Star Wars: The Last Jedi star John Boyega has met with Marvel Studios to potentially play a superhero.
Bounding Into Comics covered Boyega’s weekend appearance at Awesome Con, where he discussed potentially joining the MCU. Boyega did not provide any further details about which character he’d play, noting it’s something that probably won’t come to fruition in the near future.
Boyega also made it clear he doesn’t intend to portray Blade and would rather see Wesley Snipes reprise his role as the vampire hunter. It would be a “spit in the face of Wesley [Snipes] if I took Blade,” he said.
