Matthew McConaughey says he's down for a comic book movie if it turns him on

11.05.2014

Interstellar Christopher Nolan Matthew McConaughey Anne Hathaway Jessica Chastain Banner

Although it's looking like Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing Doctor Strange in the upcoming Scott Derrickson film, at one point Matthew McConaughey was rumored to be up for the role. But is the actor even interested in starring in a comic book movie?

IGN recently asked McConaughey that question, and he says he would do one, but only if it had the right script and character.

It's not an area that I'm saying I wouldn't like to go. I don't know, it would have to be a script and a character that I found interesting and one where I can have a personal experience. I'm not thinking about a genre like, 'Oh, I really want to do this or I wouldn't want to do that'. If something finds me at the right time, turns me on, and if I can grab a hold of it, see it from the inside and get a feeling that, 'Oh, I've got a way I can do this that can be original.'

Who knows if Marvel was actually eyeing Matthew McConaughey for Doctor Strange, but I'm sure Marvel and DC would both love to land the actor for a role in one of their movies. I'm not sure which comic book character McConaughey could play on the big screen, however I wouldn't mind if he ended up playing Jesse Custer in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's Preacher television series. Which comic book character would you like to see Matthew McConaughey play in a movie?

Matthew McConaughey can be seen next in INTERSTELLAR, and if you haven't already, you can check out Chris Bumbray's review of the Christopher Nolan film here.

I don't think Matthew McConaughey is a "fake, soft-spoken douche bag," but this is still pretty funny.

The Sentry

He would be a great robert reynolds in an adaptation of The Sentry by Paul Jenkins. Depending on whether hed want a long commitment, it could be a great one-off superhero film with a bunch of cameos

Nice call, man. I've been having a tough time seeing him as anyone in the MCO or DCCU, but he might be damn near perfect for Sentry.

I know comic book movies are a hot commodity for the time being (that bubble will definitely burst by 2020). But that doesn't mean there's a place for everyone in them. I cannot think of a character in any superhero, or comic book story, that MM would be well suited to play. The best I could think of is Hal Jordan, but DC would be wise to go with John Stewart for their Green Lantern over Hal Jordan (get some more ethnicity into the JLA).

Personally, I do NOT think he could pull off Jesse Custer. I mean, technically speaking he could probably pull off damn near any role, but I just don't see him as Jesse. He lacks something, not sure what it is.

Just don't see it

Matthew McConaughey just doesn't seem fit for a comic book role. It would personally take me out of the film. Same thing with Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp or Will Smith. All you'd see is them, and not the character. "Matthew McConaughey as Matthew McConaughey playing...." That's how I see it.

Yeah, that's how I feel about Affleck as Batman. I think he's a good actor with the right Director (Runner Runner was bad), but he's been headlining movies for over a decade now.

It'd be great to see him in comic book movies but right now I can't think of one.

Damn, I'm actually really impressed with some of the ideas on here for MM. Between Sentry, Randall Flagg and now Harvey Dent in the new DCCU, that's three total more fantasy/comic characters than I could initially see him doing. Nicely done, people.

I could see him as Jonah Hex. Might be too obvious but it could work.

Though I m not sure anyone actually watched that
