There's no denying that Pedro Pascal's Hollywood career has skyrocketed over the last four years and of course, it's mainly due to his involvement in the Star Wars franchise as The Mandalorian. Since then, the fan-favorite actor already appeared in major franchises like DC (Wonder Woman 1984) and just recently, HBO's hit show The Last of Us.

Recently, Pascal expressed his desire to appear in a Marvel project and it looks like the House of Mouse has the same idea. According to a new rumor, the 47-year-old actor could be headed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney is quite adamant about making it happen.

Twitter user @Cult_of_Ember claims that Disney has its sights set on bringing Pascal to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially after the success of The Last of Us. While it remains unclear what project they want the Chilean actor to get cast in, some are speculating that he could easily take over Gabriel Luna's Ghost Rider role should the Agents of SHIELD star fail to cross over to the billion-dollar franchise.

The idea of Pascal jumping ship to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is seemingly inevitable, especially considering Disney owns both Marvel and Star Wars. But given how packed his schedule is, I think we can safely say that we're still a couple of years away from seeing him suit up as either a superhero or supervillain in Earth-616.

But given how Pedro is already interested in the prospect of starring in a Marvel project, the folks over at Disney definitely have their work cut out for them.

Meanwhile, the third season of The Mandalorian hits Disney+ on March 1st.
