With the immense success that superhero movies have had in the past few years it is no surprise that more and more actors want in on the action. During an interview with Variety, Mathew McConaughey stated that he has been looking over scripts from both DC and Marvel and circling his characters of interest. Matthew also said he has been in talks with both companies discussing roles that he could possibly play. This is very interesting, Matthew McConaughey is a very talented actor but what role could he fill in a Marvel or DC film?
Matthew McConaughey is a very talented and well respected actor but he needs to be placed in the correct role for him to succeed in a comic universe. One of my choices would be The Sub-Mariner, Sub-Mariner is a very quiet, reserved, and some may even say stoic type of character. That falls right into what Mathew McConaughey is fit for playing. He may not be as big as Sub-Mariner but he could definitely pull of the personality.
Adam Warlock has always been a bit of a fan favorite among comic fans and he was actually mentioned briefly in Guardians of the Galaxy. Matthew McConaughey would be the perfect on-screen Adam Warlock. Physically he has the right shape, a slender yet fit type of body. McConaughey would re define the character if Adam Warlock on the big screen and I would love to see this happen! We really need a Adam Warlock film and who better to star in it than Matthew McConaughey?
There has been many rumors that DC will go with the John Stewart version of Green Lantern, but if they were to do Hal Jordan could Matthew McConaughey fill that role? I think that he could be a great Hal Jordan. I personally have always been a fan of John Stewart but if Matthew McConaughey were to play Hal Jordan it may spark not only my interest, but many other fans of the characters interest. Matthew McConaughey, much like Hal Jordan is a very reserved yet brave kind of guy. Hal Jordan is a tough character to get right but I think McConaughey could do it.
According to reports, Mathew McConaughey read for the role of Mr Freeze. The last time that we saw Mr Freeze was in the 1997 film Batman and Robin, where Arnold Schwarzenegger donned the role with minimal success. It would be interesting to see if Matthew McConaughey could play the character of Mr Freeze as it is a very unique character. McConaughey has a very strong accent that he usually has throughout every film so if he could possibly change his voice to make it fit for Mr Freeze it may work.
