During a recent performance at Fan Expo Boston, a representative Comicbook.com asked Ewan McGregor to share his thoughts on joining the MCU. However, the question seemed to take the Scottish actor by surprise, causing him to share some conflicting thoughts on the matter.
According to the Trainspotting star, he’s not about to add another mega-franchise to his plate right now, mainly because he’s interested in focusing on some smaller projects in the future. “I dont know. I don’t know if I want to do this. Because I like doing different jobs,” he said. “This is true. I love directing. I would like to be in the theater again. I definitely want to do it again, you know, I’m in this Star Wars world. I feel like I don’t need another. .. I’m not looking for it anyway.
Of course, in the world of entertainment, you can never say never. So McGregor didn’t completely give up on the idea of joining the billion-dollar Marvel franchise at some point. “I feel like I shouldn’t say I won’t do it because two years from now you’ll be like, ‘You said you never intended to do this! But I’m not specifically looking for it,” he added.
