In the meantime, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has already won over the biggest Hollywood stars for the films: Cate Blanchett (“Thor: Day of Decision”), Christian Bale (“Thor: Love and Thunder”) and Angelina Jolie (” Eternals ”) are already or will be featured in a Marvel film.

In theory, that could change. Because Wood announced his interest in the MCU in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. But he would prefer to play in “Star Wars”:
“I think it’s just inherently fun. I haven’t had the opportunity to play in a huge sandpit for a long time. Star Wars comes first because I’m a huge Star Wars fan. So more of that, especially in the live action area, would be great. But working on a Marvel movie, I mean, there’s of course all this discussion on movie twitter about the cinematic relevance of Marvel. Is it cinema All that crap. And whether you like superhero films or not, they are just fun. And these films are extremely well made. “

“Lord of the Rings” star Elijah Wood would like to be part of a huge project
Elijah Wood already spoke a character in the animation series “Star Wars: Resistance”. Even so, of course, there would be nothing to prevent it from appearing in a live-action film or series. Even in the MCU there are still more than enough characters that could appear. Working on such a huge project would be great fun, the actor adds. In the last few years Elijah Wood has played increasingly in smaller productions, such as in the horror comedy “Come to Daddy” and most recently in the crime drama “No Man of God”. The MCU would definitely be a great change again.
Regarding an appearance in the “Lord of the Rings” series from Amazon, the actor also made it clear: “I mean, there is no place for Frodo Baggins these days.” However, he would definitely like to visit the set to see how they deal with the universe.
