Jessica Chastain has talked a lot recently about the fact there isn’t enough quality roles for women who aren’t named Meryl Streep, but she specifically has a hard on to see a woman in a superhero movie, so when she did an interview with MTV about an meeting with Marvel, the Internet assumed she was gonna be playing Captain Marvel. This run on sentence is now over, and it’s time for the blockquote from said MTV interview.
When Chastain stopped by MTV today (November 3) she openly discussed the tantalizing possibilities. Once rumored to be up for a role in “Iron Man 3,” Chastain confirmed she’s talked to Marvel about other roles. “We’ve talked about aligning our forces in the future,” Chastain said. “And here’s the thing with me… If you’re going to be in a superhero movie, you only get one chance. You’re that character forever. So why do a superhero movie and play the boring civilian?” “Whatever it is, I want a fight scene,” Chastain continued. “I could be an incredible villain. I could be a hero. I want a cool outfit, and I want to kick ass.”
Turns on, your raging comic book movie boner was a waste. Per Jessica Chastain’s Twitter.
Oops uh oh….I’ve never had talks about Captain Marvel. Was referring to a different film from over a year ago, in my recent MTV interview.
So she was offered a superhero role but didn’t take it yet still complains there’s not enough women represented in the genre? Is this kinda like when you ask a woman what she wants to eat for dinner or watch on Netflix? It’s kinda the same thing, right?
