STAR WARS Actor John Boyega Doesn't Sound Keen On Those BLADE And GREEN LANTERN Fan Petitions

When it comes to a comic book role for Star Wars: The Last Jedi's John Boyega, characters like Blade and John Stewart are frequently put forward by fans. However, the actor doesn't sound keen on either...

John Boyega made a name for himself with Attack the Block before making the leap to a Galaxy Far, Far Away with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now, he's looking to enter a different part of the blockbuster realm by taking on a lead role in the upcoming Pacific Rim: Uprising. Time will tell whether or not that pans out for the British actor but may fans are more interested in seeing him play a superhero. 

Two characters frequently put forward (particularly in that seemingly never-ending wave of petitions) are Blade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and John Stewart, an African American member of the Green Lantern Corps who is expected to take on a lead role in the upcoming DC Comics adaptation.

Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like Boyega is particularly interested in either one of those heroes.

 
A lot of fans freaked out when you did AMA recently about you possibly wanting to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as either Blade or the DC Universe as John Stewart. At least this is what I have heard. A lot of fans have…
 
John Boyega: OH!!! Oh! Oh!
 
So, would you be interested in joining one of these big comic book cinematic universes?
 
John Boyega: I mean, yeah! I mean, that wouldn’t be a problem. I just don’t know who.
 
Well, there’s John Stewart, the Green Lantern. Blade at Marvel.
 
John Boyega: They’re doing a Green Lantern? (Negatively groans) Sss.. Hmmm…..Eghhh…. (Laughs) And Wesley, man. That’s Wesley for Blade. I would want to see Wesley.

It's easy to see where Boyega is coming from and if he does ultimately land a role in a Marvel or DC Comics movie, then it will be interesting seeing if he plays a hero or villain and if that character is a big name or a little more obscure. What do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts in the usual place.
