“I’ve never had a conversation with Marvel ever”: Top Gun 2 Star Glen Powell Done Rooting for Cyclops, Wants To Be Team DC to Play Booster Gold

"I've never had a conversation with Marvel ever": Top Gun 2 Star Glen Powell Done Rooting for Cyclops, Wants To Be Team DC to Play Booster Gold

Glen Powell is finally getting the much-deserved praise and attention from Hollywood, after the massive success of Top Gun: Maverick starring Tom Cruise. The film is a sequel to Top Gun which was released in 1986 and became a cult classic. And it took almost 36 years to make the sequel. Top Gun: Maverick bought the much-needed footfall to theatres, but the director and producers did not expect the film to do as well as it did.

After Glen Powell’s stunning performance in the film, he has been rumored to play many DC and Marvel characters. Fan castings are at their peak, with some casting Powell in MCU as Cyclops, while DC fans ardently believe that he will be perfect for Booster Gold.

Glen Powell reveals his plans about acting in Marvel or DC

In an interview with Entertainment Times, the Devotion actor was asked if the rumors about him playing a superhero is true. The actor explained that he could not be less surprised by these rumors. His friends keep calling him up to ask whether he is playing Cyclops, and he always answers negatively.

The actor also clarified that he is not well-versed in comics, and so often he has to search up the characters, but he is a huge fan of Marvel and DC films. The actor talked about how he is constantly cast as Cyclops, he even dressed up as Cyclops on Halloween, but currently, the actor is extremely enthusiastic about Booster Gold. He said, “Booster Gold is really funny. Booster gold is a funny one.”

In another interview with Variety, he clarified that neither Marvel nor DC has ever contacted him for a film, and there are no such projects underway.

“Before Comic-Con, everybody was like, ‘Dude, are you Cyclops?’ No, I’m not. Nobody has called me. I don’t even have one contact info for Marvel, so I have no idea what people are talking about.”

Powell continues to deny all these claims, but recently when Gunn made the announcements, he mentioned that they are looking for an actor to play Booster Gold. Not just that, but the team at DCU is in conversation with an actor for the role. It is hard to overlook this as a coincidence.

Top Gun: Maverick has beaten domestic Box Office records of many legendary films like Titanic and Avatar. The film did exceedingly well with both critics and audiences. When Glen Powell was asked if the cast has an active chat group, the actor candidly replied,

“One of the fun things [producer] Chris McQuarrie does is he gives us little box office facts. He’ll be like, “Today, you just beat ‘Titanic,’ this is why it’s unprecedented…’ He conceptualizes what a special run this has been. Tom and Jerry have said, “We’ve been a part of some of the biggest movies for decades and we’ve never seen anything like this.” It’s special to see them react to it, especially on that thread.”

The interviewer also asked Powell if he shares memes or Top Gun gifs with his co-actors and director. The Top Gun star said that they almost always share random screenshots,

“Miles and I always send each other screenshots of random people who hope that Rooster and Hangman end up together. It’s, like, “The Notebook” but with Rooster and Hangman.”

The producer Jerry Bruckheimer tried to hint towards another Top Gun film sometime soon but there are no official updates on that. Given the film’s success, the cast and crew are more than excited to make another film. However, will the next one take another 36 years? or will we get to see it soon enough? Only time can answer those.
