Barry Keoghan, the star of the eternal, asked Stan Lee to make him a superhero six years ago


Six years ago, Barry Keoghan took on every role in Irish independent films. Like most other 20- or 21-year-olds, Keoghan was an avid Twitter user. In fact, he even used it to win Stan Lee for a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now Keoghan, according to Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige himself, finally has his wish and will be there The eternal next year.

To commemorate the occasion, Keoghan unearthed the tweet that was sent almost a decade ago. It is not different from the situation Shang-Chi Star Simu Liu was there when he tweeted on Marvel the first time to make him a superhero before he was actually occupied.

At the time of the tweet, Keoghan was featured in a handful of Irish films, including Between the channels, and King of the travelers, Since then, the Irish actor can be seen in the Christopher Nolan blockbuster Dunkirk plus a few other critically acclaimed movies like American animals (2018) and The killing of a sacred stag (2017).

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Keoghan will play the Eternal Druig, though it is unclear whether he will be a friend or foe of the main Hero group. In the comics he changes the page several times, so it is quite possible that he plays both sides.

Keoghan joins a large cast of the upcoming blockbuster from Marvel Studios, including Angelina Jolie (Thena), Richard Madden (Ikaris), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos) and Salma Hayek ( Ajak). , Lia McHugh, Sprite, Don Lee, Kit Harington, and Gemma Chan.
