Captain Marvel rumours been misinterpreted according to Jessica Chastain

November 4th, 2014 by Derek Robertson Comments

Chastain takes to Twitter to denounce any involvement in Captain Marvel movie.

When Jessica Chastain was talking to MTV news, she confirmed that she had turned down a role in Iron Man 3 – which eventually went to Rebecca Hall – and gave her reasoning behind the decision:

“If you’re going to be in a superhero movie, you only get one chance. You’re that character forever. So why do a superhero movie and play the boring civilian? Whatever it is, I want a fight scene. I could be an incredible villain. I could be a hero. I want a cool outfit, and I want to kick ass.”

If seems that Chastain is still clinging to the possibility of being offered a better role in the superhero genre. Furthermore, Chastain also spoke about the possibility of playing a character that evolves into something more like a superheroine, in the near future, stating:

“There was this… I don’t want to say too much – but there was one thing, there was a possibility in the future of the character becoming… And I was like, ‘I understand that, but I want to do it now.'”

This is what led to internet speculation that the role she was referring to was that of Captain Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel as she also seemed to know about the movie and its release date.

However, a couple of hours later Chastain announced on  Twitter  that the role she was referring to was offered a while back:

“Oops uh oh….I’ve never had talks about Captain Marvel. Was referring to a different film from over a year ago, in my recent MTV interview.”

Hmmm, who knows? Could be a case of putting the cart before the horse.
