Megan Fox Wants to be a Marvel Superhero!
In an interview with the Washington Post, legendary actor Megan Fox confirmed that she hoped to be cast in one of the Big 2 big-screen superhero universes. We’re sure it will come as no surprise to our Marvel Blog True Believers that I believe she would be a perfect cast for the Marvel Cinematic Universe! As you might expect, I have already prepared a fancast – I’ve just been waiting for Fox to step into the Marvel Multiverse!
A History of Fox
Megan Fox grew up a fan of comics, and the famous actor even wanted to be a comic artist before she became a famous actress. She opened up about her love of the storytelling medium to Entertainment Weekly in 2009, saying:
My sister used to collect comics when I was a kid, so I got obsessed with it through her. And I really like to draw so I’m obsessed with with a lot of the artists that do comic books. It’s just a good world. It makes me feel good. I love Comic Con. I loved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was such a big part of my childhood. I just enjoy it. I don’t know how you couldn’t enjoy it.
Fox has gone on to talk about her geek cred a lot since 2009, and it should come as no surprise that she wants to join the MCU (or maybe she can call up Olivia Wilde and ask for a role in a Sony-helmed film?).
Fox has appeared in many high-profile roles, including appearing in the Transformers movies, and starring in Jonah Hex, a 2010 movie that was based on a DC Comic, alongside
Thanos Josh Brolin.
However, my favorite role for her has to be in the cult film Jennifer’s Body (you can read my wife Avery Kaplan’s analysis on the cult horror film here, but be forewarned that Jennifer’s Body is decidedly not an all-ages film).
In the interview with the Post, Fox said she would be open to a Jennifer’s Body revival, even suggesting it could become a television series. I would definitely tune in to watch every episode… but I may have mentioned that I prepared a MCU fancast for Fox?
Fox as Angela, Queen of Hel
The role that I believe Fox would be perfect for is Angela, Queen of Hel.
This character is an incredible choice for the actor for many reasons.
First off, the actor is queer (making Angela the perfect role for Fox, who took the opportunity to remind us all that she was bi during Pride Month 2021).
Secondly, she connects to characters like Thor, Loki, and the Guardians of the Galaxy, meaning there’s plenty of crossover narrative potential – and with the ongoing Loki series on Disney+ firing on all cylinders, we are primed for more Asgardian awesomeness!
Plus, she’s a gorgeous, powerful woman who has gone too long without due recognition – in other words, there are just a lot of parallels between Fox and Angela! And it’s true, the actor’s “creative renaissance” is long over due, just like the introduction of Angela and Sera in the MCU.
Wishing For My Fancast
Which role would you like to see Fox step into, in the MCU or in the DC Cinematic Universe (I do have to admit, she would make a great Poison Ivy to Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn)? Let us know what you think in the comment section, Marvel Blog True Believers!
