Jessica Chastain Hopeful Of Role In A Marvel Movie Despite IRON MAN 3 Departure

Jessica Chastain Hopeful Of Role In A Marvel Movie Despite IRON MAN 3 Departure

Despite passing on her role in Iron Man 3, due to scheduling, The Help actress Jessica Chastain would still like a role in a future Marvel Studios production. Check it out after the jump!

Initially offered the role of a scientist in Marvel Studios' next outing, Iron Man 3, Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain previously announced that she'd have to pass, due to scheduling conflicts. However, speaking recently with Total Film, The Help actress confessed she'd still like a role in one of the studios' forthcoming production.

"It's always a good problem to have because it means you have options. It's not really a problem, but it was just impossible, schedule-wise. So I was sad. I met Shane Black earlier and I think he's going to make an amazing film. And of course I went to see Avengers Assemble earlier and I loved it. I hope to be in a Marvel film."

With a slew of films in production, with specific roles undisclosed, what supporting, even leading, role do you think Jessica Chastain could tackle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Enchantress?

Described as a “technological crisis thriller,” set in the world of international war, arms & terror, Marvel Studios' “Iron Man 3” stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Andy Lau, Ashley Hamilton, James Badge Dale, with Sir Ben Kingsley and Jon Favreau. Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”) takes over directorial duties from Jon Favreau, who helmed the first two “Iron Man” films. Principal photography will occur primarily in North Carolina and China. And “Iron Man 3” is set for release in May 3, 2013.

Sharon Carter?

Chastain isn't attractive enough to be Enchantress.

Is there any actor out there in Hollywood (besides that douche Matthew Modine) that doesn't want to be in a Marvel movie after seeing the Avengers money?
ItsATrap - 6/14/2012, 11:57 AM
...Ms. Marvel?
PaulRom - 6/14/2012, 11:58 AM
Not sure about what Marvel character she should play, but I think she'd be great as Iris West in a Flash film.
thewonderer - 6/14/2012, 11:59 AM

LOL Matthew Modine is freaking awesome.

Don't be so butthurt about opinions bro.
Dvantassel23 - 6/14/2012, 11:59 AM
Maybe she can be The Wasp
Minato - 6/14/2012, 12:01 PM
Please not Ms Marvel
I love the character but I dont think there are any hints of her yet. Especially the horny girl in Avengers that wanted to give Cap some.
marvel72 - 6/14/2012, 12:06 PM
wasn't sharon carter at the end of captain america,i thought she was the nurse/shield agent that is with steve when he first wakes up in modern day new york.

amanda righetti played her i think.

Eh, I'd do her. Considering when Marvel casts women, they go for the hot ones, something Nolan can't do or for some sexual orientated reason refuses to, queer, lolol.

Jessica Chastain
Hayley Atwell
Liv Tyler
Gwyneth Paltrow
Scarlett Johansson

Maggie Gylenhaal

*shudders* Make Mine Marvel!!

another hot English chick who can also act. Is there any talent left in America?
113 - 6/14/2012, 12:28 PM
Enchantress or even Ms. Marvel.

In terms of DC, I could see her playing a more realistic version of Harley Quinn (think about her voice in The Help).
JABBAtheAmerican - 6/14/2012, 12:31 PM
@GambbitFreak lol you really found some ugly ass pics of the last three...
TheGambitFreak - 6/14/2012, 12:31 PM
Oops, forgot one.....

GingerBird - 6/14/2012, 12:33 PM
Hey Gambitfreak/dick lips, Nolan casts for acting, not just eye candy, ala Michael Bay.
GingerBird - 6/14/2012, 12:34 PM
And if you think Marion cotillard is ugly than your judgement is out the window anyway.
TheGambitFreak - 6/14/2012, 12:35 PM
@JaBBAtheAmerican Hey it was just the first ones that popped up on Flickr, my friend...

