Alec Baldwin reveals that he was offered a role as the villain in a Marvel movie

Jul. 29, 2013by:

It's always interesting to hear what actors passed on roles in comic book flicks. We're then left to wonder about how horribly or how amazing their performance would have been.

During an interview on the Howard Stern Show, Alec Baldwin revealed that he was asked to take on the role as a villain in a certain Marvel film. But here's the kicker, he never says which one!

On the show, Stern asks why no one has offered Baldwin the role of a villain in any of the comic movies to which the actor replied:

"I have, but I won't mention which one. I don't want to undo somebody because they hired someone else to do it. But they asked me to play a villain in one of these Marvel Comics movies. I wasn't available, they wanted me to work a certain time. And because of my wife's pregnancy, I had to turn down two films this summer that I wanted to do."

Stern tried pressing the actor but Baldwin said he would only give details off camera. CBM did some guess work figuring that if the actor's wife is presently six months pregnant then Baldwin could have nabbed a role in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, or GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY? So which villain role could it have been? Happy guessing!

Marvel

I think since he said Marvel and not Fox he specifically meant a movie for Marvel which could have been the voice of Thanos or but more likely Robert Redford's character in Winter Soldier. If not a villain he would have been a PERFECT voice for Groot! I wouldn't mind seeing Baldwin in a Marvel property. .

For some reason

I wolud have wanted him to play Electro. No idea why, just think that would be entertaining.

Im betting on Trask, if this isnt bullshit. but i like that they went with Dinklage. it gives the character a whole new dimension and depths of motivation for his actions.

My guess it was, in reality, something he wishes was asked of him.

He would have made a great Norman Osborne in The Amazing Spider Man franchise. And I could have also have seen him as a character in Captain America 2.

But I would love to see him or Denis Leary as a Marvel villain in one of their future films.

Actually, Massive Ego is pretty much every Marvel villain ever.

I could definitely see Norman

But I could also see Trask. Hopefully, down the line, he'll get offered another role because I'd love to see Baldwin be villainous.

how about James Bond?

clicking on the link of the article (which doesn't have the entire sentence) my first thought was for James Bond. And now I kind of want to see Baldwin be a bond villain.

He was going to play a small time pick-pocket who kept running around yelling "what's in your wallet?"

I'd love to see Alec back on the big screen in a villain role.

My guess would be Agent Alexander Pierce in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

High up SHIELD agent - I could see Baldwin doing that.

I don't know if they're talking Marvel movies that are being filmed right now, or ones from a while back. Maybe Iron Monger?

Iron Monger was my first thought as well, but he does mention it was "this summer". I'm thinking previous commenters are on track and that it was either Norman Osborne or Trask.

You don't suppose it was Norman Osborn? Or Trask in DoFP?
