Nuke the Fridge shows once again that precious gems can be gained from press junkets. Their Louis Love had a chance to talk to Aaron Eckhart while the actor was promoting his latest film, Erased. Love asked the actor if he was planing to work with Christopher Nolan again or in the superhero genre. In response, Eckhart casually mentions that “Marvel and…we would like to do something together.”
He leaves it at that, and since it is a press conference for another film, it wasn’t followed up on. But , if Eckhart is to be believed, Marvel wants to be in the Aaron Eckhart business. In what way is the question.
As for leads, Ant-Man hasn’t been cast yet. Neither has Doctor Strange. For supporting roles, well, he could be considered for any number of upcoming Marvel films.
Here is the clip with the question. He also talks about Robert Downey Jr and Heath Ledger in his response. It’s worth a look.
