Having shot to fame in comedy hits during the 1990s, Jim Carrey’s biggest role in recent years has been playing Sonic the Hedgehog villain Doctor Eggman. Well according to the latest rumours, the 59-year-old could well be signed on to play a classic Marvel baddie in the MCU. This news, which should be taken with a pinch of salt, comes from a moderator update post on the Marvel Studios Spoilers subreddit.

The leak reads: “Jim Carrey cast as MODOK for multiple Disney Plus shows, possibly as early as She-Hulk.

“(We’ve also been told recently that MODOK appears in Ant-Man 3, but that’s unverified.

“This user also stated that Jonathan Majors listens to his Kang theme song on set).”

Marvel Comics fans will know MODOK stands for Mental/Mobile/Mechanised Organism Designed Only for Killing.

The Marvel villain, aka George Tarleton, underwent mutagenic medical experimentation, which saw his head grow to a huge size along with his intelligence.

However, the side effects also resulted in a stunted body, meaning MODOK needs to use a hoverchair.

While Carrey could be playing the MCU’s live-action MODOK in the She-Hulk (2022) Disney+ show and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quatumania (2023), he’s already portrayed in animation.

Patton Oswalt voices a tongue-in-cheek take on the character in the adult Disney+ comedy M.O.D.O.K, which is set in another universe to the MCU.

Meanwhile, according to The GWW, there are a number of unannounced MCU movies already in the works.

Alongside the rebooted Fantastic Four, apparently, there are Nova, Thunderbolts and Shang-Chi 2 movies ready to start production in 2023.

And if that wasn’t enough, it’s also reported that Danai Gurira’s Okoye is getting her very own Black Panther spin-off show set in Wakanda.

The cast of Fantastic Four are yet to be announced, however, it has been officially confirmed that Tom Holland Spider-Man trilogy director Jon Watts will be helming the blockbuster.

The next two Marvel movies to release are Eternals on November 5 and Spider-Man No Way Home on December 17.

While the Hawkeye Disney+ show is streaming from November 24 and Ms Marvel is now set to premiere on the streaming service in early 2022.

While Thor Love and Thunder follows on July 8 and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on November 11.
