Kristen Stewart gets a bit of a bum rap. She’s undoubtedly one of our best young actresses but, after being cast in the blockbuster franchise Twilight, her career went off on a tangent. She was typecast as the young character Bella and got forced into the national celebrity spotlight, something the actress was certainly not comfortable with.
To attempt to right the ship, the actress has spent most of her post-Twilight time starring in small, critical darlings. Films like Camp X-Ray, Clouds of Sils Maria and current Oscar-nominee Still Alice. She’s not against bigger movies though. A few years back, she starred in Snow White and the Huntsman and later this year, she’ll be an action star in American Ultra.
In a new interview, Stewart opened up even more to the possibilities of larger blockbuster projects. She admitted she’s a fan of superhero movies and feels she could “get on board with Captain America” if need be. Read the Kristen Stewart superhero quote below.
Stewart was talking to Yahoo Movies about Still Alice when the topic of superhero movies came up:
I love watching those movies. I would love to show people that I can do more than just be ‘Kristen Stewart’ in a different movie, in a different circumstance….I’m sure I could get on board with Captain America, you know what I mean?… It would just have to be the right thing.
Now 90% of that statement is probably just her spitballing a nice idea in theory. “Oh yeah, sure, that would be cool if everything worked out perfectly.” But, she also happens to say it at a unique time in superhero movies with a bunch of potential roles becoming available for females. There’s Captain Marvel, of course, but also members of the Inhumans or new Guardians of the Galaxy. DC already has Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn, but you can bet their massive slate of movies could also fit in the actress.
If anything, Stewart’s sentiment at least opens up the idea of casting her to producers at all the studios. She’s got a huge fan base and would generate some big excitement. If the part is right, why not? What do you think of a Kristen Stewart superhero role?Cool Posts From Around the Web:
