Matthew McConaughey luchó por ser un Vengador pero Marvel lo rechazó

Life takes many turns and currently Marvel Studios would be very happy to sign Matthew McConaughey. But the actor reveals that they have already rejected him once.

As a big fan of the 70s TV show in your childhood, Matthew McConaughey I really wanted to interpret the Incredible Hulk, but Marvel eventually rejected it. As the actor bounced between romantic comedies in the 2000s, the modern boom in superhero movies was beginning to take shape. The movie X Men Bryan Singer began in 2000, followed by the trilogy of Spider-man by Tobey Maguire who broke records and the reboot of Batman by Christopher Nolan.

Instead, Marvel studios began with his Cinematographic Universe in 2008 with Hombre de Hierro Y The incredible Hulk. This movie starred Edward Norton, but the thing could be very different if Matthew McConaughey I would have gotten the part.

At that time, Matthew McConaughey He was known for his participation in romantic comedies such as How to lose a guy in 10 days (2003), Bride by contract (2006) or Like crazy … go for the gold (2008), since his career underwent a great change later with film like The innocent (2011), Killer Joe (2011), Mud (2012), Dallas Buyers Club (2013) with which he won the Oscar for Best Actor, Interstellar (2014) and the series True detective. So maybe it's normal that I got the part Edward Norton, a much more recognized actor who was also involved in the creative part of the film.

Now they want to sign him for some other role.

After the movie of The incredible Hulk it did not turn out well, for now it is the lowest grossing of the saga, it changed actor Mark Ruffalo who plays Bruce Banner and its giant green version. But Marvel studios does not stop preparing new stories and wants to hire Matthew McConaughey for any of them. In fact, it was already rumored that the actor himself refused to be EGO in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Perhaps because he wanted a role that had more travel or in revenge for not signing him as Hulk. Time will tell if we will see it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future or not.
