Unsurprisingly, many actors as of late have jumped on the opportunity to expressed interest in what Marvel character they would like to play if they were able to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Most recently, Anna Kendrick picked Squirrel Girl as her potential role in the MCU, much to the delight of fans. Of course, as we all know, there’s no confirmation that we’ll ever get to see Squirrel Girl brought to life on the big screen (unfortunately), but it’s still hard not to imagine Kendrick bringing the character to life. However, as great as Kendrick expressing interest in Squirrel Girl is, it’s nowhere near as fun as this week’s latest actress voicing interest in joining the MCU. While conducting interviews with the cast, IGN pointed out that the new Ghostbusters movie felt like The Avengers, to which star Leslie Jones was delighted to hear before immediately going on to express interest in joining the highly successful franchise. Unlike Kendrick, though, Jones didn’t have a particular character in mind, only noting that she wanted to play a villain.
I wanna be a villain, though. I don’t want to be a sup-I want to be a villain. If I go to Marvel, I want to be a villain.
Marvel will have their first (confirmed) female villain, with Cate Blanchett appearing as Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. There are also rumors that a female villain will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Now that the MCU seems open to having evil women in the universe, what character would Jones like to portray?
We would have to make one up, where my hair just grows every time I get angry… and my voice has these things that come out and kill… comes out of the hair and the mouth.
Jones’ villain description sounds a lot like God in Kevin Smith’s movie, Dogma. Smith recently mentioned that he would like a shot at directing in the MCU. Perhaps he can help Marvel adapt his version of a character who’s voice has the power to kill all who listen for the actress. If you can think of any existing Marvel characters that match her idea, let us know in the comments below!
