20 Movie Stars Who Campaigned for Comic Book Movie Roles

No Comments

While back in the '90's appearing in a superhero movie wasn't exactely the dream of every actor (unless that movie had Batman in the title), it seems that everybody wants nowadays to appear in a comic book flick. Whether it is Marvel or DC or any other imprint, tons of actors audition and campaign in order to land their dream role.

And it is no surprise – the market is flooded with superhero movies, with this genre breaking record after record at the US or worldwide box office. So who wouldn't want a piece of this pie? Of course, this isn't the only reason why actors and actresses want to become superheroes or supervillains – some of them are actually fans of these properties.

This being said, here are 20 actors and actresses that have campaigned for such a role – of course, don't expect to see in here those who actually managed to sign a deal for a dream role with a major studio.

For what is worth, the Fast and Furious franchise has already given the world two superheroes: Vin Diesel has been Groot for 2 Guardians of the Galaxy installments, while Gal Gadot has become Wonder Woman. We can also mention in here The Rock, who will portray Black Adam, but he was a later addition to the Fast and Furious movies.

In any way, Tyrese Gibson is yet another actor who wants to become a superhero – namely, John Stewart of the Green Lanterns. With the Green Lantern Corps arriving in 2020 (hopefully), the actor knows that this role is for the taking – and he wants it.

And while he isn't exactely one of the best actors out there, he is still one of the actors that has helped the Fast and Furious franchise become one of the highest grossing franchises of all times. Does Tyrese have what it takes? We doubt it – but that doesn't mean that he won't get it.
