Word broke recently that Star Wars star John Boyega has had talks with Marvel about appearing in one of the studio’s upcoming superhero films. It makes sense, as not only do Marvel and Star Wars both fall under the corporate blanket of Disney, but also because Boyega is the perfect sort of fanboy-friendly actor to take on a role in the MCU.
Details on the discussion with Marvel are vague, but it sounds as though this isn’t something that would be happening anytime soon. It’s also not clear whether the potential role would specifically be for the MCU or possibly lap over into that kinda-MCU that’s developing at Sony for Spider-Man’s supporting characters. That said, it’s still fun to speculate about who Boyega could possibly play, so check out our list of potentials in the slideshow below…
Meanwhile, John Boyega has been busy promoting Pacific Rim Uprising lately. For more on that film, read up on what happened to the original film’s main character Raleigh Becket. Or check out Boyega responding to IGN comments.
