Jamie Lee Curtis is not going to suit up for a Marvel flick anytime soon, although she is open to starring in one. The 'Halloween Ends and Everything Everywhere All at Once' star shared her thoughts on joining the MCU. Talking to People in an interview, she said she was happy there was no green screen in her latest flick, for starters.

"I'm afraid if I do a Marvel movie, they're going to stick dots all over me and make me act by myself in a warehouse somewhere," Curtis told the outlet. "Everything Everywhere All at Once was the absolutely most unexpected, delightful experience maybe of my career, just because the expectations were so low and I was so free in the work and just had a blast making it. And there was no green screen!"

Earlier in May this year, the actress compared her film to 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' while also joking that her flick "out marvels any Marvel movie they put out there." However, she also added she had nothing against the franchise. "I have nothing against Marvel as an entity. I've seen a lot of Marvel movies."

"What I was talking about is that Everything Everywhere All at Once was a little movie that could ... and [we] were able to tell a multiverse story that really touched people," she continues. "What I was trying to talk about was it doesn't have to be a Marvel movie in order to be a spectacle and to really move you."

Curtis is also not holding her breath when it comes to starring in superhero movies. "Honestly, I can't imagine that they will ever come calling because I kicked up some dust," she admits. "But I'm a collaborating artist. I work with a lot of people on a lot of different things, and if the role was interesting and if I could bring what I do to it, of course, I would [work with Marvel]. What am I going to do, say no? Of course!"
