The 49-year-old "Hawaii Five-0" alum and Asian-American actor is in talks for the film following Skrein's exit amid a whitewashing controversy, according to Variety.
Kim, who is of Korean heritage, would play Major Ben Daimio, a Japanese-American character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Skrein, who is white, voluntarily stepped down from the role in August.
"I accepted the role unaware that the character in the original comics was of mixed Asian heritage," the 34-year-old British actor said.
"There has been intense conversation and understandable upset since that announcement, and I must do what I feel is right."
"It is clear that representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voices in the Arts. I feel is is important to honor and respect that," he explained.
