Former X-Men star James Marsden says he would be a fool to say no to reprising his role as Cyclops under Marvel Studios if the opportunity arises in the future and even stated he “occasionally” talks to his friend Kevin Feige, who got his start as an associate producer on 2000’s X-Men.
“I look at those three movies I was in and it became a huge part of my life. It was a family, all of them. And I was very grateful,” Marsden told Screen Rant. “That’s 40 years, at the time, of back story and iconic characters, beloved characters. So I’d be a fool to say no to that. Of course, I would [be open to it].”
Marsden portrayed Scott Summers aka Cyclops in 2000’s X-Men, 2003’s X2: X-Men United before he met his demise at the hands of Jean Grey a.k.a. Dark Pheonix in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. However, Marsden did return in a small cameo appearance as Cyclops in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Marsden’s answer to reprising his role as Cyclops comes shortly after an interview where he stated he would be open to the superhero genre despite it possibly feeling “a little strange.”
