Ghostbusters’ Leslie Jones Wants To Join The MCU; But Not As A Hero

Ghostbusters Marvel Leslie Jones

With it’s consistently growing popularity, we are constantly hearing about actors and actresses expressing their interest in roles in Marvel Studios releases. The latest to join the ever-growing list? Well, that would be Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones. While chatting with the cast of the film hitting theaters this week, IGN commented that the new Ghostbusters felt like The Avengers.

Jones was quite excited to hear this and then went on to express her personal interest in joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, unlike many, the comedian and actress revealed to the outlet that she isn’t interested in playing a hero.

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.

When asked about what character she would like to portray, Jones definitely had a bit of an interesting response.

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.

Doesn’t sound like any character Marvel has but I’m sure that Jones would be open to an established character if Marvel did give her a call. Would you be interested in seeing Leslie Jones join the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Do you have any roles in mind that you think she would be a good fit for? Sound off with your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below.

I write stuff. Sometimes.

    I don’t care what character she plays in a comic book movie… I just need her in one. This woman is one of the funniest people on television today.

    Put her on Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.

    • SAMURAI36

      She rightly belongs on AoShit.

  • WAT.

    DC. Granny Goodness. That’s all I’ve got.

    • SAMURAI36

      Granny is not a comical character.


    Marvel can have her. She seems to be more of a fit for them, than for DC.

    • JMMagwood

      Maybe Darkseid, or the Anti Monitor… They already cast Thanos, so that’s out. What else could she play in either group? Dragon Man?

      Okay, okay, I kid… But I’m not a fan. She’s playing a modern day minstrel show.

        She’s playing a modern day minstrel show.

        Precisely this.

      Bad SNL comedy has no place in Hollywood.

      • SAMURAI36

        I’m gonna give you a few minutes to rethink that.

        • Carl

          Don’t need a second more. There has been a lot of bad comedy movies that have come from SNL stars in the last 20 years.

          • SAMURAI36

            Oh, so now you’re moving the goal posts. Why is “20 years” the qualifier? Because I can think of about a half dozen or more films from SNL stars from 30 years ago, that were some of the best of their time.

            Either way, how do you reconcile Ant-Man, since that’s from only a year ago?

          • Carl

            As always your reading comprehension fails you. I started by saying “bad SNL” then clarified it for you with the “last 20 years” because you didn’t get it.

            What’s Ant-Man got to do with this. Paul Rudd is not an SNL star nor was the movie bad.

          • SAMURAI36

            That’s not what you implied at first. Either that, or your writing skills leaves much to be desired. Even if you were trying to say that SNL comedy from the last 2 decades is what was bad, I’d still disagree, & so do most people. Unless you wanna use the argument that ratings are irrelevant?
            But, just to blow all of your goal posts out of the water, I’ve got one name: Will Ferrell.

          • SAMURAI36

            And actually, Paul Rudd was in fact an SNL star.


            In addition to his film career, Rudd has appeared in numerous television shows, most notably as Mike Hannigan on the NBC sitcom Friends, along with guest roles on Tim and Eric and Parks and Recreation (as businessman Bobby Newport), and hosting Saturday Night Live. Rudd received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 1, 2015.

            Rudd was on SNL from 2008-2013. That’s an awful long time to not be on SNL.

            Hosting an episode doesn’t make you an SNL star…
