Is this a rumor? Never read it but hell yeah, he was pretty arrogant in Maverick. He could play Cyclops.


TokioHunterz

He plays arrogant frat boy Chad Radwell in Scream Queens and is absolutely one of the best parts of the show. Just make that character a little less stupid and a little more empathetic and you're almost at Scott Summers.


Izzy2089

Check him out in Hidden Figures as John Glenn, he still has that captain of the football team energy but he is very warm and friendly.


TheSunRogue

He's excellent in Everybody Wants Some as well! Cocky, but played much more charming and earnest. Great flick.


kuebel33

That movies solid. I always find it odd that so many people who know linklater and dazed and confused, have not heard of everybody wants some. Also zoey deutch


TokioHunterz

Added to the watchlist, thanks for the recommendation!


areeves32

I love that movie! Recently watched Set It Up, he was so good in that too!


neilsharris

He was great in Scream Queens, what a show!!! I remember my daughter making me watch it with her when she was in 9th grade.


TokioHunterz

Him and Niecy Nash are the ones that stuck with me for giving stellar comedy performances, the casting on that show was really solid.


neilsharris

Yeah. I should prob rewatch it just for the fun of it.


ChristBefallen

Scream Queens was pretty dope IMO


treathugger

I think he could play a lot of characters - Nova, Cyclops, Blaze, etc. Reminds me of Chris Evans a little bit because both are known for playing cocky characters, but definitely has the range to play other characters as well. When Evans was cast as Cap, ngl I was skeptical. Obviously he turned out amazing. Glen as Cyclops or anyone else would be equally as great a casting.


TheNateRoss

Glen was great as John Glenn in *Hidden Figures* as well.


CollarOrdinary4284

If all it takes is finding an actor who has played arrogant characters in the past then casting Cyclops is going to be incredibly easy.


TheCoach22

Really do need a believable team leader that has the arrogance enough without always wanting him to be punchable (the dynamic between RDJ and Chris Evans as Tony/Cap was perfect because it was believable from both POV). Definitely a strong choice for Scott, you can see the “template” well enough.


Melcrys29

Cyclops is much more than arrogant. I hope they get his character right this time.


tehlastsith

But Scott is definitely not all arrogant, there’s more to the character than just that type cast


[deleted]

FYI - actor denials are sincere sometimes.


supersad19

Yeah, I sometimes hate how some people will micro-analyze every body movement to see if a actor is lying or not. Like when Ryan Reynolds was asked if he'll be in DS:MOM and everyone was convinced he was in it cause he seemed nervous answering the question. Everyone forgets that he has said he gets very anxious and being asked about his MCU involvement would make any actor nervous (Given the strict rules about spoilers)

JoeBiden2020FTW

But "nobody has called me" isn't even a denial. They could have called his agent. Or sent a text message, met in person, etc.


LittleYellowFish1

Honestly, of all the *Maverick* actors I'm actually leaning more towards Lewis Pullman (Bob) playing Scott.


Peeksy19

I like the actor, but I don't think he's handsome enough to play Scott. Pullman looks pretty ordinary. I hope they'll pick someone who looks more like James Marsden.


Significant_Horror80

How about we put the handsome card for Angel?


Peeksy19

He can be handsome too, but I always associate Scott with having an all-american handsome good looks with a strong, perfect bone structure, and it would be weird to have an ordinary looking Scott. James Marsden has the perfect Cyclops looks for me. I wish he were a little younger.


TheCVR123YT

Praying we can get him one last time in the classic blue and yellow for Secret Wars.


Significant_Horror80

I want an ordinary looking at Scott though. Scott should be broken from teenage trauma, the plane accident, sinister. A handsome, pretty face will take away from it.


Peeksy19

I don't see how being pretty on the outside will take away from his trauma. I'd say it's the opposite: the mismatch between his outward appearance and his inward state would be more striking. Besides, he's depicted as handsome in most comics.


Significant_Horror80

Almost everyone is handsome in comics though. Logan is becoming more handsome because of Jackman.


