All hail screenwriter Christopher Markus. Why? Well, he co-wrote Captain America: The First Avenger, which is nothing to be sneezed at, but it’s his dream villain for the follow-up that has entirely won my love:
I love MODOK and I think you could make a terrifying movie with MODOK but nobody seems to be on my side at the momentum.
Dear Everyone At Marvel Studios: YES PLEASE TO THIS PLEASE. It gets better; Markus sees Peter Dinklage in the role:
I will win you over to Peter Dinklage as MODOK. If he came around the corner and you saw him floating there you would be terrified. It would be amazing… In [the first] movie, the great thing is [the visual effects and makeup team] really pulled off the Red Skull. It doesn’t look like a mask. it looks like it’s fully integrated into his flesh. And I want to see what they can do with MODOK.
Seriously, do we have to kidnap Joe Quesada to make this happen? Because I know enough hardcore Kirby fans that that could probably happen, if it needs to.
