Timothee Chalamet is currently being eyed for a Marvel role.
Timothee Chalamet may have been overlooked for the role of Spider-Man in the MCU after reaching the final shortlist of seven candidates before Tom Holland was eventually selected to play the part, but he’s hardly eased up when it comes to gaining credibility as one of the best young talents in the industry.
When Holland made his solo debut in Homecoming (2017), Chalamet became one of the youngest Oscar nominees in the Best Actor category upon earning critical acclaim for his role in Call Me by Your Name (2017) at only 22 years of age.

He followed it with more spectacular turns in assorted titles such as Lady Bird (2017), Hostiles (2017), Beautiful Boy (2018), and Little Women (2019), but now he’s set his eyes squarely on blockbuster turf.
Chalamet plays the starring role in Denis Villeneuve‘s postponed $165 million sci-fi epic Dune (2021), which is planned to be the first of at least two sequels.
Meanwhile, he is also reported to be one of the top two candidates to lead Warner Bros.’ Willy Wonka prequel, likely to be released in 2023, ironically alongside his old Spider-Man adversary Tom Holland.

There were suggestions that he was inquired for Batman Beyond’s Terry McGinnis, and now we’ve learned from our sources that he’s currently in negotiations for an undisclosed role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Specifics beyond this are elusive, and there are numerous films at different points in Marvel’s development that filtering things down will be difficult, but it’s definitely just a question of time until Timothee Chalamet agrees to a multi-picture contract of some sort to a big comic book movie franchise.
