Jessica Chastain teases possible Marvel role

Jessica Chastain has revealed that a meeting has taken place with Marvel over an undisclosed role, although the star has confirmed it is not Captain Marvel.

“We’ve talked about aligning our forces in the future,” Chastain told MTV of her relationship with the studio. “And here’s the thing with me… If you’re going to be in a superhero movie, you only get one chance.”

“You’re that character forever. So why do a superhero movie and play the boring civilian?” A possible reference to Maya Hansen there? Chastain had been attached to the Iron Man 3 character before eventually dropping out on account of scheduling difficulties…

“I don’t want to say too much,” continues the star, “but there was one thing, there was a possibility in the future of the character becoming… And I was like, ‘I understand that, but I want to do it now!’”

Just who that character might be is up for interpretation, although Chastain has moved to quash subsequent rumours that she is in line to play Captain Marvel.

“Oops uh oh…” said Chastain on Twitter. “I've never had talks about Captain Marvel. Was referring to a different film from over a year ago, in my recent MTV interview.”

In the meantime, Chastain can be seen starring in Interstellar , which opens in the UK on Friday.
