Matthew McConaughey revealed last week that he had been reading scripts from both Marvel and DC, and that he’s actually talked to the studios about working on some of the them.
When asked if he would ever consider being in a superhero film, he said:
“I’ve read some Marvel and DC scripts and I’ve talked about working with them on some scripts, none of which I’ll share with you what they are — or were. Yeah, I’ve circled some of those. Nothing has been right for me yet. But I’m sure open to it.”
When asked what would convince him to actually jump on board one of these films, he said:
“It’s very simple for me. I look at the script. Is the opportunity exciting? Is the money that comes with it exciting? Sure. Is it the possibility of going, ‘Hey you can get on a train and it can be a franchise and you could do 3, 4, 5, and have a great time as some kind of superhero or anti-hero.’ But I would also look at something like that and say, ‘Hey, in success that means you are on the train for a while.’ Contractually, you’re going to return to the character over and over. It’s something I asked myself is it something I’d want to return to. Would I be excited to go back and put the shoes on the character again? Going and doing the press tour with that group of people again? I always ask myself those questions again. It starts with the story and character.”
There’s no word on what superhero film he’s been approached with, but a recent rumor suggests that he’s up for the role of Norman Osborn in the Spider-Man reboot that’s being developed by Marvel and Sony. How F****** cool is that!
