Former Doctor Who actor Matt Smith has revealed he'd love to join Marvel's Cinematic Universe, but under one condition: It has to be the right project.
At Fan Expo Canada in Toronto this past weekend, Smith was questioned about joining a Marvel Studios project. "I’d love to. They’ve got ask me though, the swines," Smith jokingly explained. "But it would have to be the right project."
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has esteemed actors from a wide array of acclaimed series, Doctor Who included. Karen Gillan is reprising her role as Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy in Avengers: Infinity War, Christopher Eccleston played Malekith in Thor: The Dark World, David Tennant is returning as Kilgrave in Jessica Jones Season 2 and Jenna Coleman had a small appearance in Captain America: The First Avenger.
"It would have to be something that felt different enough to Doctor Who. I love so many of those movies and I love Nebula, because Karen’s blue. With no hair. Anyway, I’d love to… If you’re listening, Marvel,” the actor continued.
The next movie to be released from Marvel Studios is Thor: Ragnarok. Arriving Nov. 3, the movie stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
