Another actor who had been rumored to be involved in Episode VII, may have just confirmed they are in at least consideration for a part in the film. Michael B. Jordan was out promoting the Blu-ray/DVD release his latest film Fruitvale Station (an incredible film, I highly recommend it), when he was asked by WeGotThisCovered.com about the rumors, not only about Star Wars but the Fantastic Four reboot as well, surrounding him. Jordan responded with,
"With the Star Wars and all these other franchises, Fantastic Four and stuff like that, it’s good to be in the mix of those conversations. You know, it wasn’t like that before, so it’s kind of cool to be in those conversations right now,"
While this is by no means a confirmation of his casting in Episode VII (or Fantastic Four), it does seem to confirm that he is at least in talks to appear in one of those upcoming films.
