<font color=red>EXCLUSIVE:</font> Hey, Marvel/DC: MR. ROBOT Star Christian Slater Is Ready For A Comic Book Movie Role

Christian Slater has made a sensational comeback with Mr. Robot and the actor has revealed that he's ready to take on a role in a live-action superhero movie if Marvel Studios/DC is willing to have him...

Christian Slater is no stranger to the world of superheroes after playing a comic book store employee in True Romance and voicing Deadshot in Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay but when are we going to see the Golden Globe winning actor in a live-action superhero movie? It's easy to imagine him fitting into both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Films Universe...it just depends on who nabs him first!

After all, the actor has really turned his career around with his superb and award-winning performance in Mr. Robot and it's honestly surprising that Marvel Studios, in particular, hasn't approached him to play a villain (his layered and compelling work in the USA Network drama proves he'd be perfect for any number of characters). Recently, I was given the opportunity to talk to Slater and had to ask him if a live-action role in a superhero movie is something he would be interested in tackling one day.

"Look, if they keep making them, absolutely!" he enthusiastically replied. "At some point, that would be great. You know, I'm taking care of myself and I am certainly ready to be involved in something like that. Whether it's an animated feature or something live-action, I would be more than happy to participate in something like that." I guess, for now, we'll just have to wait and see what comes next for him but here's hoping someone takes notes of these comments and thinks about signing him up.

Do you have any ideas about who Slater could play on the big screen? As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts on that and the actor's remarks here in the usual place and stay tuned for updates.


Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay arrives on Blu-ray and DVD April 16th. Have you guys checked it out yet?
