It has recently been revealed by Fifty Shades of Grey actor Jamie Dornan that he wishes to play a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if we believe the reports, he has already had a meeting with Marvel Boss Kevin Feige about a role in the MCU.
Jamie Dornan opened up about his future goals while also discussing the massive transition of his friend Robert Pattinson from his days on Twilight to becoming the next Caped Crusader. In a conversation with New York Times, he revealed, “I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I feel like him and his people have played it really cleverly.”
Fifty Shades Star Jamie Dornan Wants A Role In The MCU
“Everything he’s done since Twilight has been really smart and beautifully crafted,” Dornan continued. “And those films aren’t financed on his name had he not been in these movies that made billions of dollars.”
While at the same conversation, Dornan also suggested that landing with a Marvel role will help in widening his fanbase. “What have I done, three war movies? You’d think that might help my cause out a little bit with straight men, but probably not,” the actor said. “I think you need to be in that comic-book world to really grab their attention.”
He also went on to admit that currently, his main focus is his family and providing for them. He stated, “I’m more ambitious than I’ve ever let on before.” He said, “It’s like a necessity to deliver and provide, very caveman-esque: I must succeed for these precious little people. Also, since my dad died, it’s lit this extra fire within me, this extra burner of wanting to succeed.”
Robert Pattinson Is All Set For ‘The Batman”
While Jamie Dornan is still far from getting a role in the MCU, Robert Pattinson is all set to make his debut as The Batman in the upcoming film of the name, directed by Matt Reeves. Pattison has earlier talked about how it felt wearing the cowl, saying, “It’s a strange feeling, I had moments when I was shooting, when you just caught a glimpse of yourself in a reflection and you be like, ‘Am I actually doing this, this is crazy.'”
Here’s the official description of The Batman:
The Batman is an edgy, action-packed thriller that depicts Batman in his early years, struggling to balance rage with righteousness as he investigates a disturbing mystery that has terrorized Gotham. Robert Pattinson delivers a raw, intense portrayal of Batman as a disillusioned, desperate vigilante awakened by the realization that the anger consuming him makes him no better than the ruthless serial killer he’s hunting.
