regarding that topic, I have no idea what their ideas are. That is something I haven’t looked into. However, it has a lovely sound. Even if it weren’t a Spider-Man movie, I’d still jump at the chance to collaborate with Tobey again, but this time in a different capacity.”
