Leonardo DiCaprio Explains Why He Doesn't Do Sequels

Leonardo DiCaprio is opening up about why he hasn’t done a sequel in his adult acting career and why you shouldn’t expect him to do one anytime soon.

“To me, every movie that I’ve done has been its own piece of individual art,” the 41-year-old The Revenant actor told Variety. “That’s not to say I wouldn’t do something that has sequels. Some of the greatest movies in the world – The Godfather – have had sequels. The Godfather 2 is fantastic.”

“You read a script, it’s got a beginning and an end. It’s hard to envision that being resurrected again. It just hasn’t happened,” Leo added.

Leo was reportedly on studio wish lists to play the roles of Spider-Man, Anakin Skywalker, and Robin.

The only sequel that Leo has appeared in was a horror movie called Critters 3, which was released when he was just 17 years old.
