Acting like a superhero with superpowers isn’t something that every actor likes. Yes, this genre is interesting and many of us are inclined towards it. We have even seen some of our favorite actors taking up superhero roles. But some A-list actors haven’t got the opportunity to work in a superhero movie. Or they might have turned it down. Action is not everybody’s cup of tea. Some actors prefer not to be a part of such movies for their reasons. For years, DCEU and MCU have gained immense popularity. They’ve bagged in some great actors to be the heroes from comics alive. However, some still haven’t worked in superhero movies. Who are they? Check it out!
1. Amanda Seyfried
The Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried began her acting career at a young age and modeling career at an even younger age. She is an experienced actor, so, shockingly, she hasn’t appeared in an MCU or DCEU movie yet. Well, the truth is, she was offered the role of Gamora in GOTG. However, she refused to do it saying she had a life to live. But having her in one of the superhero movies would be great!
2. Jennifer Aniston
FRIENDS star Jennifer Aniston has been a part of many big and small projects. She has acted in many genres. But one genre that is still untouched by her is superhero movies. She says she isn’t interested in living on a green screen. Action films do require filming on green screens and it does take a toll on you! Looks like we’ll never see her feature in a superhero movie.
3. Jon Hamm
Mad Men’s Don Draper, Jon Hamm was heavily considered to play Batman and was even offered the role of Green Lantern. But he didn’t get on board for any of them. He said he simply doesn’t believe in working on scripts that have no surety of working out in the future and that it was too much of a risk.
4. Josh Hartnett
Wrath of Man’s Dave Hancock, Josh Hartnett is a tall, handsome and talented actor. He was offered several superhero roles such as Batman, Superman, and even Sider-Man. But he didn’t opt any stating he didn’t want to be defined as a hero for the rest of his life. He wanted to explore more of himself and is now choosing roles that personally excite him.
5. Kate Beckinsale
Underworld star Kate Beckinsale has worked in action movies yet we didn’t get to see her MCU or DCEU movies as a superhero. Why? She was offered the role of Super Woman. However, she refused it saying she didn’t like the script and costume. Moreover, she added, she did want to embarrass her kids with the costumes these heroes have to wear! Lol. Now, that’s some concern.
6. Rose McGowen
Scream star Rose McGowen has starred in many films, but superhero movies aren’t one of them. Her response is very straightforward. She says she wants to be a part of the work that’s intelligent, daring and drives society forward. She simply opposes the idea of superhero films and wishes to continue with slasher or thriller films.
7. Jason Statham
Wrath of Man star Jason Statham is a pro in working in action/thriller movies. Seeing him as a villain or antihero in MCU or DCEU would be such a treat to the eyes. However, this looks like a distant dream. He once took a gig at MCU refusing a role saying anybody can do Marvel movies, including his grandmom. Well, doesn’t look like he’ll commit to any superhero films in the future of such sorts.
