Stan, who is currently starring in the Marvel series on Disney +, has said he’d like to play WWE legend Ric Flair in a biopic, alongside his I, Tonya co-star Paul Walter Hauser as Arn Anderson.
During an interview with Collider, Stan was asked a question sent in by Hauser, who wanted to know when they’d work together again.
“We got to do that Ric Flair/Anderson biopic,” Stan said. “[Hauser’s] so funny. I mean, he’s such a big wrestling fan and I was a big wrestling fan too growing up. Like, I loved WWF and stuff.
“And we both have a kip-up. So, maybe Ric Flair. I’ll do it in a second if they let me. I mean, pretty soon, I’ll be eligible, I guess.”
If Stan does end up playing Flair, he’ll be the second member of the MCU to play a WWE Hall of Famer, as Chris Hemsworth is currently getting in shape to play Hulk Hogan.
Speaking about the film earlier this year, Hemsworth said: “This movie is going to be a really fun project.
“As you can imagine, the preparation for the role will be insanely physical. I will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor.
“There is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude. I will also have to do a deep dive into the rabbit hole of the wrestling world, which I’m really looking forward to doing.
“I’m going to be blonde, probably balding and with a ‘tache.”
