Zac Efron Rumored to Be Up for Unspecified Marvel Role!

Zac Efron is rumored to be in talks to play a part in an upcoming Marvel movie, though there is no word on what project this would be for yet.

The 26-year-old actor was reportedly given a script for an upcoming Marvel Studios project and very few people in the world actually know what is going on, according to Latino Review.

Some of the suggestions out there include Daredevil for the upcoming Netflix series, Adam Warlock or Nova from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, or something for the upcoming movies Ant-Man and Captain America 3.

The news comes off the major success of Zac‘s new movie Neighbors, which grossed nearly $50 million at the box office this past weekend.

I’m betting he has a choice of different projects now!!!!

Daredevil for sure (he looks more like him in my opinion) .. give the guy a chance, at the begin everyone is going to hate him for the role.. but then they will love it because this guy is really talented, same happened for Affleck.. everyone hated him at the begining for his role in Batman but then everyone is loving it.. these fan boys are never going to be happy about whoever they cast for a role, just do it and they would pay to see it anyway.

I think most of the people who is voting “I don’t want him” are hater or are just some people who has never seen a movie of him besides High School Musical.

Just give the guy a chance.. what can be wrong? he is a BoxOffice guy!! and Marvel is always great at the BoxOffice! people will love it for sure!

First that disgustin fat guy from Magic Mike get the role of Gambit and now Zac Gayfron? What the actual f^ck is happening…

# 4

BTW “Neighbors” will surpass the $60,000,000.00 mark sometime today (If not already.)

@OK: Yeah. he says that he isn’t interested in superheroes roles right now.. but it’s Marvel you know? anyway.. who really knows?

# 6

I’m a fan of Marvel movies. And to be honest I’m always happy with the decisions that they take. I would give him a chance or whoever is in talks even to that guy from 21 Jump Street. Is always good to see new faces in these movies.

@Omar: totally agree with you.

# 8

I hope he plays a villain. I think though he looks sweet, villain is more is type than the hero like in neighbors. I say, he’d make one hell of a sexy bad a$$ villain,

Latino Review….

Really JJ? Really? If it comes from them then it’s not happening.

@Omar My opinion is he said that in an interview as not to sound to eager. A celebrity shouldn’t come off as looking or asking for a role.

Lies. Marvel isn’t going to trust a big role to a junkie. His PR team is making stuff up. Rember when he was up for a Star Wars role? That was B.S. too.

Shorty could play a gay super hero, not a stretch…ensemble roles are all he will have now.

How does Zac keep getting so many movie roles? He’s not that good of an actor. And all those drug related rumors/scandals aren’t helping his image. I know Neighbors is doing well in the box office but still…I don’t get the appeal at all.

@OK: not a good number and sales are not related to Zach in the least. Anyone could have played the supporting frat boy role.

@Omar: What? No everyone does not love Affleck now. People will always love Batman. They tolerate Affleck, most make fun of it or just don’t care.

Most people don’t “love” it.

Any – As long as Zac is SHIRTLESS in it, I don’t care!

@Conan: not a good number? Movie hasn’t even been out for a week. How else do you explain the 53% female audience?

@Omar: I definitely agree with you. You hit it spot on.

This probably ended like Star Wars rumours, which he didn’t get cast in the movie.

@tree: yes, a villain. He could definitely pull that off. That would be awesome.

I need to get up on my comments. I don’t remember any of theses people lol.

@Conan If anyone but Zac had the role of eddy Sanders “Neighbors” would not of done so well. Try to deny it all you want but Zac is a very big part of it’s success.

And what hero or heroin(?) might that be? Coke Head? Wonder Molly?

Wow, I meant “comics” lol

@GradyB Don’t be to quick to dismiss things. Read the original article there is still a chance that Zac (Or someone else) is going to be offered a major role in “Star Wars”. They are introduced near the end of the “Star Wars VII” and continue.
Zac did go in for a reading.
