WESTWORLD Star Vincent Cassel Isn't Keen On Starring In A Superhero Movie; Feels They're "For Kids"

WESTWORLD Star Vincent Cassel Isn't Keen On Starring In A Superhero Movie; Feels They're "For Kids"

Vincent Cassel recently made a memorable impact in HBO's Westworld, but when he was asked about joining a Marvel or DC Comics movie, he explained why starring in a film for "kids" doesn't appeal to him...

Vince Cassel is no stranger to franchises after starring in the Oceans movies and Jason Bourne, but he recently dipped his toes into the sci-fi realm with HBO's Westworld. Asked by Inverse whether he's interested in potentially boarding a superhero project, the actor was quick to point out that the genre isn't one he really identifies with as an actor. 

"Honestly, these are not movies I watch anymore," he explained. "When they came up with the technology and the fact that suddenly Iron Man or Spider-Man could look real and not tacky in the special effects, I was interested. Then, it became normal. I was a big fan of the comics at the time when I was a kid. Nowadays, I think these are movies for kids, really."

"And even though I still have a part of me who's a kid, I would say no. I wouldn't watch it."

However, Cassel didn't completely close the door on potentially boarding a Marvel or DC Comics project, and explained that he would only star in one that "doesn't look like a movie for kids."

"Maybe if you had a great villain and it's done with by somebody who's really intelligent and talented enough to give it a twist, so it doesn't look like a movie for kids, then maybe I would do it," Cassel said. "But otherwise, no. The few approaches that I had, I felt like it would have been a long time commitment for something that I wouldn't even watch to the end."
