Justin Timberlake is still most well known as a singer, but he’s been a prominent actor as well. Movies like The Social Network, Friends With Benefits, and most recently, Palmer, have gained him a lot of attention in Hollywood. While he’s signed on for dramas and romantic comedies, and even children’s movies like Trolls, he hasn’t yet joined one of the major franchises. Now, a trusted and proven inside source for Giant Freakin Robot has shared that may soon change. Our source shared that Justin Timberlake is currently in talks with Marvel for a major role.
It’s important to note that at this point, they’re still in talks. Our source shared that there are multiple options being discussed. One role they said that Justin Timberlake is currently looking at is for the villain in Ironheart. While they were able to disclose that the villain role is in consideration, they were unable to confirm who the villain will be in the Ironheart series for Disney+.
At this point, Justin Timberlake is in talks. We can’t predict whether he’ll sign on the dotted line with Marvel or not. Taking on a major role is a huge commitment. Stars like Chris Hemsworth have been playing Thor for over a decade, so it would make sense if Timberlake wants to be choosy about the role he takes on. At this point in his career, it would be interesting to see the likable pop star take on the role of a villain. There’s still plenty of iconic villains out there if he decides to stick with that route. Hopefully, he’ll find one that suits.
