Few Brazilian actors have been as successful in their international careers as Rodrigo Santoro. Born in Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro, the actor has already participated in major Hollywood productions; for example “300” (2006), “double blow” (2015) and “Ben-Hur” (2016). However, there is a genre of the seventh art that Rodrigo has not yet had the opportunity to work: that of Super heroes! In an interview for the website Omeletthe actor talked about his desire to act in the Marvel. Look:
When asked by the journalist Marcelo Forlani if the Marvel was something that interested him professionally, the actor did not hesitate to reply: “Super!”
“It’s really cool because people on the internet, you know, in the comments, are always saying ‘hey, Rodrigo had to play a superhero character’, and I really want to. I never had the chance, but I hope I have.“, said Rodrigo Santoro.
