John Boyega will not be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe… for now

John Boyega already has a massive franchise under his belt thanks to his role in Star wars sequel trilogy, but that hasn’t stopped rumors from swirling that he’s also set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. John Boyega’s name has been brought up in relation to various roles over the years, and there have even been rumors that he’s already filmed a secret Marvel appearance, but it turns out that a Marvel role isn’t something the actor is interested in in.

While talking to Men’s healthJohn Boyega commented on the frequent Marvel rumors, but said it’s not in the cards for him, at least not now.

It is not in the vision for me now. I want to do nuanced things. . . . I will donate my services to original indie films that come with new fresh ideas because I know it’s really hard to top Iron Man in that universe.

Given that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is likely to continue for some time, I imagine there will be a role for John Boyega if and when he wants it. But the actor has enough to keep him busy as he has three films releasing this year alone.

First up is Break, a thriller based on the true story of a Marine veteran who stages a botched bank robbery. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and is slated for a August 26 release. The next will be The female king, a historical thriller that tells the story of the Dahomey Warriors, a fearless group of women led by Viola Davis’ General Nanisca. Boyega plays the conflicted ruler, King Ghezo. The female king will debut at Toronto International Film Festival later this year before it hits theaters September 16. Boyega’s last film this year is They cloned Tyronewhich he described as a “unique and strange story that blew [him] away.” Boyega stars alongside Jamie Foxx and Teyonah Parris, but the film will find him playing several clones aged decades. It’s also the most fun he’s had on set in a while. “We filmed all over Atlanta so you can imagine the energy,Boyega said. “We in the strip clubs, we in the streets. It was a joy.
