Matthew McConaughey will not be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Why? Read On!
To be precise the A-List actor refused to go along with the trend of prancing around with a CGI screen as a backdrop as he passed-up the opportunity of playing a villain in the sequel for “Guardians of the Galaxy” as mentioned in What Culture.
The 45-year-old actor said no to Director James Gunn’s appointment of him playing boozed-up snake-hipped villain sashaying on the big screen taking into consideration that McConaughey had a “reading” for a Marvel role which was supposedly for Norman Osbourne. McConaughey, though, is no stranger to playing characters on screen which are a nasty piece of work, reported AV Club.
In his early days, McConaughey was Vilmer Slaughter, a red-neck with a mechanical leg opposite a young Renee Zellweger in a loose remake for the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” He was El Rojo, a drug kingpin in 1996’s “Scorpion King” and he played a crazed hit-man in 2011 in “Killer Joe” which was infamously noted for the “KFC chicken leg scene.”
It has also been mentioned that perhaps the 2011 Academy Award winner for “Dallas Buyers Club” doesn’t just want to do anything with a movie that now tackles the male paternal instinct.
Despite this unpleasant development between Matthew McConaughey and the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise, Cinemablend made a list of potential characters (anti-heroes and villains) from the “Marvel Universe” that the thespian could have well been suited to portray: Thane, an offspring of Thanos who became more malevolent than the Mad Titan himself; Korvac, a power cosmic wielder who is like Peter Quill is also human; Terrax also known as Tyros the Terrible, a ruler from the planet Birj; J’Son of Spartax, Peter Quill’s father from the Spartoi Empire; and lastly Adam Warlock the Magus, a powerful synthetic creation who rebelled against his masters.
