Okay, so those "Star Wars: Episode 7" rumors didn't exactly pan out, but maybe under the massive Disney roof, there is still room for Zac Efron in another big franchise. And hell, the kid is hot, starring in the number one movie at the box office right now "Neighbors." Plus, those abs. Amirite?

Zac Efron, Neighbors

Okay, so those "Star Wars: Episode 7" rumors didn't exactly pan out, but maybe under the massive Disney roof, there is still room for Zac Efron in another big franchise. And hell, the kid is hot, starring in the number one movie at the box office right now "Neighbors." Plus, those abs. Amirite?

Anyway, according to Latino Review, the actor has met with Marvel and even has a script in his hand for a role for an unspecified part in an unspecified project, so let the guesswork begin! Maybe it's for one of Marvel's Netflix projects like "Daredevil"? That would seem to be the most likely scenario if there is actually a script, because things like "Guardians Of The Galaxy" spinoffs or "Captain America 3" aren't in those positions yet. Maybe it's a role in "Ant-Man" that will be shooting very soon? Basically, it could be anything, given that the intel right now is pretty vague.

Anyhow, give us your musings below on where you think Efron fits into the Marvel-verse.
