Hayden Christensen is currently experiencing a career resurgence thanks to his involvement in Star Wars' hit series Obi-Wan Kenobi which saw the actor, along with prequel trilogy co-star Ewan McGregor reprise their roles as Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi respectively.
The show pretty much dropped a massive hint that Darth Vader and Obi-Wan will once again clash in a second season but as it stands, Lucasfilm has yet to announce whether or not it has been greenlit.
Now, Christensen is also rumored to appear in the Ahsoka series but it turns out that Disney could be making the most out of his career renaissance, and according to a new rumor, the 41-year-old star might be headed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As per the latest scoop from the folks over at Giant Freakin Robot, the Anakin Skywalker actor is one of the actors Marvel Studios is currently eyeing for a future MCU project. Unfortunately, no other details were given on his potential casting but the outlet speculates that Hayden is being wooed for a role in the Fantastic Four reboot as none other than Norrin Radd aka the Silver Surfer.

Hayden would definitely be a great addition to the MCU but I'd like to assume that his Star Wars tenure is far from done. If anything, he could still make a few appearances in the franchise as Anakin/Vader before actually taking on other projects not set in a galaxy far, far away.
Meanwhile, all nine films of the Star Wars Skywalker saga are available to stream on Disney+.
