Marvel will certainly not have a shortage of interested candidates for its upcoming movie roles. The studio can now add young actress Shailene Woodley to its ever-growing list.
The Divergent star revealed in an interview with MTV UK that she would love to appear in an upcoming Marvel film.
“I would love to be in a superhero movie if it was Marvel. Their movies are so much fun to watch. They take you on a ride. I love how they’re all interconnected.”
“I respond to independent films when I watch movies, because I love to feel affected on a very human, stripped level, but there’s something about going to those big blockbuster films where you watch people fly across the sky and have long stretchy arms and supernatural powers… it’s a form of escapism. It’s like reading a very fictional book. I enjoy it.”
This wouldn’t be Woodley’s first foray into the Marvel world. She was slated to play Mary Jane Watson in the Amazing Spider Man 2, however her role was ultimately cut from the final film.
Marvel has a long list of films through 2019, so a role for Woodley wouldn’t be hard to find. Shailene Woodley can next be seen in the up-coming Divergent sequel, Insurgent.
