Reese Witherspoon Has No Interest In Doing A Superhero Movie!

The bad news for any of CBM's great fan casters who've had Reese Witherspoon in mind for a role in a superhero movie is that the actress has ZERO interest in doing one...

A lot of the news I usually post here on CBM is actors and actresses expressing their interest in some sort of superhero role. I'm sure you all remember the numerous unknowns who put their names forward for Captain America and Spider-Man, while bigger named stars are associated with roles like that on an almost daily basis.



That's what makes the following bit of news a little strange. Reese Witherspoon (who I've often seen cast as one character or another over in "Fan Fic") told Entertainment Weekly that she is not interested in appearing in any future superhero movies, as there are no roles which suit her age!

"The movies that are being made feel different. There are a lot of really, really, really big movies about robots and things - and there's not a part for a 34-year-old woman in a robot movie. I've never done the superhero movie. That doesn't interest me too much."


What do you guys thinks? Is there a certain age that an actor/actress reaches that makes then unsuitable to play a superhero or star in an action movie? Robert Downey Jr is surely a perfect example of this rule not applying, but what about for a woman? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

Vital - 12/11/2010, 12:14 PM
What is she talking about lol? Robots? Huh? I can't think of any superhero films that are robots. What she said made ZERO sense lol.
Denn1s - 12/11/2010, 12:14 PM
@ vital she probably means transformers...
Ibz - 12/11/2010, 12:15 PM

jazzman - 12/11/2010, 12:16 PM
@Vital

transformers
Rango - 12/11/2010, 12:19 PM
maybe she meant Iron Man!!!!
LucasMend - 12/11/2010, 12:20 PM
lol I never liked her job anyway, shes sucks.
spiderneil - 12/11/2010, 12:22 PM
thank goodness for that.

besides she is just being stupid, she may get a part in a comic movie and not even know it's a comic book movie.

movies you may not know are comic books
red
road to perdition
men in black
history of violence

future movies that people would have no idea is a comic
y the last man
etc
marvelguy - 12/11/2010, 12:23 PM
I can't imagine which role she would play. She's limited, has too much chin, and a mild lisp. This is good news.
selinakyle - 12/11/2010, 12:23 PM
wom womp. doubt anybody wanted her for any roles anyways.
Hawksblueyes - 12/11/2010, 12:24 PM
She has no interest in that type of film, until some studio offers her the right amount of money to be in one. Like almost every other actor or actress, her interests are directly related to her checking account.
TANKGIRL - 12/11/2010, 12:26 PM
i hate her keeps this legaly blonde away from cbm i never wanted her for any comic book character
Scion - 12/11/2010, 12:26 PM
Good, screw you, we didn't want you anyway!
Last time I saw you was at the funeral of your career.

This coming from someone who show would be better off flying and dropping bombs rather than making them. She got quite the shitstorm coming down the pipeline.

Pharm Girl, Brave, This Means War & Water for Elephants

If we can get a few more horrible actors put it in writing then we'll have an early xmas present for all.
supert - 12/11/2010, 12:39 PM
Damn, you people act like she just said the superhero movies were terrible films. All she said was that they don't interest her, jeez take a chill pill. lol

She's still a good actress I say. There's a reason she's an Oscar winner and multiple Golden Globe/Oscar nominee.
JoshWilding - 12/11/2010, 12:40 PM
Although I know that she's been suggested for a handful of roles in the past (can't for the life of me recall exeactly who they were though) I have to agree with the majority that her not wanting to do a superhero movie is no great loss! As HAWKS points out though, offer her enough cash and she'd soon be talking about how much of a comic book movie fan she is! :P
vinny2814 - 12/11/2010, 12:40 PM
who the [frick] cares, she would be horrible in any cbm.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 12/11/2010, 12:40 PM
I've never liked her, but she'd make a great Skrull Queen with that crazy alien chin she has.
TonyStarch - 12/11/2010, 12:41 PM
That's a shame, because she has the perfect chin to play Brian Bolland's Joker from Killing Joke.
vinny2814 - 12/11/2010, 12:41 PM
who the [frick] cares, she would be horrible in any cbm.
THEHAWK - 12/11/2010, 12:51 PM
Great actress, but I have tried and still cannot find any role in a CBM that she could fit. She just doesn't come to mind any of them
TANKGIRL - 12/11/2010, 12:57 PM
i think abbie cornish (the reason of reese and ryan break up ) is more hotter and better actress

Sucker Punch

Moreci333 - 12/11/2010, 1:11 PM
screw her, her big head, and her weird pointy chin. She sucks anyways
deraj36 - 12/11/2010, 1:25 PM
wow there's a ridiculous amount of Reese Witherspoon hate here.

Someone:Did you hear about that actress who killed her self? Reese...something..Reese--

Someone else: Witherspoon?

Someone: No with a knife.
valeriesghost - 12/11/2010, 1:27 PM
Reese can suck an egg.
jjmeylar - 12/11/2010, 1:48 PM
I think that she'd consider it if approached. There is a lot of money in these films.
marvel72 - 12/11/2010, 2:00 PM
if they offered her some dollar to star in one she would jump at the chance.

she doesn't really get offered that many roles.
patriautism - 12/11/2010, 2:58 PM
who cares
rsalas - 12/11/2010, 4:35 PM
Yeah just stick to shitty romantic comedies. She's way overrated anyways and not good looking at all.
icebergslick - 12/11/2010, 4:38 PM
GOOD!
skullboy - 12/11/2010, 4:38 PM
She woulda made a better Invisible Woman than Jessica Alba.
loganaspatch - 12/11/2010, 6:28 PM
I've never liked her, but she'd make a great Skrull Queen with that crazy alien chin she has.

u rock hawhaw lol

I've seen her topless. Counter that, Reese.
