Fans were over the moon when it was first reported that K-drama favorite Park Seo-joon had been cast in the sequel to ‘Captain Marvel’. There were many theories that he would be playing Korean-American character Amadeus Cho and the successor of Hulk in ‘Captain Marvel 2’. The foundation had already been laid as Cho’s mother, Helen Cho was the doctor who appeared in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. But following the new announcements at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con, fans now think Park Seo-joon is set to play bisexual superhero Noh-Varr.

Well, according to SDCC 2022, the ‘Captain Marvel’ sequel is titled ‘The Marvels’ and we are set to get the new generation of Marvel superheroes with characters like Carol Danvers’ Captain Marvel, Monica’s Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel. Another male superhero of the new gen in the comics happens to be Marvel Boy aka Noh-Varr. He is an Asian character and joined the Young Avengers.

With MCU finally adding more diversity from POC actors as main leads, it was only a matter of time before we went from queerbaiting and subtext to introducing existing queer characters. Introduced as an anti-establishment character, Noh-Varr is a bisexual superhero who has been linked with Kate Bishop and Moonstone, as well as Hercules and Bishop’s boyfriend, Johnny Watts. The writer also shared that Noh-Varr was inspired by rockstar and LGBT+ icon David Bowie. And so fans are excited at the possibility of seeing Park Seo-joon play an Asian LGBT+ character in a mainstream Hollywood blockbuster.

With Amadeus Cho having a bigger role in Hulk’s storyline and Noh-Varr being part of the Young Avengers that Captain Marvel is a part of, fans think that Park Seo-joon will play the latter. And unlike initial rumors, the sequel is not focused on just Carol Danvers but rather on the new generation of Marvel superheroes. Well, whether our favorite K-drama actor plays Cho or Noh-Varr, fans are excited. Known for doing his own stunts and going as far as to learn MMA fighting and boxing for his acting projects, Park Seo-joon is no stranger to action. And with both of his speculated characters having exceptional fighting sequences, it means viewers are in for a good time.

According to MCU’s announcement at 2022 SDCC, ‘The Marvels’ will be released on July 28, 2023.
