Former ‘Captain America’ Contender John Krasinski Wants Another Shot At A Marvel Role

Back in 2010, actor John Krasinski was among the top contenders being considered for the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger. Well, we all know how that one turned out. But with him not landing that particular role, it left the door open for Krasinski to step in another in the future. Would he be interested?

While speaking with Digital Spy, the actor commented on that possibility and told the site that he would “take a Marvel movie anytime. I love watching them, so I’d love to be a part of it.” Krasinski then looked back on the process of auditioning for Captain America and an idea for where he could fit in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Captain America thing was hilarious. As much as I had fun doing it… I definitely got to wear the suit, I screen-tested and all those things. And I signed my life away that I wouldn’t even talk about it, so they’re going to kill me now; Thanks. But as soon as I heard that Chris [Evans] was considering it, I applauded. Chris is a good friend, and very very good at what he does, so I was so happy to see him do it. Maybe now I have to play a villain where I fight Chris. That’s what we need to do.

If you are only familiar with Krasinksi from The Office and have any hesitation regarding him joining the MCU, I highly recommend checking out 13 Hours. He’s definitely branching out and stepping into these action roles and could be a solid addition the Marvel family. Would you be interested in seeing him land a role in a future Marvel film? What do you think would be a good fit for him? Let us know in the comments section below.
