Which superhero could the Barbie star lend her face to? One thing is certain: if the actor could choose, he would have very clear ideas! Ryan Gosling is going through a golden moment, professionally speaking. The role of Ken in Greta Gerwig's film Barbie brought him a great fortune, as well as an Oscar nomination for best-supporting actor. His performance of I'm Just Ken on the Dolby Theater stage was one of the highlights of the most anticipated night of the year, but that's not all.

The Canadian actor stars, alongside Emily Blunt, in the action thriller The Fall Guy, out in May. David Leitch's film, inspired by the 1980s series Dangerous Profession, premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, garnering mostly positive reactions. Steven Spielberg himself, as Gosling revealed, said he was a big fan of the film. As for the La La Land star, the surprises aren't over yet. The well-known insider My Time to Shine Hello, in the last few hours, has released a sensational scoop: the actor would officially be about to debut in the MCU. That's right: according to rumors, Ryan Gosling has signed with Marvel Studios. This is clearly a rumor to be taken with a pinch of salt, in the absence of confirmation. It is also true that the account, over the years, has proven to be most of the time reliable. Even when he dared.

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, upon hearing the news, can't wait and are wondering what role the 43-year-old could play and in which studio film. It is certainly not the first time that Gosling's name is associated with Marvel or, in any case, with the superhero universe. As is known, he was offered the role of Joker in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. However, the star refused, leaving Jared Leto to try his hand at one of the most criticized performances of his career. Why did Gosling decline the offer to come aboard the DCU? Furthermore, he would have acted alongside Margot Robbie, his co-star in Barbie, who played the role of Harley Quinn in the film.

The reason - disclosed by The Wrap - is very simple: Ryan didn't feel like committing himself to Warner for a contract that included multiple films. Apparently, this is a hard and fast rule for the actor. This is confirmed by the fact that Suicide Squad was not the first comic book film that almost involved him. Gosling was one step closer to playing Hal Jordan in Green Lantern (2011) before Ryan Reynolds was officially cast. He was also in the running for the part of Doctor Strange, which in the end deservedly went to Benedict Cumberbatch.

Remaining within Marvel, in recent months the actor's name has been included by fans in the list of possible interpreters of Doctor Doom. The person concerned, in any case, has a secret dream. In fact, there is a comic book character that Gosling would love to play: Captain Canada. Some time ago, in fact, after having denied the rumors that he was cast in the role of Nova, he commented: "I'm waiting for Captain Canada's call".

The superhero debuted in 1979 in the comic Captain Newfoundland. It is the latter who trains Captain Canada, aka Daniel Eaton, together with Captain Freedom and Mademoiselle. The character's superpower is the ability to communicate telepathically with other heroes. Until now we have never heard of him, cinematically speaking. However, with the ever-expanding MCU, you never know: who knows, Ryan Gosling's wish might not come true!
