Jessica Chastain Has Talked Playing a Superhero with Marvel

Jessica Chastain has been vocal in the past about her feelings that there should be a female superhero and now she says she has had a discussion with Marvel about possibly playing one!

“We’ve talked about aligning our forces in the future. 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?” Jessica told MTV.

“Whatever it is, I want a fight scene. I could be an incredible villain. I could be a hero. I want a cool outfit, and I want to kick ass,” Jes added. “There was a thing…I don’t want to say too much – but there was one thing, there was a possibility in the future of the character becoming… And I was like, ‘I understand that, but I want to do it now.’”

Jessica later took to her Twitter account to add: “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.”

    She’s so thirsty. I get that she only has a few viable years left but give it a rest.

  • VanityInsecurity

    thirsty? Impossible to be thirsty when you are super talented..and she looks better than some 20 something actresses.

  • Lassie

    She’s past the age of superhero.

  • Domino

    Ah yes, good old ageism. Besides, if you think 37 is old or past a superhero age (ehem, Iron Man is turning 50) you’re probably too young to know anything about life anyway.

  • Domino

    You are BEYOND creepy with the name and avatar, then trolling on Jessica. Ewww. Thanks for reminding me why I had left this site though. Back to the mature websites now…

    she’s way too old for CM.
    A cool villain? Yes, she can play that.

  • Sprite

    mysterious librarian by day, battles to save the cosmos at night. wait that’s..

  • Bridget

    Does the Black Widow not count or something? What about Wonder Woman? Cause, reading this, all I could think was “There are female superheroes, where have you been?”

  • Polly S.

    Let’s be realistic here, Marvel would NEVER cast her to play a super hero! she’s too old for that, there’s no 40 years old women playing super heroes, especially because Marvel always makes at least 3 sequels for each movie. She also doesn’t have the right body (aka silicon and an athletic body) to play a super hero, plus she’s a box office poison with zero charisma, she’s not Sandra Bullock nor Cameron Diaz, Marvel won’t waste its money on her.
