Barry Keoghan wants in on Taika Waititi’s Star Wars movie. However Keoghan seems doubtful on Eternals 2 happening in a recent interview with GQ. Keoghan is currently both Druig in the MCU and Joker in The Batman universe which is a part of the DCEU. I guess he’s working his way through the biggest franchises as he also says he’s been trying to meet Waititi with a view to getting into his Star Wars movie.
First, Eternals 2, which it seems Keoghan is doubtful will happen.
Keoghan wants to play Druig again, but the day before we meet, Marvel teased its forthcoming slate at San Diego Comic-Con. “[They] didn’t really mention Eternals 2, so…” Keoghan scratches his head and looks downriver. He seems bruised by it.
However, he is also waiting to hear more about what comes next in The Batman sequel, and whether he’s involved or not? It’s here he then goes on to say he’s trying to get into Waititi’s Star Wars movie.
Keoghan has not yet been invited back for a sequel but the character, kept under wraps and revealed only when audiences finally saw it in theatres, feels like the set-up of something bigger. “As soon as that call comes,” he insists, “I’m there man, I’m there.” In the meantime, he’s hellbent on securing a part in Taika Waititi’s Star Wars movie. “I’m tryna meet him,” he quips, “I’ve been askin’ everyone.”
As you can see by the related link above, Christian Bale is also keen. So here’s my pitch, ah, you don’t want to hear my pitch. Let’s just say Keoghan and Bale would be great onscreen together.
As for Eternals 2, there are rumors it’s being explored. However for now nothing seems certain and if the cast are doubtful? Well, who knows?
What do you think as Bary Keoghan wants in on Waititi’s Star Wars but seems doubtful on Eternals 2. Thoughts below as always.
