Captain America Screenwriter Lobbies For MODOK In Sequel
Just last week Captain America: The First Avenger screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus confessed a desire to feature the Falcon and Sharon Carter in the sequel, which seems more likely than not to be set primarily in the present day. We can now add to the character wish list a certain Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing.
“I love MODOK and I think you could make a terrifying movie with MODOK but nobody seems to be on my side at the momentum,” Markus tells Hero Complex. Okay, so MODOK, one of Cap’s stranger Silver Age foes, seems far less likely than the Falcon to make an appearance. Still, it would be pretty glorious to have the massive-headed menace floating around, leading A.I.M. agents against Captain America and Agent 13 (the aforementioned Sharon Carter).
It gets even better when you see who Markus would like to see play the offbeat Stan Lee/Jack Kirby creation: Emmy-nominated Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage. It’s kind of inspired, really.
“I will win you over to Peter Dinklage as MODOK,” he says. “If he came around the corner and you saw him floating there you would be terrified. It would be amazing.”
Although we probably shouldn’t hold our breaths for MODOK or Dinklage in Captain America 2, we can all probably agree that the very idea of it is, yes, amazing.
