Kristen Stewart: I’d Love To Do Superhero Movie — If It’s The RIGHT One
Kristen Stewart would not say no to a superhero blockbuster. The Still Alice actress has mostly stuck to smaller movies since her Twilight days, but tells Yahoo! Movies she admires the type of extravaganzas Marvel and DC Comics are producing. “I love watching those movies,” she says. “I would love to show people that I can do more than just be ‘Kristen Stewart’ in a different movie, in a different circumstance.” Referring to her previous post-Twilight blockbuster experience in Snow White and the Huntsman, Stewart says, “I’m sure I could get on board with Captain America, you know what I mean?… It would just have to be the right thing.”
Asked if she’s “purposefully” stayed away from big-budget movies, Stewart says, “Every time I read something and I’m willing to sign my name on the dotted line, promising that I’m going to fulfill this part and not just destroy it, kill it dead on a page — I really am like a crazy person, I have to feel like this thing’s real and if I don’t do it, then I destroy it.”
“I felt that way about Twilight. I felt that way about Snow White. I never expected Twilight to even be a series, and we didn’t even know we were going to do a sequel,” continues Stewart. “So I would love another big movie to come along. It’s definitely not something I’m avoiding.”
She goes on to say, “I was 17 when we started the whole Twilight series. I was so excited to do a teen movie. Everything I had done was like kind of heavy and I was really into it. I was just enthralled by it, and that’s what I need. I want to do big movies. You get to play with more stuff and there’s so much more at your disposal. You get to do it on a larger scale, you get to connect with more people. I am all about that. I just want to do it for the right reasons.”
The future may also include some directing for Stewart. “I wrote two shorts that I really am championing right now,” she tells the outlet. “I just need to pull the trigger on [them]. I want to start really small. When I was a kid I was like, ‘I’m going to be the first director under 18.’ I wanted everything immediately. The older I get and the more I work, I realize that I want to do it right, that I want to start at the very bottom.”
She continues, “I definitely don’t want to jump in because of grandiose ambitions and expectations, like I want to be something. I don’t want to be something, I want to do something and I want to do it right. So, yeah, hopefully I’ll be at some weird little festival with a short soon.” What do you think about what Stewart has to say?
