It’s finally official: Park Seo Joon is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Months after it was first reported that the actor would be starring in “The Marvels,” the upcoming sequel to “Captain Marvel,” Park Seo Joon’s agency has finally confirmed that he will be part of a new Marvel Studios film. (Back when the news was first reported, the agency declined to comment.)
On August 3, Awesome ENT announced that the actor had flown out of Korea that day to film a Marvel movie, but they declined to provide further details or confirm the specific film in which he would be appearing.
“We thank the many people who have shown interest and support for Park Seo Joon as he takes on this new challenge,” stated the agency. “We are well aware that many people are curious about the name of the film in which he will be appearing, his character, the filming location, and his filming schedule, but we plan to reveal the details of the movie at a later date.”
Park Seo Joon is now the third Korean actor to star in a Marvel movie following Claudia Kim (who appeared in “Avengers: Age of Ultron”) and Ma Dong Seok (“Eternals”).
