Caitlyn Jenner wants movie villain role
The 68-year-old television personality has revealed she would love to try her hand at acting, preferably with a role as an evil character within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
LONDON - Caitlyn Jenner wants to play a Marvel movie villain because she thinks she can pull off the "bada##" evil character look.
The 68-year-old television personality has revealed she would love to try her hand at acting, preferably with a role as a "bada##" evil character within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), as she thinks she has what it takes to tackle a sinister role.
She said: "In a Marvel movie, I want to play the baddest-a## lady you've ever seen in your life. They got the wicked queen or the wicked lady. Just do the makeup and the outfit. And I got the deep voice."
Jenner - who was known formerly known as Bruce Jenner - has been offered acting roles in the past, as before her transition she co-starred on TV's CHiPs.
And the star even auditioned for _Superman _shortly after winning the gold medal at the 1976 Olympic decathlon but lost out on the part to Christopher Reeve.
She added: "I got all these issues inside me. [I asked myself], 'Did I build up this character so big that I'm stuck with Bruce for the rest of my life?' And it scared the hell out of me. And then four months later, they call [me] up: 'Would you be interested in a screen test for Superman?'"
Despite missing out on the chance to play the DC superhero, Jenner believes she was better off not bagging the role, as she doesn't think she would have suited the "macho guy" image that Superman and his alter-ego Clarke Kent give off.
Speaking to _Variety _magazine, she said: "It was just too much for me. I would have gone down as the most macho guy in the world, and that's not me. It's not even close to being me. That's why I want to play that bada## b##h. I can play that girl."
