While Marvel has a massive fan following, there is one renowned actor who is the odd one out! Jason Statham has turned down Marvel’s invitation willfully and three times in a row!
It was revealed in Marvel’s interview, that although the villain vulture in Spider-Man was created in the 1960s, the comic writer later asked his artists to use Jason Statham as an image template to draw. When the TV series Dark Demon began shooting, Disney officially invited him, but they were rejected for the second time.
Reportedly, after finishing Avengers 4, Marvel sent him an invitation again, asking him to join the Marvel universe, and then Jason Statham once again rejected Marvel. Jason Statham believes that everyone could play this kind of a movie! The actor had no interest in Marvel movies and believes there is no challenge in playing a Marvel character!
Reportedly, he rejected Marvel’s invitation three times in a row, but after rejecting Marvel, he would personally call Kevin Fudge to apologize and regret that they could not cooperate.
