Zac Efron Rumored To Be Up For Marvel Studios Role

Zac Efron

Zac Efron could be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to a rumor being reported by the Latino Review. According to the report, Disney took note of how Efron's latest film, Neighbors, beat The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at the box office and has decided to sign the star to one of their own projects. Better to be working with Efron than against him, right? The report states that Efron was recently given a script for an upcoming Marvel Studios project. What project/role Efron is looking at is being kept under wraps for now, but the report speculates that it is most likely either the role of Matt Murdock in the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series or that Marvel Studios will be announcing Efron as Stephen Strange in a Doctor Strange movie at this year's Comic-Con. Again, this is all rumor and speculation for now, but Matt Murdock and Stephen Strange are certainly roles that need filling soon. The Daredevil series will debut in 2015 and a Doctor Strange film is expected to be part of Marvel's Phase 3 plans.
