Thandiwe Newton Wants To Star in a Superhero Movie, But Not In These Kind of Roles

However, the 48-year-old actress added that there are certain roles she’s seen in the action movies that she’d definitely pass on.

In a recent interview with LAD Bible, Thandiwe shared that she has turned down a superhero movie before, because the role she was offered was “someone’s mom who just dies.”

“I was like, ‘Meh, no.’ It was more the role, you know what I mean?” she said.

Thandiwe would be open to another superhero movie, though, and currently, has been impressed with those with a real artistic edge.

“The perfect example is Taika Waititi, what he did with Thor: Ragnarok,” she says. “I love that the actors in it really want to push it too — of course they do, it’s boring otherwise, Jesus.”

Thandiwe went on, “As a genre they bore me, these big franchises, and I’m quite cynical about it too, because it’s just about money; it’s this behemoth of money that’s just like rolling forward gathering more money, right? But now I feel like there is a demand from both the audience, I think people who are involved in the movies — but certainly the world — that there is better substance around these superhero things.”

Just recently, Thandiwe called out one of her movies for cutting her role short.
