Exclusive: Could Zac Efron Be Marvel's Next Franchise Star?

– by Kellvin Chavez

Here’s a BARE BONES post that is just split into facts and speculation.

“Neighbors,” an R-Rated Zac Efron/Seth Rogen comedy, beat the crap out of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” at the box office and the mega franchising gods at Walt Disney heard the other foot drop: “It’s time to Efron up.”

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?

If Marvel really were doing Inhumans on Agents of SHIELD, would Efron be wasted as the mute king Black Bolt?

Has Namor sneakily moved it rights from Universal Pictures back to Marvel?

Is Efron the Man-Thing everyone keeps talking about?

Probably one of the first two, but at this point, it’s all speculation. What’s not speculation is Marvel wants Efron, like everyone wants Efron, because “Neighbors” is hot.

Disney declined to comment
