We’ve got another actress who would definitely be interested if Marvel came calling for the role of Carol Danvers. When a fan asked Olivia Wilde and the director of her latest film Meadowland, Reed Morano, if they’d be interested in the upcoming project via Twitter, the director replied with a very enthusiastic “Um…hell yes!” and was followed in turn by Wilde who responded with a “Oh hell yea. Let’s DO this! I’m starting my @Marvel diet immediately. Eggshells and jet fuel only, right? Who says indie kids can’t go pro?!” While speaking with Cinema Blend, the actress commented further on the idea and her thoughts on Marvel’s big-screen female superheroes.
Wilde expanded on the statement with some thoughts on changes that she feels need to be made when it comes to these female characters on the big-screen. While she praised the studio for their work, she does seem to feel that their female characters need a little more complexity added to them.
While Wilde wouldn’t be my first pick for the role, she definitely wouldn’t be my last. Could she pull this off? Definitely. But is she what Marvel is looking for? Would you be interested in this one? Let us know what you think about Wilde as Captain Marvel and her comments in the box below.