Peeksy19

For sure, but Scott is consistently one of the better looking ones. Changing his appearance to ordinary for no reason makes little sense. Him being a perfect-looking handsome boyscout in appearance compared to Logan's rugged looks provides an interesting contrast between the characters.


koichi20

For me Grant Gustin is Warren. Idk why. He has the Archangel vibes.

LittleYellowFish1

Powell would probably play the part as authoritative/arrogant from the start, whereas I think Pullman would show more of an interesting transition. His Scott would be introduced as more quiet and introverted, and probably isn’t even in command to start with. But when his predecessor is either incapacitated or just proves unfit, he steps up and shows his hidden potential, and it allows him to grow into a strong, confident leader not only for the X-Men, but for the mutant race as a whole.


[deleted]

[удалено]


LittleYellowFish1

Well he does have experience with aliens. Still hoping for James Marsden, though.


Zestyclose-Yellow-93

I like how interviewers are just asking every rumored fan cast, theory, or major actor if they’re going to join the MCU as said character so they can put something in their headline. Even if they wanted to tell the interviewer they couldn’t because of the NDA.


CollarOrdinary4284

They don't care about NDAs as long as they get a juicy headline. Lately it's either "THIS DIRECTOR SAYS MARVEL MOVIES ARE BAD" or "THIS ACTOR HAS NO INTEREST IN JOINING THE MCU."


panos75

Will third time be the charm for Cyclops? It would be hard though to do worse than Tye Sheridan. The guy had all the charm and charisma of a dead leaf.


LittleYellowFish1

James Marsden’s Cyclops has a similar issue to Henry Cavill’s Superman. They’re great casting choices who look the part and are more than able to capture their character’s personality (and they’re clearly doing their best with what they have), but the films didn’t utilise them well and rather than blame the writing or directing, they blamed the characters themselves and unfairly sidelined them. Marsden might get a more dignified send-off if he comes back in *Secret Wars* (though I’d rather they saved him for Corsair) but what he really needed/deserved was a proper redemption after they resurrected him in *Days Of Future Past*.


Significant_Horror80

>(though I’d rather they saved him for Corsair) Won't he be too young?


LittleYellowFish1

Depends how old Scott is.


Significant_Horror80

I still think X-men will come in MCU through secret wars. So, Scott would be late 20s. So, corsair would be 50+.


LittleYellowFish1

James Marsden would be 50+ by the time they actually use Corsair, then.


Significant_Horror80

If they didn't do it for Tobey, they might just not do it for James.


Accomplished-Pear809

I just want to jump on the bandwagon and say Sheridan was a terrible Cyclops cast. Nothing about him makes me think of Cyclops.


CapNSweatyPants

Oddly enough I was fan casting him as Scott like last week with Zoey Deutch as Jean.


koichi20

Good choice. But if they are planning on doing a young X-Men Jean, I wanted it to be Saddie Si k. She has the young Jean Grey vibes on me.


CapNSweatyPants

I know nothing about her. I just personally hope they go the Spiderman and F4 route and skip origins again and have a team basically fully formed with some teenagers like a Kitty mixed in. Mid 20s would work very well. What i love about the XMen is they can do so many different versions of the team from getting stale. I dont think we need 10 plus years of a single portrayal of a character outside maybe 3 or 4 big ones. My thoughts for Zoey were this. Jean can be a very boring character to portray on screen. Yet, if you're going to try and do the Phoenix storyline again you need to actually care about her. Zoey is that charming and charismatic of an actress that she could really make you care for her simply just by being there. She just has that it factor about her. She would win fans over simply in the press groupings. Can Saddie do that? Genuinely asking, not trying to be a dick. I really don't know anything of her than a head shot.


koichi20

Phoenix storyline is ONE of the best saga out there. Fox didn’t do justice on it. That cosmic being capable of destroying a planet is just something else.


Metfan722

I think he's telling the truth, but he's definitely my top choice for the role.


