Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Hollywood's most renowned performers and he chooses his roles very well, but it would be great to see him in superhero movies.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, superhero movies have arguably become the most successful genre in the industry. Currently, the major studios are making fewer and fewer films, which means that the ones they do have to make a lot of profit. Because of this, superheroes are the safest bet. For actors, a major role in a comic book movie is a stepping stone to a bigger profile and sequels that later generate more money and relevance. These factors could be the reason why Leonardo Dicaprio he has never opted for this type of film.
Arguably, Leonardo Dicaprio It is the biggest movie star for various reasons. On the one hand, it has not had a failure in almost a decade. He also constantly works with the best directors, including Steven spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan or Quentin Tarantino. And besides, the last reason is that it has never made a sequel. No matter what genre you enter with your new project, it almost always becomes a hit, which means you don't need to make a superhero movie. He's also the old-school movie star who stays out of the limelight and rarely gives interviews. He is truly a man from another era.
Curiously, the actor does not rule out that one day he appears in one of these films.
Leonardo DiCaprio said that he simply had not found the right project. "You never know. They are getting better and better at complex characters in these movies. I have not done it yet. But no, I don't rule anything out, ”he said.
The closest moment to starring in a superhero movie was when James Cameron prepared the adaptation of Spider-Man. Where Leonardo DiCaprio would have played Peter Parker. But it is a project that never happened.
