Sam Asghari, the husband of former pop star Britney Spears, is an up and coming actor and is now reportedly determined to land a role with Marvel.
The 28-year-old Asghari, who has played bit part roles in other movies in the past, but is a model and personal trainer by trade,
now has high hopes of a more prominent part with the well-known media franchise.
Being an Iranian-American, part of his motivation to land such a role is to improve the image of those from his nation of birth in the USA.
"Sam wants to play a positive role model for young Persian men, rather than the villains they are usually portrayed as," a source told The Sun.
"He has been working on his screen fighting skills and has upped his training in mixed martial arts and undertaken stunt classes."
Asghari and Spears met on the set of the music video for Slumber Party back in 2016
and the couple started dating five months later. The pair got married at the start of June this year.
