Jessica Chastain wants to be a superhero with a cool costume



During a recent interview with The Guardian, Jessica Chastain (Lawless, Zero Dark Thirty) got onto the subject of comic book films.

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

She is a fantastic actor so any superhero she plays will be brilliant. Who could she play? She has sort of played Black Widow already in Jimmy Kimmel’s movie parody (see it below), but there are plenty of other characters out there.

For Marvel there is Captain Marvel (who keeps being mentioned as possibly appearing at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron). Medusa of the be a good role for her. If the X-Men ever returned to Marvel Studious they could have her play Jean Grey. I could also see her playing Jessica Jones in the forthcoming Jessica Jones story. If she went cosmic how about Quasar or Angela?

For DC she would be incredible as Aquaman’s wife, Mera or how about Batwoman?

There are just so many characters to choose from.

If it ever happened who would you like Jessica to play in a comic book movie?
