Pacino Open To Play A Marvel Character?

Al Pacino raised a few eyebrows and delighted others when a bit of a stir when he gave some great comments about Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy," calling it an "entertaining, inventive, beautiful film". He has now expanded on his comments, telling trade publication Deadline:

"It was not something I would readily go see, but my kids got me to go, and one has to draw the line at where prejudice starts and where it ends — that was good stuff. I recognized the ingenious stuff they were doing; the invention, the attractiveness of the way they were performing it. It had Shakespearian feeling to it at times. I was caught up in the big screen, the great sound."

So, would he do a Marvel movie if one were on offer?

"I would do anything that I could understand in terms of how I fit in it. And you know, of course if I could fit in it. Anything's possible. You know, I did Dick Tracy and I got an Oscar nomination, so come on. I mean, what can I say?"
