Zac Efron made a name for himself starring in Disney’s High School Musical series. He eventually honed his craft and acted in a variety of films and also became one of Hollywood’s biggest hunks.
While speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Zac Efron revealed he is ready to sign up for a superhero role. After Jimmy told Zac that there were casting rumors about Marvel looking for a star like Efron, the actor coyly replied, “Really? They could just call me.”
Back in September 2019, Geeks WorldWide reported that Marvel was “searching for a Jewish ‘Zac Efron-type’ who is preferably of Israeli descent” to play the comic book character Moon Knight. In the end it went to Oscar Isaac.
Jimmy also brought up the rumor that Zac was in the running to take over the role of Wolverine from Hugh Jackman. “I think Hugh’s still doing that pretty well, I got to give it to him,” Zac replied, before acknowledging he had a chance to discuss it with Hugh while they worked together on The Greatest Showman. “I guess I had my foot in the door on that one, I should go talk to him.” We will have to wait and see i Efron will ever become part of the MCU or not.
