Very few details are known about the new Peter Pan remake that Disney has recently been working on. Last week, we learned that Margot Robbie has been rumored to play Tinker Bell, in the production being referred to as Peter Pan and Wendy. While the idea of Robbie portraying “Tink” is very exciting, some new rumors are coming down the pike! Shuler from The Illuminerdi is reporting that the role of Captain Hook has been offered to Joaquin Phoenix.
Phoenix has been sweeping through the awards circuit this year, and has received high praise for his role in Joker. His performance in the role has landed him a nomination for “Best Actor” at the Academy Awards this coming weekend. As mentioned by The Illuminerdi, Phoenix also has previous experience with Disney: he voiced Kenai in the 2003 animated film Brother Bear. The writers at MickeyBlog think he would undoubtedly do a fantastic job if cast as the next Captain Hook!
The Next Captain Hook?
The Illuminerdi is also suggesting that Peter Pan and Wendy may be targeted for the Disney+ streaming platform, though time will certainly tell. The story of Peter Pan has been told many times over the years, but we are very curious to see how Disney will execute this beloved tale. What do you think, will Joaquin make a great Captain Hook? While nothing has been confirmed, be sure to let us know your thoughts on this exciting rumor!
