Oscar Award-winning-actor Matthew McConaughey lets it be known he would be up for a role in a DC or Marvel movie.
Matthew McConaughey even states he's been in talks (via Variety).
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 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.
McConaughey continues with mention of what it would take to convince him to don a cape, and at the same time, why he's hesitant.
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.
Any ideas who McConaughey could play? Right off the bat, villains came to my mind. Brainiac? Mr. Sinister? Maybe a Doctor Strange villain?
