Tom Hanks

The two-time Oscar winner has already expressed an interest in adding to his remarkable and increasingly diverse resume a superhero movie.

But the comic book studio head honchos have so far refrained from giving him the chance to do so.

Considering his status as one of the most bankable and talented stars in Hollywood.

Mr. Nice Guy isn’t particularly interested in being the man who saves the day, or the guy on the sidelines barking out orders.

Instead, in an interview with Showbiz 411, Hanks pleaded: “Let me play the bad guy against Batman. I’ll do anything, call me.

He added, “They’ve never asked. God, I want to throw a shield at somebody. And I don’t want to play the guy in the suit who tells the superheroes what’s going on. I want to get in there.”

Kristen Stewart

Vampire diaries fame Kristen is also in the league, she confirmed herself with Yahoo Movies that she wouldn’t be averse to joining the Marvel Universe, and one of its franchises in particular.

Talking about the same she said, “I love watching those movies. I would love to show people that I can do more than just be Kristen Stewart in a different movie, in a different circumstance.”

She added, “I’m sure I could get on board with Captain America, you know what I mean? It would just have to be the right thing.”

Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt also proved that she can play the action hero when she teamed up with Kidman’s ex-husband Tom Cruise in the highly underrated Edge of Tomorrow.

 Also, the British actress has discussed her desire to repeat the feat in a superhero movie several times.

Speaking of the same she told New York Magazine, she would like to star in one that would “scare the bejesus out of her.”

Also mentioning to Vulture that she was extremely flattered to be linked with the role of Captain Marvel in the 2018 first female-led Marvel movie.

But when she got the offer to play the Black Widow in “Iron Man 2” she passed on because of timing conflicted with something else.

Daniel Redcliffe 

After playing Harry Potter in movies based on J.K. Rowling’s bestsellers, actor Daniel Radcliffe is keen to play his favorite comic book character from The Flash.

The actor says he would love to don the red and yellow lycra suit sported by the superhero in The Flash. He feels a movie like that could rival The Avengers.

Meanwhile for the Marvel Cinematic Universe fans here’s an update about the upcoming movie The Batman. Matt Reeves unveiled the film’s first look at the DC Fandome.
