“I think that’s just inherently fun,” he explained. “I haven’t had a chance to play in a giant sandbox in a while… Star Wars gets precedent because I’m a huge Star Wars fan. So more of that, certainly in the live-action sphere, would be awesome.”

He continued, “But working on a Marvel film, I mean, there’s obviously a whole conversation that happens certainly in film Twitter about sort of the cinematic relevance of Marvel. Is it cinema? All this sort of s–t. And whether you like superhero movies or not, they are inherently fun. And those movies are extremely well made.”

“I think getting to play again in that universe’s sandbox would be a blast. It’d be totally awesome, because it’s at such an insane scale,” he added.

While he hasn’t joined the cast of a Marvel or Star Wars film yet, he is slated to appear alongside Peter Dinklage and Jacob Tremblay in the upcoming superhero comedy Toxic Avenger.

Something major was just announced about Amazon Studios’ upcoming Lord of the Rings series
