Josh Holloway circling The Avengers?

Josh Holloway, finally freed from the multiple timelines of the Lost universe, might be considering a venture into the similarly labyrinthine world of Marvel comics.

According to Avengers News, Holloway and his people (the others?) have been speaking to Marvel about possibly joining The Avengers movie and starring in his own spin-off film further down the line.

It is unknown what character Holloway might play, but Avengers News offers three possible suggestions:

Henry Pym/Antman (Edgar Wright has long been slated to direct an Antman film.)

Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Although Jeremy Renner looks close to nabbing this role.)

Timothy “Dum Dum” Dugan (S.H.I.E.L.D. team member; works under Nick Fury.)

Dum Dum Dugan is more ‘Sawyer’ than the other two roles, but I can’t see that character getting his own spinoff. The Antman film is most certainly closer to production than either a Hawkeye or Dum Dum movie.

Either way, I’m just glad to see that the very talented Holloway is gearing up for big things post-Lost. We’ll know more about Holloway’s casting soon enough. Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers hits cinemas 2012.

Discuss: Who should Holloway play? Besides Gambit, obviously.
