Jessica Chastain, star of Christopher Nolan's upcoming Interstellar, Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak and Mama, and Zero Dark 30, recently questioned where the heck was the Black Widow movie and wondered why it was taking so long.

Now the actress states she not only wishes she could have been Black Widow, but Jessica Chastain also says she wants to do a superhero movie.

Speaking with the Guardian, Chastain offers:

“I would love to do a superhero movie! I would have loved to have played Black Widow.”

It's noted that Jessica Chastain had opportunities to play in superhero movies, with mention she dropped out of Iron Man 3. However, it turns out Chastain doesn't want to play a supporting role -- she wants to play the superhero role.

 “A couple of times I’ve gotten really close. The problem is, if I do a superhero movie, I don’t want to be the girlfriend. I don’t want to be the daughter. I want to wear a fucking cool costume with a scar on my face, with fight scenes. That’s what I’d love.”

So any ideas which superhero Jessica Chastain could play?

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn recently offered that the sequel will feature additional female cosmic characters

Our recommendation: How about Moondragon?
