Despite the countless Marvel Studios productions to be released over the past 14 years, there are still a handful of major Hollywood names that have so far escaped the MCU‘s gravitational pull. And one of those is Adam Sandler. The odds are that the acclaimed actor/comedian will wind up hanging with the Avengers one day, though, despite his recent comments on the possibility — in which he finally debunks a long-held rumor.
For those who missed it, Sandler has confirmed that, although he thinks Marvel’s movies are “amazing” and he’s a big fan of what the studio makes, he’s never been approached by the House of Ideas for any sort of project to date. While that may disappoint those who’ve followed Sandler’s career since his Happy Gilmore heyday, it will also come as a surprise for those with long memories of Marvel casting rumors.
