Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley joined the fans asking John Boyega about his Marvel future. The Last Jedi actress decided to join an interview between her co-star and MTV News’ Josh Horowitz on the recent Happy, Sad, Confused podcast. During the interview, the topic of the MCU came up and Ridley asked Boyega on the spot.
Boyega did his best not to disappoint and assured the fans that he hasn’t done any MCU movies. Boyega remains focused on independent stories and that seems unlikely to change. However, there are a few questions out there about what big project The Last Jedi actor will take on next.
"Trust me, I've had no talks, I haven't done no Marvel movies," Boyega said during the interview. "But I'm gonna watch 'em, I'm gonna be there in the audience though. I'm gonna be in the chair. Popcorn. Drinks. Bom."
Previously, Boyega was also interviewed by Men’s Health (via Variety)and was asked about any potential MCU projects that he might take on. The Star Wars actor said during the interview that the MCU thing wasn’t really where his head was at right now.
"That's not in the vision for me now," Boyega told Men’s Health. "I want to do nuanced things. . . . I want to donate my services to original indie films that come with new, fresh ideas, because I know it's real hard to top Iron Man in that universe."
In another interview with Comicbook.com’s Brandon Davis, John Boyega also acknowledge his love for indie space. Regarding any MCU projects, it seems like he isn’t planning to join the MCU at this point.
"I sat down with Marvel years ago, but that's not the direction I want to go at all. You know, now I just finished Steve McQueen's Small Axe. I'm also doing a movie called They Cloned Tyrone," he explained. "I'm also doing a movie with Kevin Costner, which is much more action-based. Just trying to extend that versatility. Just spread it out and see what character I can morph into with character work. And go back to where I came from which is the indie world."
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently available to stream on Disney+.
