STAR WARS Actor John Boyega Dismisses Claims He's Nabbed A Secret Marvel Cinematic Universe Role

John Boyega is frequently linked to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the Star Wars actor has now dismissed rumours that he's shot a secret role for Marvel Studios. Find more details after the jump...

John Boyega put himself on the map in Attack the Block, but was shot into the stratosphere after being cast as Finn in the Star Wars sequels. With that, he became a global megastar, and while there's no denying his character was wasted across that trilogy, there's a lot of excitement to see what Boyega could do in another big franchise.

This could explain persistent rumours about him joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including claims he's shot a secret role in an upcoming Phase 4 movie or TV show. 

However, during a recent interview with Men's Health, Boyega explained why he's not looking to head down that route with his career.  "That's not in the vision for me now," he said. "I want to do nuanced things. I want to donate my services to original indie films that come with new, fresh ideas, because I know it's real hard to top Iron Man in that universe."

The actor has a lot of exciting projects on the horizon, including The Woman King, Breaking, and The Test. The fact that he's avoiding blockbuster fare is understandable, and after Chaos Walking proved to be something of a disappointment, we've seen Daisy Ridley similarly shift focus. 

Things can always change, and we'd be shocked if Boyega doesn't lend his talents to a major superhero blockbuster at some point in the not-too-distant future. There are a lot of characters he'd be a great fit for, of course, with Blue Marvel and John Stewart among the heroes the actor has most often found himself linked to. 

It's worth noting that there's no way Boyega was going to confirm that he has a secret MCU role in this interview. With that in mind, there's always a chance he could show up in anything from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to The Marvels, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Which superhero character do you think Boyega would be a good fit for?
