PETALING JAYA, June 15 — Korean actor Park Seo-joon is reportedly the latest addition to the cast of the upcoming superhero film The Marvels.
Industry insiders claim that Park, 32, will be flying to the United States in the second half of this year to work on the Captain Marvel sequel, based on a report by Korean news portal Star News.
Park is currently wrapping up filming for the disaster-thriller movie Concrete Utopia in South Korea.
A representative from Park’s agency Awesome ENT kept mum when contacted by Newsen for confirmation on the Marvel film role.
