Being a rising star in Hollywood, Jeremy Allen White has seen the door to get into the big blockbusters when he was considered for a huge movie role. However, acting for the actor was a bit different, at least choosing the scripts. Perhaps, it was similar to Martin Scorsese’s anti-Marvel ideals. The actor said he had an attitude which ended up in a resounding “f*ck you” from the Marvel Studios.

“I had a meeting for a kind of Marvel-y movie, and I had an attitude. I think I played it all wrong,” White said showing his skepticism (via GQ). “ Tell me about why should I do your movie,” White asked the studio executives. “They were like, ‘F*ck you,’” White says. “And I was like, ‘Right on,’” he added.

The terrible meeting with the huge Superhero brand has cost White which could be the biggest project of his career. Fans have reacted to White’s arrogant remark which led Marvel Studios to opt out.

Most fans are in disbelief as the actor’s attitude cost him a huge potential to add a blockbuster title to his resume. But for White, he is yet to develop his liking for superhero flicks. “I am confused at how the pinnacle of an actor’s career has ended up in that place,” he told GQ. “They get really good filmmakers to do those movies and obviously they get really good actors to do those movies. I played it the way I wanted to play it.” Obviously, he doesn’t regret it. Now, fans took to X to reveal their say on the matter.

While many fans have said that it was a bad decision, several others hailed the actor’s attitude arguing the fact that an actor shouldn’t compromise. Further, some said, “Rising actor shouldn’t board a sinking ship.” Regardless, White’s comment has created considerably a huge buzz on the internet.
