New MCU Leak Fuels Cast Of Korean Star Park Seo-joon As Noh-Varr In The Marvels
Now that Disney+’s Ms. Marvel has ended with a jaw-dropping twist, we can expect Kamala Khan to return in Captain Marvel’s sequel Marvels. Alongside Iman Vellani, Brie Larson will return as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, and Teyonah Parris will reprise her role as Monica Rambeau. Surprisingly, an exciting addition to this cast is Korean star Park Seo-Joon, who will be starring in a Hollywood film for the first time, officially joining the MCU.
Wonders reportedly wrapped filming last year, but fans still don’t know which MCU character the Korean actor will be playing in the sequel. Now, a recent leak claims that Seo-Joon will be playing Noh-Varr, widely known as Marvel Boy.
See the leak posted by Marvel Updates on Twitter:
There’s no denying that Seo-Joon’s physical build is a perfect fit for the role of Noh-Varr. In Marvel Comics, Noh-Varr was a member of the Kree race located in a distant universe. The Kree altered their DNA with cockroach genes to include insect properties, gaining superhuman abilities. Marvel Boy may not be as strong as Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel, but he has superhuman reflexes due to his insect DNA properties that allow him to easily dodge bullets and laser beams. He also demonstrated superhuman strength, speed, and endurance in the source material.
There isn’t much information revealed about the upcoming movie, but recent reports claimed that Wonders will be a musical, while another claims the Inhumans won’t have a role in the sequel.
As of now, Marvel Studios has yet to reveal any teasers for the upcoming sequel. Regarding the casting of Park Seo-Joon, there are still several Marvel Comics characters that have yet to surface in the MCU that the actor can play.
Wonders will premiere on July 28, 2023.
