Meghan Markle has reportedly asked her agent to find her a role in a superhero movie as she seeks financial independence and plans her return to acting, Fox News reports.
Markle’s agent Nick Collins has been scouting for superhero roles. Markle has reportedly agreed to a voiceover role in an upcoming Disney project, the company where Marvel belongs.
According to the Daily Mail, an unnamed insider revealed that Markle has said “has said she wants her return to acting to be part of an ensemble cast in something like a superhero film,” and Collins is “actively looking for such a movie for” Markle, 38.
“Meghan is planning a series of meetings in Hollywood. She has already done the voiceover for Disney and now word is out that she’s looking for a superhero film, as a voiceover or even on screen,” the source claimed. “She knows she can’t carry a film as an actress. People won’t be able to get past the fact she’s Meghan Markle. But she’s determined to act again and she thinks a big, ensemble film is the way to go.”
According to the source, she’s looking for “something that pays big but which doesn’t put her front and center.”
The source pointed out that Markle would join the likes of A-list movie stars including Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence by participating in a Marvel movie.
“There used to be a certain stigma attached to Marvel films but now they are the biggest market in the world,” the source said. “That’s what Meghan wants.”
