Although there is not much Seth Rollins can say about his much-awaited role in Captain America: Brave New World, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion does have a message for the audience. In a recent interview for Last Meals with Mythical Chef Josh Scherer, the wrestler-turned-actor didn’t shy away from sharing his experience and other impactful details about the fourth installment of the Captain America film series.
Rollins found the transition from WWE to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be a “cool” experience, though he refrained from giving away any major plot details. Nevertheless, he acknowledged that the role forced him to step outside of his comfort zone. As a result, even though the pro wrestling sensation is confident that his MCU debut will satisfy fans, he cannot help but also feel “nervous” about disappointing them. The upcoming film also stars Anthony Mackie, Danny Ramirez, and Carl Lumbly in significant roles.
Seth Rollins Teases Impactful Role in Captain America: Brave New World, Leaves Fans Curious
The global excitement surrounding Marvel’s next big release, Captain America: Brave New World, is immense. Seth Rollins has an unspecified role in Julius Onah’s movie, which increases the film’s potential to be an amazing experience in addition to its intriguing plot. The professional wrestler is silent about the specifics of his role and the movie’s plot, but he assures fans that they will witness a completely satisfied performance.
When Rollin was asked about his Captain America: Brave New World’s undisclosed role in a recent interview for Last Meals with Mythical Chef Josh Scherer, he grinned and said:
“Nope, can’t do that! Can’t tell you nothing about that. It was a really good experience and I think it’s going to be pretty cool. I think our audience is going to love it. I think their audience is going to love it, so it was a cool crossover to be able to jump into some totally different skin and try a new thing out for me.”
Rollins also has hope that his move into acting will not make everyone “hate” him. When the topic shifted to the pressure of portraying an alleged comic book villain on screen, he continued, saying:
“Hopefully everyone doesn’t hate me. I don’t want to have ruined everybody’s vision of this character, so I’m doing my best. I hope people enjoy it.”
WWE Superstar Moved Out of His Comfort Zone?
Although Seth Rollins has a few acting credits under his belt, Captain America: Brave New World is unquestionably his most significant project to date. It goes without saying that working on the blockbuster was very different from what he does every week when he enters the ring for Raw.
The World Heavyweight Champion, who will turn 38 in the coming year, further revealed during his interview on Last Meals with Mythical Chef Josh Scherer:
“I’m not comfortable…like, look, I’m 38. I’ve only been doing wrestling for 20 years. Only, nonstop. That’s it. I worked in like crappy restaurants and a carwash when I was in my early 20s, and that’s it.”
Because Rollins is renowned for his work ethic outside of the ring, he has thoroughly prepared for his role in the upcoming Marvel film. Considering that all he had ever done was wrestle, he weighed the fact that he gets “nervous” easily when he is pushed outside of his comfort zone:
“Other than that all I’ve done is wrestling, so anytime I get out of my comfort zone I am nervous. I’m like I suck at this, I don’t know what I’m doing, but I was in good hands and it was a really fun experience and I’m excited to see how it turns out.”
Anthony Mackie, Harrison Ford, Danny Ramirez, Carl Lumbly, Tim Blake Nelson, Shira Haas, and Liv Tyler are among the other actors who will appear in Captain America: Brave New World. Dalan Musson and Malcolm Spellman wrote the screenplay for the film, which is directed by Julius Onah.
Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Captain America: Brave New World is arriving on July 26, 2024.
