It looks like a Star Wars actor might be moving over to a different Disney franchise soon. A new report suggests that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's John Boyega is being eyed for a new Marvel Cinematic Universe flick.

The report comes from We Got This Covered, which cites an anonymous source who claims that Boyega is being considered for a major MCU sequel. According to the report, the Attack the Block star could be cast in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Interestingly, the role that Boyega is being offered is that of Daniel Drumm aka Brother Voodoo.

It's an odd choice indeed considering that Brother Voodoo has already appeared in the first Doctor Strange movie and was played by Mark Anthony Brighton. Brother Voodoo only has a small cameo in the 2016 film so there is a possibility that Marvel might want to give the character a larger role in the sequel. However, it is important to point out that the casting has not yet been confirmed. With that in mind, it's best to take this with a grain of salt.


Although we're still not sure if Boyega will be showing up in Marvel's Phase 4, fans can rest assured that he will still be back as Finn in The Rise of Skywalker. There is a possibility that Finn will finally get the heroic story arc that he deserves after his sacrifice was stopped by Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Boyega will return in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which is scheduled for release on December 20.
