Elijah Wood is no stranger to starring in major, culturally iconic film franchises, having portrayed Frodo Baggins in the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy. Despite that, though, Wood says he’d still love to take part in some other big franchises, too.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about his upcoming film No Man of God, Wood said that he would like the chance to “play in a large sandbox” again, perhaps even in something like the Star Wars or Marvel Cinematic Universe series of films.

“I think that’s just inherently fun,” Wood said. “I haven’t had a chance to play in a giant sandbox in a while…Star Wars gets precedent because I’m a huge Star Wars fan. So more of that, certainly in the live-action sphere, would be awesome. But working on a Marvel film, I mean, there’s obviously a whole conversation that happens certainly in film Twitter about sort of the cinematic relevance of Marvel. Is it cinema? All this sort of s—. And whether you like superhero movies or not, they are inherently fun. And those movies are extremely well made.”

Wood went on to say that the “insane scale” of getting to work in that type of environment is something that he would find “totally awesome,” so it does seem like Wood is very keen on trying to find a spot to fit into the ever-growing options of major film universes.

While it remains to be seen whether or not Wood will get the chance to explore a larger film universe again, he’s keeping busy in the meantime. His latest film, No Man of God, was recently released and tells the story of actual transcripts between FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier and the incarcerated Ted Bundy.
