With the theaters proving that superhero movies are not only high quality, but great money makers, it’s not a surprise that many A-List actors are jumping on board. Men like Robert Redford, David Spader, Ben Affleck, and more have thrown their hats into the arena with more on the way no doubt. One of those could be Matthew McConaughey, who has noted he has been contacted by both Marvel and DC about possibly being in their films.
“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 told Variety. “Yeah, I’ve circled some of those. Nothing has been right for me yet. But I’m sure open to it.”
“Nothing has been right for me yet” makes this a very interesting story, as it shows that maybe he had been contacted for roles that have not only been filmed, but possibly been very successful, or will be successful. So, what will it take for McConaughey to suit up? Well…
“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 said.
McConaughey is clearly taking the slow and steady approach, something that should be commended. Who do you think he could portray? There are plenty of heroes and villains on both sides he could do, who do you think he’ll be a good match for?
