As more and more Hollywood stars join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans are wondering what role this Hollywood heartthrob can perfectly embody.

Just this year alone, Feige and Co. have welcomed Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Charlize Theron and John Krasinski into the fold, and it looks like it's high time for Marvel to cast Timothée Chalamet. The young actor is very busy right now, but a good paycheck and a cleverly written script will surely work wonders. The MCU is clearly becoming the perfect place to showcase the actor's diverse talents, and fans are ready to see the 'Dune' actor in full comic book garb.

In a thread on Reddit fans decided to speculate on a suitable role for Chalamet, with opinions ranging from powerful superheroes to the most down-to-earth villains. But one idea prevailed among all the others – Chalamet would be just perfect as the new version of Harry Osborn, the spoiled son of a multimillionaire and the supervillain Green Goblin. However, some people are unsure about this casting, recalling the events of 'No Way Home'.

"I feel like they won't be doing Harry Osborn. Mostly just because Peter didn't know a Norman Osborn in his world and Norman from NWH said there was no Oscorp. So I don't think there's a Norman. And therefore probably not a Harry." – /Danishroyalty.

Others cite Chalamet's ego as the main obstacle to him being chosen for the role of Harry Osborn.

"Harry… I don’t know, feel like he’d want a lead role. Even Zendaya didn’t get much to work with." – /Tornado31619.

But if Feige decides to continue his auteur-friendly approach that he developed in 'Moon Knight', who knows, maybe with the right script and a great team behind the camera we can see Chalamet in the MCU in the coming years.

"And to build on that, it's all about who ends up making the project. It is clear Oscar, Ethan, and Mohamed had a blast putting Moon Knight together and wouldn't have done it if they were simply hired and had no input on the story and characters. If Michael Bay was making Dune, Chalamet would not be doing it. It's as much a genre piece as Guardians, but Chalamet is clearly passionate about the team behind it (as he should be, Dune was excellent!)" – /simonthedlgger.
