Zac Efron Is Apparently Up For An Unspecified MARVEL Role

According to Latino Review, the Neighbors (or "Bad Neighbors" if you live on the other side of the pond) is being looked at for an unknown Marvel Studios project. Could it be for the Netflix Daredevil series? That's one possibility, but there are a few..

The latest scoop from the Latino Review boys regards Neighbors star, Zac Efron. It seems that the R rated comedy's performance at the box office (beating The Amazing Spider-Man 2 pretty soundly) has caused Marvel/Disney to take notice, and the site report that Efron is being "looked at for unspecified role in an upcoming Marvel Studios project." Apparently he was given a script for this project recently, but nobody has any idea what the part is, and his management are declining to comment. Keep in mind that Efron has been rumored for a few comic book type roles in the past and nothing has ever come of it, but he has admitted to being up for Star Wars, and there's no doubt the young actor's star is on the rise. So who might be be up for?



Well, since he has a script it'd presumably be something that'll be heading into production sooner rather than later, and that narrows the field somewhat: We have the Marvel Netflix shows (Daredevil? Iron Fist? ..Jessica Jones?), season 2 of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (doubtful), and then the next big screen project we know Marvel have in the pipeline is Doctor Strange. Too young? Well, yes, but we don't know what the studio have planned for their movie incarnation of the Sorcerer Supreme. There are other options of course, but they seem the most likely. What do you guys think?

@Gusto

You can smell it too.
TheAbaryMan369 - 5/14/2014, 1:40 PM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Efron! I hate him so much! I don't like the idea of him being anywhere near Marvel.
MrNiklander - 5/14/2014, 1:40 PM

SageMode - 5/14/2014, 1:40 PM
Hmmmmm, interesting.
TheAbaryMan369 - 5/14/2014, 1:40 PM
Marvel would not be stupid enough to make him Daredevil. Maybe Rick Jones?
0megaDaGod - 5/14/2014, 1:41 PM
Thank you but NO
MrCBM56 - 5/14/2014, 1:41 PM
I can't judge because idk what role it is.
SpiderMiles - 5/14/2014, 1:41 PM
Richard Rider?

He could pull it off, I think. If Richard Rider's personality is pre-Annihilation Richard Rider.
SimyJo - 5/14/2014, 1:42 PM
For the love of God no - just no. Horrible choice. This has soured my evening just HEARING this as a possibility, however unlikely and unreliable the source.
Nomis - 5/14/2014, 1:42 PM
Luke Cage?

WinterSoldier33 - 5/14/2014, 1:43 PM
1.nova
2.captain marvel
3.Daredevil


i think it will be one of these
Rulk - 5/14/2014, 1:43 PM
Calling it! He's playing Spider-Woman...

Wasn't he also trying out / supposed to be in the new Star Wars film too? Not believing this... nope!
MrBlackjack - 5/14/2014, 1:43 PM
I could see him as Nova!
DEATHbyEXILE - 5/14/2014, 1:43 PM
MrReese - 5/14/2014, 1:44 PM
Channing Tatum No! Zac Efron hell noooo!!!!
MrBlackjack - 5/14/2014, 1:44 PM
(Rich Rider)
TheDarkPassenger - 5/14/2014, 1:44 PM
[frick] you if he's Daredevil.
MrCBM56 - 5/14/2014, 1:44 PM
Hope it's Luke Cage.
SageMode - 5/14/2014, 1:44 PM
Oh yes, bullshit coming from Latino Review. I mean it's not like how their scoops about Routh as Supes, Ledger as Joker, Batista up for Drax, BvS filming in Detroit! Paul Bettany for Vision, GOTG being the mystery Marvel movie for 2014 ever came true..................
kinghulk - 5/14/2014, 1:45 PM
hell no, keep him away from the MCU. hopefully this should be fake.
Destined - 5/14/2014, 1:45 PM
I wouldn't be surprised. Still say be would be a great James Rogers if they did a live Next Avengers. We'll see if this has any weight in time I'm sure.
Brainiac13 - 5/14/2014, 1:46 PM
I hope it's not DD.......Yeah....maybe Nova.
SuperCat - 5/14/2014, 1:46 PM
He is a sexy b*tch.

ezio619 - 5/14/2014, 1:46 PM
zac efron is a good actor, its that phucking high school musical stigma that has followed him, in neighbors hes got a bit of an edge, a dark side to him, there is a fight between him and rogen and efron goes INSANE! and its very cool
yossarian - 5/14/2014, 1:47 PM
If he is DD...I [frick]ing quit.
TheLokey1 - 5/14/2014, 1:47 PM
My guess would be Namor if marvel got the rights back
McGee - 5/14/2014, 1:47 PM
Please let it be Leather Boy...please let it be Leather Boy...

*fingers crossed*
MCUfan1 - 5/14/2014, 1:47 PM
I too agree with Devlin
MrMartinMarvel - 5/14/2014, 1:48 PM
I hear he's actually become a pretty good actor, so I'd be cool with this if it turns out to be true.
ezio619 - 5/14/2014, 1:48 PM
saying that ,i dont think he will be a good fit for daredevil
cipher - 5/14/2014, 1:49 PM
If he's DD.. I'll just have a new excuse to drink. Whatever, pineapple:

0megaDaGod - 5/14/2014, 1:50 PM
Marvel have set the standard for inside and outside the box casting, but it would take no less than the greatest trailer of all time for me to be cool with Efron in a role. Just please no
