Another young rising star in Hollywood has confirmed to have met to potentially join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While on press tour for her upcoming role in Amazon Prime’s The Peripheral, Chloë Grace Moretz has confirmed that she’s had talks with Marvel Studios to discuss a potential role in a project. Not just that, the young actress brought up a desire to play a role more on the darker side of morality.
Yeah, we’ve talked a little bit about it. I mean, I think for me, I would be really interested in playing a villain in Marvel or DC, and jumping into more of the darker side of the role. I love a superhero. I think that’d be really fun, too, but I think it’s just all about finding the one that really matches what you’re wanting to get across, and the scope of the character. I think it’d be really fun if it was the right role and the right project.Chloë Grace Moretz
While it hasn’t been confirmed which role she may have met for, there are two options based on relatively recent Marvel Studios newcomers. Firstly, it isn’t out of the realm of possibility that Moretz met to potentially play Yelena Belova in Black Widow before they signed on Florence Pugh. She’s in the same age range as Pugh and it’s the type of role that could light the interest in playing a more morally grey figure. And potentially more likely, Moretz could have met to discuss playing the aged-up version of Cassie Lang in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. It’s certainly a role that fits her general archetypes and she’d have met the drawing power Marvel was seemingly looking for when they ended up casting Kathryn Newton.
Ultimately, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see Mortez have an interest in a superhero project. They are massively financially beneficial for actors and are the types of roles that have ascended performers into true “A-List” status in Hollywood. Though with her having already met with the studio, Chloë Grace Moretz should be put on the radar of having a possible future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
