Caitlyn Jenner believes she can nail the role of a Marvel villain: "I want to play that bad-a** bitch"
Decades before her transition, Caitlyn had auditioned for the role of Superman that eventually went to the late Christopher Reeves
Caitlyn Jenner has said how she would love to get into acting, and shared that her dream role would be to play a comic book villainess in a Marvel movie.
As reported by Variety, 68-year-old Caitlyn shared, "I want to play the baddest-a** lady you’ve ever seen in your life. They got the wicked queen or the wicked lady. Just do the makeup and the outfit. And I got the deep voice". Decades before Caitlyn made the decision to transition, she had auditioned for the part of Superman but she did not get it and the role went to the late Christopher Reeve.
"It was just too much for me," Caitlyn continued. "I would have gone down as the most macho guy in the world, and that’s not me. It’s not even close to being me. That’s why I want to play that bad-a** bitch. I can play that girl," she added.
Caitlyn, who was a 1976 Olympic gold medallist, was able to get roles in the movie 'Can't Stop the Music' in the year 1980 and also a few made for TV movies between 1980 and 1981. However, Caitlyn's roles were not always liked with reviews being quite unkind and she ended up being nominated for the 1980 Golden Rasberry Award for Worst Actor.
Currently, Caitlyn is working on a new project which reportedly includes an all transgender cast and crew, but she did not reveal much more. "You have to wait and see," Caitlyn said of her new and upcoming project. When it comes to appearing on an episode of the reality show 'Keeping Up with The Kardashians', Caitlyn shared that it was unlikely and said, "At this point, no. But you never know".
During her interview, Caitlyn also spoke about how she has been meeting members of Congress in private in order to fight for transgender rights. Jenner discussed how she initially had high hopes for the Trump administration and the fact that the president himself had made promises to make LGBTQ rights a part of his platforms. However, only months after he took office, he cut back on protections for trans-kids in schools and also vowed to ban any trans people from being in the military. "I honestly don’t know what happened when he got in there. It was extraordinarily disappointing," Caitlyn shared.
