Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed that action star Jason Statham had turned down a Marvel movie due to his hectic schedule.

The 49-year-old actor was linked to the Netflix "Daredevil" TV series to play Bullseye, but he was approached for a bigger role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, reported Contactmusic.

"We talked with Statham about doing a role in one of our movies. It didn't end up working out, his schedule didn't work out.

"I was in another meeting a few days later and my cellphone rang. I didn't recognise the number but I answered it. And it was Jason Statham. He was saying, 'Sorry it didn't work out, maybe next time.' He couldn't have been nicer," Feige said.