That would be cool, i was disappointed when she didn't go for IM3
JABBAtheAmerican - 6/14/2012, 12:38 PM
O c'mon! Anne isn't that bad haha
TheGambitFreak - 6/14/2012, 12:38 PM
GingerBird/Flaming Dragon/[frick]face Marvel casts looks and talent and comic book likeness's, just FYI.

SpiderFan35 - 6/14/2012, 12:39 PM
Yeah GingerBird, but am I supposed to believe the most eligible bachelor in Gotham is with Maggie what-happened-to-your-face- Gyllenhaal?
aurorsand147 - 6/14/2012, 12:40 PM
TheGambitFreak haha i was laughing until you posted Marion Cotillard and said Eeeeeewwwwwwww....
JABBAtheAmerican - 6/14/2012, 12:40 PM
Hathaway can sometimes resemble a sandworm tho
RunDTC - 6/14/2012, 12:46 PM
it was never actually confirmed if that was Sharon at the end of CA:TFA.
Oarsis - 6/14/2012, 1:00 PM
I LOVE Jessica...Wonderful actress!
I would like to see her take on a superhero role, and do action....It would be cool to see!

How about Abigail Brand?

She doesn't have to be connected to Beast like in the comics...she could be a SHIELD agent, or something?
Plus, I bet she could look good with green hair?
GingerBird - 6/14/2012, 1:02 PM
Gwyneth Paltrow is ugly as hell (how does someone have saggy A cups?)
BarackObama - 6/14/2012, 1:09 PM
DC casts women like Blake Lively who can't act worth shit, so they obviously would never cast Jessica Chastain. Marvel FTW

The Prez

now look what you've done,you've pissed off another nolanite aka gingerbird.

CharlesLord - 6/14/2012, 1:16 PM
Wiat...I thought Haley Atwell was coming back as Sharon Carter after she played Peggy in CATFA. I mean, doesnt Sharon looks exactly like Peggy? Isnt that wat drew Caps attraction to her?

@JABBA Jessica Chastain is AMERICAN, she's from my hometown of Sacramento.

I was bummed too when she had to pass on Iron Man 3. She is fantastic people, check her out in The Help to see what I mean. Hope Marvel keeps her number on speed dial for a future project.

And yes Amanda Righetti played Sharon in Cap:First Avenger...

Y-U-M!!! :D
GingerBird - 6/14/2012, 1:20 PM
Haha I LOVE the "Nolanite" tag you kids put on people that like TDKR or Christopher Nolan's films. Ya of course I like him, he's an AMAZING director and writer (the numbers speak for themselves). If I see some close-minded Nolan hater putting up BS posts about how "Nolan casts ugly women", then I'll respond to it, but better watch out, because the "ginger bird/one hit wonder/joss Whedon" lovers will be all over you.

marvel72 - 6/14/2012, 1:39 PM
@ gingerbird

i'm no whedon lover,i liked the avengers,the cabin in the woods was pretty good & his award winning run on the astonishing x-men was awesome.

but not a fan of buffy,angel,firefly or anything else i may of left off.

the only good nolan films that i can actually watch more than once are memento,inception,batman begins & the dark knight.

but does that make me a nolanite,of course not you know why because i think he makes good films & i don't worship him like his some kind of god.
GingerBird - 6/14/2012, 1:43 PM
So what makes you think I or others "worship" him?
marvel72 - 6/14/2012, 1:47 PM
@ gingerbird

because you nolanites can't see any faults in anything he does & also the classic comment "nolan is god".
marvel72 - 6/14/2012, 1:52 PM
i second intruders comment i worship marvel as well of course they're not perfect but no one is.

don't think i'm a dc hater as well,i do like about half a dozen of their books & i do like their films as well i.e watchmen,v for vendetta,superman the movie & so on.

watch their animated dvd's & play some of their video games.
GingerBird - 6/14/2012, 1:54 PM
So how about them Dodgers?
kevberg - 6/14/2012, 1:57 PM
Oh man, I think I dumped my goo when i saw that Haley Atwell pic.....good lawd!
