In a traditional instance of what may have been, MTV caught up with Tempo simply earlier than he went earlier than the highest brass at Marvel to check out for Peter Quill. However alas, it simply wasn’t meant to be. Tempo informed MTV:
“I am going in on Monday to satisfy all of them and audition for it, so want me luck … I am very enthusiastic about it. The script is nice … I’ve been [reading up on Star-Lord]. You need to know what you are doing. The character is loads of enjoyable. I hope it really works out. We’ll see. We’ll see. I’ve received to audition. I’ve received to go get it. I really love auditioning, so I am completely happy to go meet all of them and do it.”
It is actually enjoyable to consider the potential of Tempo having a a lot bigger function within the MCU. Though judging from his top, he could have been higher off enjoying Groot as a substitute of Quill. After exhibiting up as a youthful, ’90s different model of Ronan in “Captain Marvel,” there’s nonetheless an opportunity that Ronan may present up in a flashback in “The Marvels” tormenting the thoughts of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson).
Personally, I would quite see him in an element that did not require such an enormous quantity of make-up and prosthetics. Let Lee Tempo’s pure charisma shine by means of in one other comedian guide property as a substitute. With James Gunn’s involvement in the just lately introduced “Booster Gold” DC Studios sequence, Tempo could possibly be an amazing selection for the lead function, though Gunn has mentioned beforehand that they’ve one actor specifically in thoughts.
