Thandiwe Newton has revealed why she turned down a role in a superhero film.
The actor instructed LADBible in a current interview that she was as soon as provided to play “someone’s mum who just dies”.
“I was like, ‘Meh, no,’” she added. “It was more the role, you know what I mean?”
Newton didn’t specify what the film was or which studio was producing it.
She did specific curiosity in superhero films typically, telling the publication she loves what’s taking place with the style as a complete.
“The excellent instance is Taika Waititi, what he did with [the 2017Thor: Ragnarok, she said. “I love that the actors in it really want to push it too – of course they do, it’s boring otherwise, Jesus.”
Newton elaborated: “As a genre they bore me, these big franchises, and I’m quite cynical about it too, because it’s just about money; it’s this behemoth of money that’s just like rolling forward gathering more money, right?
“But now I feel like there is a demand from both the audience, I think people who are involved in the movies – but certainly the world – that there is better substance around these superhero things.”
Newton stars in Reminiscence, a science fiction thriller released on 20 August in the US and in the UK.
