Last year, Latino Review reported that Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling were up for the roles of Han Solo and/or Luke Skywalker‘s son(s) which did not happen at all. But this time, they’re super serious that Zac Efron has met with Marvel about playing.. something. Unleash The Speculator!

We can exclusively report that Zac Efron is being looked at for unspecified role in an upcoming Marvel Studios project. He was given a script for the project just recently and currently no one knows which part is actually in play. The only one that knows that answer is his Manager and he will not comment on it.
Could Efron be the flagship casting for Marvel’s move into a massive four-series Netflix push as “Daredevil?”
Efron could make a great Dr. Steven Strange or at least a big announcement at Comic Con come July.
Is “Guardians of the Galaxy” enough fun to make Marvel think a solo Nova film could bring in the audience that strays outside the Star Wars franchise? Or could he be let’s say Adam Warlock?

And I’m going to cut you off at Adam Warlock because I don’t have time to sit here and get into that, or your next wild guess which was Black Bolt even though – *turns Blake Lively post around so it can’t see* – an Inhumans movie would be the tits. What I will do, however, is post this recently unearthed concept art from back when Fox was trying to get Mel Gibson to play Wolverine:

But before all of you kill yourself for living in a world where this didn’t happen, allow me to direct your attention to an even better Wolverine that can still (and goddamn should) happen and won’t give Hitler’s ghost an erection. “A claw man! Vhy didn’t I zink of dat? Stupid scientists vith zare gas chambers. I shall haunt dare dreams!”

  1. That Mel Gibson Wolverine does look pretty cool. But I suspect he would’ve had a much different WWII experience than the comic book Logan would’ve.

  2. This makes sense. He made Disney a lot of money in those High School Musical movies. I bet they want him as Daredevil.

  3. If he’s Iron Fist, I’m flipping tables over…and then I will sit down and watch like a good little fanboy. As an aside, the new Iron Fist book is nuts in an awesome way.

  4. Forget Efron. Who is the brunette in the pink shirt?

  5. Frank Burns

    He’d be great as “Cocaine Rehab Man” if they also cast Lindsay Lohan as, well, Lindsay Lohan. Or, he could be “Can’t Act, Man” because we’ll all be thinking that regardless.

    Since I haven’t heard of any of the other characters Fish mentions, I’m going to bet on Daredevil, because Hollywood can’t seem to recycle the exact same comic book movies fast enough. I’m assuming that there are at least two more Batman “reboots” already planned and/or being filmed for when the Affleck one is done.

    • I would tend to agree, but since Daredevil will be a Netflix series, me thinks Efron still wants to be on the big screen before his drug addiction shuffles him off to the smaller screen.

  7. Jaime

    Calling it now: He’s going to be playing Nova.

    I honestly thought that was Neil Young.

  9. daredevil is my fav and efron better not be dd.
    and dd doesnt need lol tatts.
    if they go young badass dd then i want caleb landry jones.

    Wolverine’s gonna burn down your house unless you blow him.
    That’s what I take away from this blog encounter.

    What is with the sororrity tattoo on his arm? (See the chick with pink t-shirt)

    I guess Marvel Universe is becoming all inclusive so they will probably create a gay super-hero who wears ass-less chaps.

    What I really want to know is did he and Demi Moore hit the sack together or not?

  13. just say'n

    I’m not sure having a guy who brings condoms to the opening of a childrens movie ought to be considered for parts that might put him in contact with children.

    Oh wait…this is Hollywood…of course he ought to be in the movie.
    Will Bryan Singer or Woody Allen be part of the production team?

  14. Pretty sure I saw that Gibson sketch in a History Channel documentary about Nazi superweapons.

  15. do superheroes typically have douchebag frat tattoos on their arms? so disappointed.

    • Don’t be stupid. That’s obviously a shot from that realistic movie he’s in with Rogan about the young family who moves next to a frat house.

        yes, intelligence is generally correlated to being up-to-date on what Zac Efron’s latest movie is. Read what you wrote again and try not to mock yourself.

  16. I bet he’s just spouting more crack lies. His last movie did well so he’s trying to land a franchise gig. Same crack story he tried to crack feed people about Star Wars.

  17. He plays a super hero name White Pony who snorts up all the coke so the kids wont get into it.

    Why are you keeping your nerd shit hidden from Blake Lively? She married the Green Lantern…

    • Swearin

      And since I brought it up, is this all it takes to be the lead in a comic book film now? A ripped torso and the ability to adequately speak words? Ryan Reynolds was Green Lantern, Chris Evans was Capt. America, C-Tates is going to be Gambit, and now Zac goddamn Efron gets to maybe be Daredevil?
