Matthew McConaughey Has Been Reading Marvel And DC Comics Movie Scripts


Are comic book movies about to enter the McConaissance?

Possibly, as actor Mathew McConaughey recently revealed that he’s reviewed a number of movie scripts with Marvel Studios and DC Entertainment. While the actor clarified that he hasn’t found the right role yet, he said that he remains open to the idea of playing a comic book character.

“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,” McConaughey said. “Yeah, I’ve circled some of those. Nothing has been right for me yet. But I’m sure open to it.”

As for what it would take to push him into a four-color universe, McConaughey said it would boil down to the right script.

“It’s very simple for me. I look at the script. Is the opportunity exciting? Is the money that comes with it exciting? Sure,” he told Variety. “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.”

    he read for the movie version of victor freeze...

  1. I could have seen him as Jesse Custer. I'm not sure I could see him as a superhero.

    He could be an interesting white collar villain. Maxwell Lord or something.

    He in my opinion would work better at DC characters. Hal Jordan, Green Arrow, Jack Knight, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold or Grifter could be great choices for him.

  2. I could see him as the Sub-Mariner
