Marvel Studios may have found what they?re looking for as Jennifer Lawrence might be thinking about taking another Marvel role. Actress Jennifer Lawrence, known for her character as Katniss Everdeen in the ?Hunger Games? movie series, may have hinted on a possible Captain Marvel role.
Potential Captain Marvel candidates
A number of celebrities have been rumored to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), specifically the coveted Captain Marvel character. Casting rumors include famous singer Beyonce Knowles, actress Emily Blunt, and a very famous MMA fighter by the name of Ronda Rousey, expressing her keen interest in playing the character. And previously, Olivia Wilde was added to the list when she tweeted about starting a Marvel diet.
?I?m a big fan of superhero films, and I have so much respect for the Marvel Cinematic Universe,? Wilde told Cinemablend. ?The thing with female superheroes is that, in order to be powerful, they are flawless. The idea of kick-ass power lacks a certain nuance, at times. There is something to be said for a female director working to create a female superhero that perhaps [has] a little more complexity.
Jennifer Lawrence is Captain Marvel?
On the other hand, in a recent interview with Spinoff Online, Lawrence responded about Katniss place in the world of superheroes, ?I think Katniss is the best female character ever,? she said, according to Screenrant. And when she was asked about the possibility of joining co-stars Chris Pratt and Bradley Cooper in the ?sandbox? Marvel Universe, she said, ?Well, yes! I would love to play in a sandbox with those two!?
Lawrence didn?t explicitly say that she would like to play the role of Captain Marvel, but it would definitely be another step up for Marvel Studios if they were to give the role to an amazing actress such as her.
