Is there room in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a superhero who smashes enemies in the face with buckets of paint or knows how to grocery shop on a budget in the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War? If so, Macaulay Culkin–who first rose to fame in 1989’s Home Alone–would like to throw his name in the hat.
Culkin has officially put Disney and Marvel Studios on notice that he’s ready to be of service to the MCU in a tweet. “Hey [Marvel] and [Disney] there’s still time to cast me in part 2 of Infinity War,” he writes. “I’m around.” He also includes what he’s calling a reel to show the producers and directors of the film exactly what he’s capable of. In case you were wondering, he excels at wearing bunny ears and beating WWE superstars at thumb wrestling.

Unfortunately, there’s some bad news for Culkin. It actually is too late for him to snag a role in Avengers 4, as it’s already been filmed. In fact, it was shot back-to-back with Avengers: Infinity War. Voth movies wrapped production back in January.
The MCU isn’t slowing down anytime soon, though. There will be plenty of chances to integrate the actor if the powers-that-be decide it should be done. First, he’ll have to take off those bunny ears, though.
