Jessica Chastain and Marvel’s Phase Three

Posted in The Screening Room by - November 04, 2014

According to CBM, Jessica Chastain has kept in contact with Marvel after rejecting the Rebecca Hall role in Iron Man 3. The quote from her MTV interview is below:

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? 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. There was 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.’

Now what does this mean exactly? Like every big name in Hollywood, Marvel has been in contact with her, but there’s a good chance nothing comes of it. However, I could definitely see her as Carol Danvers for the Captain Marvel film. Perhaps, they’re looking even farther in the future…..Jessica Chastain as Medusa in the Inhumans anybody?

She did tweet this after the interview, but it wouldn’t be the first time an actor has been less than frank about their future roles:

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.
