John Boyega, who is obviously known for playing FN-2187 or Finn in the newest Star Wars Trilogy, is a huge Spider-Man fan. Working with J.J. Abrams in the final film of the Skywalker Saga is a pretty significant achievement if you ask me and it seems that Abrams felt that had to be rewarded. No matter what you think of the trilogy itself, John was a fantastic addition to the Star Wars universe.
John could barely contain his excitement when he unboxed a Spider-Man themed Stormtrooper helmet given to him by J.J Abrams himself and it looks pretty amazing!

Now, this wasn’t the only Spider-Man themed gift he got after wrapping Episode IX. Daisy Ridley, who has been playing Rey since The Force Awakens, gifted John with a prop from The Amazing Spider-Man 2- a vial of serum straight from Oscorp Industries.
Considering that Boyega is a massive Spider-Man fan, do you think we will ever see him in a Spider-Man film? I wouldn’t rule it out completely. Back in April last year, John revealed that he has been in talks with Marvel, so it is definitely possible. I wonder who he could play.
The untitled Star Wars film, currently known as Episode IX, will probably mark Finn’s last appearance in the Star Wars universe. However, with the increase of animated shows and spin off television shows in production, there is always a chance John Boyega could reprise his role as Finn. Who knows!
Get ready to see Boyega in the concluding Episode of the Skywalker Saga, due out in cinemas on December 20th.
