The MCU may already be bursting at the seams with Hollywood A-listers, but if Marvel Studios' president Kevin Feige has his way there may soon be another big name joining the ranks – Ryan Gosling.


In a weekend full of big announcements for Marvel, Feige was asked by MTV News' Josh Horowitz at this year's San Diego Comic-Con about Gosling.

This comes after Horowitz had tweeted that "Ryan and I chatted about the Nova rumours yesterday which he said aren't true. BUT this morning Ryan reached out to me to say there is one superhero he wants to play...GHOST RIDER."

Asked about the star wanting to take on the role Feige said: "Ryan's amazing. I'd love to find a place for him in the MCU. He's dressed up as Ken on Venice Beach and gets more press than giant movies coming out that weekend. It's amazing."

In the interview, Feige also opened up about the future of Harry Styles in the MCU, saying we would learn more soon. He said: "The adventures of Eros and Pip is something that is very exciting for us."

At Comic-Con, Feige announced a number of new MCU projects including two new Avengers movies to both release in 2025. He also revealed that phase four of the MCU would come to a close later this year with the release of both She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Meanwhile Gosling is currently starring in the Russo Brothers' film The Gray Man on Netflix, while he has also been filming Greta Gerwig's Barbie alongside new Doctor Ncuti Gatwa, who he called "the coolest".

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premieres on Wednesday 17th August on Disney Plus. Sign up to Disney Plus for £79.99 a year and £7.99 a month.
