Could We See Jude Law Appear In A Comic Book Movie?
Sherlock Holmes and Side Effects star Jude Law reveals whether or not he'd be interested in taking on a CBM in the near future, and also discusses his being a "massive" comic book fan.
Speaking with Collider while promoting his new movie Side Effects, actor Jude Law is asked about the possibility of appearing in a comic book film in the near future, seeing that the genre is rising in popularity. As a "massive" comic book fan, he would certainly be open to if/when the opportunity arises. "I’m a massive comic book fan. I was buying weekly installments of “The Watchmen”, and “From Hell”, and “Parallax” and “Johnny Nemo”. I was a huge comic book fan as a kid and I still am, I still am to a degree. Me and my youngest son are both comic book nerds together; make models and stuff. My oldest son thinks I’m a terrible geek. But I don’t care, my youngest son gets me, he always does. Yeah, it’s definitely something I would like to get involved in if, again if the director’s right and the piece is right and the part is right. I was sad not to be a part of Watchmen when they made the movie, but I was busy doing something else." He is then asked specifically if he would be up for a role in Warner Bros.' Justice League movie or one of Marvel Studios' Phase Two films. "That’s a good idea. I mean, I’m quite interested at the moment, nothing's lined up, but I’m quite interested at the moment to do something a little more action-y, I’ve done quite a few quite cerebral, period movies and I’d quite like to do something like that." Law previously starred in Sam Mendes' graphic novel adaptation Road To Perdition, and has franchise experience after his role as John Watson in WB's Sherlock Holmes series.
