Is Marvel looking for Zac Efron for a future movie role?

May 15th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Zac Efron is big business right now as his new movie Neighbours – Bad Neighbours in the UK – has knocked Spidey off his perch in both box offices. And it seems Marvel have noticed.

Latino Review are reporting that Efron is on Marvel’s radar and they may want him to suit up in a future movie: “We can exclusively report that Zac Efron is being looked at for unspecified role in an upcoming Marvel Studios project. He was given a script for the project just recently and currently no one knows which part is actually in play. The only one that knows that answer is his Manager and he will not comment on it.”

Now the rumours will begin as to who he might be – Daredevil in the upcoming TV series? Doctor Strange in the (probable) Phase 3 movie? Adam Warlock (his cocoon was in the post-credit scene in Thor: The Dark World)? Who knows, but it looks like he is in their sights…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
