Goldblum sat for an interview with the Toronto Sun to discuss his role as The Grandmaster and where he would like the character to end up next. He expressed his desire to work with actors he admires such as Cate Blanchett’s Hela or Del Toro’s Collector. The latter could very well happen since they are both of the same kin and Elders of the Universe.
“Well, I overlapped with one day of Cate Blanchett’s shooting, and she’s so spectacular as Hela,” Goldblum said. “I keep wanting to have scenes with her. We worked together on a Wes Anderson movie awhile ago – The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou – and I sure would love to do anything with her. But, in the comic books, the character of the Grandmaster is the brother of The Collector, played by Benicio del Toro, who I adore. So I would enjoy doing something with him. That would be fun.”
It would indeed be a treat to see the chemistry of these two actors on screen as they portray the Elders, a supervillain group of nearly extinct cosmic beings that focus on their obsessions such as collecting, gaming, gardening, and everything in between.
One can expect such massively cosmic team-ups to occur as Marvel Studios begins to usher in the latter part of its third phase of the MCU. An Elder of the Universe will be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War, adding to the already complex scenario when it hits theaters on April 27th, 2018.
