McConaughey open to joining a superhero movie

Matthew McConaughey is open to joining a superhero film, and has even read some of Marvel’s and DC’s scripts. But so far, nothing has struck a chord with him.

Ahead of his Cannes Film Festival appearance, he told Variety that he has been reading scripts. He said, “I’ve read some Marvel and DC scripts and I’ve talked about working with them on some scripts… Yeah, I’ve circled some of those. Nothing has been right for me yet. But I’m sure open to it."

He highlighted that both the script and the pay would entice him to join a superhero film. It’s very simple for me. I look at the script. Is the opportunity exciting? Is the money that comes with it exciting? Sure," he said.

But McConaughey realises how much more there is to a superhero film than just the pay and script. He said that he asks himself the same questions over and over again.

“Contractually, you’re going to return to the character over and over. It’s something I asked myself is it something I’d want to return to. Would I be excited to go back and put the shoes on the character again? Going and doing the press tour with that group of people again?”

McConaughey was previously rumoured for the role of Captain America before Chris Evans landed the part. For now, the right character and script continues to evade him.