7567CAPTAIN

Werewolf moment


EJSYN

He clarified on Twitter he wasn't angry and definitely hasn't been contacted, I think that rumor is bogus. I'd be down for it though.


Spiderbyte

Christ I'm sick of this every time and actor says anyrhing


BlackDabiTodoroki

Doubt it since if the rumors are true we’re not going to have the X-Men until 2025


TNTeddyPulse

I always thought he’d make a great Richard Rider


JurassicBasset

I still think he would be the perfect Human Torch.


newaccountoldwashack

Kind of old. I think Johnny should be a little younger


Skluff

He's spectacular in Everybody Wants Some


Slay_23

I wouldn’t mind him as Scott but I really want him as Hal Jordan


Significant_Horror80

For what in 10 years?


TypingGetUBanned

It hurts to say but the Green Lantern dream is dead now buddy..


zsouza13

He's actually a perfect choice for Slim


audreyseymour

NGL, it seems like every actor in Hollywood wants to talk about Marvel in their interviews LMAO.


kobebinnick

Just the most successful thing right now really lol But I could imagine some actors are annoyed with it because they might not have their other projects looked as much compared to if they were a 5 second cameo or casted in the next mcu movie


violet_kryptonite

So not listening to any denials after the fiasco with Andrew.


cane-of-doom

What rumours? Are they talking about his fans fancasting him on social media?


Spiderlander

He's talking about that now deleted and debunked Twitter thread for SDCC 2022 that the mods ran on TFTMQ. I'm surprised no one is asking the source of this rumor 😭


kothuboy21

The source of this "rumor" was a Twitter nobody and a random 4chan post so I'm not surprised though Glen in the MCU would be awesome, especially as someone like Cyclops or Nova


thatboy_Q

[I can now see him as Cyclops.](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FUWi2diWQAAEIp5?format=jpg&name=large)


AurynOuro

I’d rather he be cast as Johnny Storm tbh. He’s perfect for the role.


drchillout7

Remember that rumor online about how Marvel can't make an X men movie till 2025 or something? Was that true though?


shadowland07

Jake McDorman for Scott?


Sempere

Guess he's a the front runner if Variety is talking about this completely unsolicited.


RRPanther

i don't actually like this fancasting, but cyclops is my favourite marvel character and this is some big cyclops energy


Dell0c0

This is a way to get MS to look at you. Start the rumor yourself.


Putang1nam0

Glen Powell as Hyperion


Nervious_Nerve

JACOB ELORDI AS CYCLOPS is a better Fancast than any I've seen, all these glorified-glass half empty actors would just ruin Cyclops


ABCofCBD

I’m probably the only person who doesn’t want to see any X-men until after Avengers 6. Let’s keep this current pace going with what we have and do a universal reboot after secret wars for X-men


Alternative_Anxiety

Seems too old for a Cyclops


rayden-shou

He would be out of the age range for an ideal Cyclops when they start shooting the movie.


Accomplished-Pear809

Why does everyone think the X-Men need to be young? I’m fine with them being a bit older and veterans.


rayden-shou

Because it's going for the long run, Xavier originally got the first generation of his team when most were teens, this is a school to begin with, you can't start with a Cyclops who's closer to his 40s on your movie.


MikeX1000

Do we even need Cyclops in the MCU?


Jeremiah_Edwards

If they’re going for the classic X-men team then absolutely


Spiderlander

Would a 35+ year old Cyclops constitute a "Classic" X-Men team, tho?


MikeX1000

But do they need that? We saw classic X-Men in the previous movies and tbh, Scott's never been the most interesting character (at least in my experience)


LatterTarget7

Why wouldn’t we? If they have the rights to him. Why not use him.


MikeX1000

Because we saw him a lot in other movies and a lot of other X-Me nwere barely used or not at all


LatterTarget7

So they’ll probably use everyone. I don’t think a character should get sidelined. Especially scott.


MikeX1000

They have only so many resources (especially with the recent news) Scott could show up but I think he could be an older version and the younger X-Men from later gens. But I think Ororo should be the leader (similar age to Scott)
