Buckle up, Prey’s Predator actor is heading to the MCU and Star Wars

The new movie from Predator franchisee, Hulu’s Preyhas made some big stars out of its tracks. Amber Midthunder, who plays Naru, the titular Preygets a lot of praise for his performance, just like Dane DiLiegro, who plays the Predator himself. And if DiLegro now has a bunch of new fans, they won’t have to wait too long to see him again, as the actor revealed he’s recently worked in both the MCU and Star Wars.

Although Dane DiLegro doesn’t reveal any details about his upcoming projects as no one is ever allowed to talk about them, the actor confirms to work for both Marvel and Lucasfilm, although he hints that he Weekly entertainment it’s in small roles, nothing bigger than playing the big bad of Prey. DiLegro explains,

I worked on a Marvel image that just finished a few months ago. And I’m currently shooting a Lucasfilm production. It’s not always huge title roles like the Predator, but to be involved in things under those umbrellas is an honor and gives me a huge sense of pride.

Dane DiLegro specifies working on a Marvel “picture”, which would seem to involve a movie rather than one of the many Disney+ Marvel series. Unfortunately, this only narrows things down, as it could refer to any of the many upcoming marvel movies. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3and Wonders, all of them have finished filming, so it could be referring to one of them. The latter two movies both wrapped filming earlier this year, making them perhaps the most likely candidates for a movie that wrapped “a few months ago.” If so, he could play any other alien creature. It is very possible that we will never see his face again.

On the Lucasfilm front, unless there’s a secret project we don’t know about, it looks like Dane DiLegro is working on Star Wars, like Lucasfilm’s two non-Star Wars projects, the willow series for Disney+ and Indiana Jones 5 was done with filming for some time. The most probable candidate, since the actor does not specify that it is about a film, is the Ahsoka The Disney+ series, which we know is still filming. Unless filming has started on other upcoming series like Skeleton crew Where The Acolyte.

While Dane DiLegro’s roles in these projects aren’t huge, he says he’s still pretty proud to be a part of the franchises. He probably came to them before most people saw Prey. Now that they’ve done it, there’s a good chance bigger roles will come their way.
