Director Peyton Reed Says John Hodgman Is Campaigning To Play MODOK In The MCU
Our friends at HeroicHollywood were able to sit down with Ant-Man And The Wasp director Peyton Reed about possibly bringing in weirder villains, specifically mentioning MODOK.
Reed not only likes the idea, but reveals comedian John Hodgman has been pestering him for the role.
“Not only have you mentioned MODOK but I will occasionally get texts from John Hodgman. He has long wanted to play MODOK. It’s his mission in life. He’s a huge Marvel Comics fan. John has been sort of lobbying for years “MODOK! MODOK!”. We always talk about MODOK because he’s maybe the most bizzarro character in the Marvel Universe.”
Franchise screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus had previously suggested they’d love a crack at writing for MODOK. You never know how they’ll attempt to use the Quantum Realm in future films.
