John Boyega is ready to take down the Kiju in Pacific Rim Uprising. During the promotional tour for the film Boyega discussed some the possibility of him suiting up as a superhero.
During a chat with Screen Rant while promoting Pacific Rim Uprising, the 25-year-old actor said it “wouldn’t be a problem” joining another cinematic universe. The Star Wars actor has a lot on his plate already, but he seems interested in possibly jumping into the role of a comic book character in the future. Fielding suggestions from fans, however, he doesn’t wanna take just any old role. Asked about whether he’d take on the role of John Stewart or Blade, he groaned, “They’re doing a Green Lantern?”
As for the role of Blade in a possible Marvel-helmed film, he says he’s not interested at the moment. “And Wesley, man. That’s Wesley for Blade. I would want to see Wesley,” he says.
Fans have been reposted concept images of Boyega as Blade. But it seems that it is wishful thinking at least for now.
