Actually the real title from Variety reads:
Cate Blanchett in Thor: Ragnarok: Actress in Talks for Marvel Sequel
As of late, I have decided that if I am going to roll my eyes at the Multi-Million Dollar Marvel Universe Hollywood Monopoly......
Take a moment to process the above
(Essentially, I mean that by which Hollywood is run.)
If I am going to roll my eyes at it, I should at least be informed. So I am committed to catching up on all these movies and finding out exactly what all the fuss is about.
After further pondering this decision, I began to fantasize about the comical idea and desire to indeed play, not "role play", but actually book a part as a lead Marvel actress in their exclusive and yet ever popular genre. I mean using deductive reasoning if actors such as Cate Blanchett, Anthony Hopkins, and Idris Elba (to name a few) are accepting these roles, I must be missing something right?
When imagining the ideal candidate, you think petite, fit, sex pot...AKA Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft..(Wrong Universe...well this is off to a good start) Not sure if that's exactly the character I want to play...Definitely know I am far from that prototype. They are all the same. Regardless, I wouldn't mind playing the villain in one of these.
"Justin! Who is a female Marvel Villain?" I spontaneously ask my friend as I'm running my mega long cross country route. I get a fairly expedient reply "The enchantress" "but you'd be great as Poison Ivy in the Dc Comics" he responds. I'm flattered, but it doesnt exactly go along with my thesis for this project. (Who am I kidding though, at this point I'll take anything)
I hope this isn't boring for you, but I have decided to take you along with me. God willing I make it through this project, I will either book a lead role in the Marvel Universe and become super grateful to them...Or simply grateful to not be involved in any capacity with the institution. Either way, I thought you may enjoy seeing this process.
That being said.....Off to watch Iron Man One and Two. DONT SPOIL IT FOR ME! ;)
