RRR Star NTR Jr. Would Like It If Marvel Would Give Him A Call
The Indian action movie “RRR” took the world by storm last year and has recently been screened at select theaters for special engagements, including Q&As with the cast and crew. During the event at the Directors Guild of America, star N. T. Rama Rao Jr. was asked about joining the MCU, to which the actor replied, “I would love to do it. I’m waiting for it to happen.”
The Tollywood actor proved he could take on the role of a superhero, as he not only gained 15 pounds of muscle for “RRR” but also showed great charisma and emotional range during his performance. There are many characters that would be a good match for NTR Jr., from popular names like Wolverine or Sabertooth to more obscure ones like Rage or Morlun.
While the actor didn’t state whom he might like to play, NTR Jr. shared that Iron Man was his favorite superhero as the character is relatable and wasn’t born with superpowers or received any from a science experiment. With any luck, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will reach out to the talented actor and work out a deal to bring NTR Jr. to the MCU.
