While promoting Monarch: Legacy of Monsters at 92NY on Wednesday (November 29), Wyatt was asked about his role in the upcoming MCU movie.

“I have confidence it’s gonna be good,” he said, per THR. “I know everybody is sort of on this Marvel train right now of things not going so well.”

The star also commented on his relationship with director Jake Schreier.

“I know Jake so well and I know how smart Jake is and how much he cares about making something interesting and different and utilizing everyone’s talents to the best of their ability. And the story that I think they’ve come up with is really interesting — I know parts of the story and how the story works, I can’t talk about it. But it’s not a straightforward Marvel movie as you’ve seen in the past,” he continued. “I think that it’s gonna be a lot of fun but I think it will be something that hopefully Marvel fans will look at and go, ‘Oh OK, this is a little different, let’s go hard at it.’ And as far as how we are approaching it, it’s time to go to work a little bit, it’s time to make a good Marvel movie, so let’s do that and work hard at it and don’t take things for granted.”
