Stranger Things Actor Shares Reason for Losing Interest in Joining the MCU

Stranger Things Actor Shares Reason for Losing Interest in Joining the MCU
Finn Wolfhard (Netflix)

Finn Wolfhard, known for his roles in Stranger Things and the Ghostbusters franchise, recently shared candid thoughts on the prospect of joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In a Vanity Fair video where he was hooked up to a lie detector, Wolfhard admitted that he had once expressed interest in joining a Marvel film. However, when asked if he had lost interest due to recent “mid” performances of MCU films, he bluntly responded with a “Yes.”

Despite his success in major franchise roles, Wolfhard doesn’t believe that his involvement alone would significantly impact the quality of a Marvel movie. He expressed skepticism about his ability to “save the Marvel franchise alone as an actor.”

This sentiment reflects a growing sentiment among actors regarding the appeal of the MCU. While some, like Wolfhard, are hesitant due to recent criticisms and concerns about the demanding nature of long-term commitments to the franchise, others, such as Wolfhard’s Stranger Things co-star Joseph Quinn, eagerly embrace opportunities within the Marvel universe.

Quinn’s casting in The Fantastic Four, despite online speculation, demonstrates that not all actors share Wolfhard’s reservations. However, the decision to join the MCU is a personal one, with some actors preferring less involved projects or being deterred by the perceived limitations of superhero cinema.

Despite recent challenges, Disney is unlikely to abandon its most lucrative franchise. With a shift towards a “quality over quantity” approach under Bob Iger’s leadership, the MCU may regain its allure for actors like Wolfhard in the future. While the franchise has faced criticism, its enduring popularity and potential for growth suggest that opportunities within the MCU will continue to be enticing for many actors.
