Taraji P. Henson would love to play a Marvel superhero as she is “dying” to do comedy.
The Hidden Figures star thinks she’s a much better comedy actress than a dramatic one, and is desperate to be offered a role alongside fellow Marvel superheroes Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.
“I would love to be a Marvel superhero,” she told The New York Times. “I’m dying to get into some comedy. I think I’m a stronger comedic actress than a dramatic actress. You guys just fell for the drama side.”
She previously expressed a desire to save the world in an interview with Entertainment Weekly last year (16).
“I haven’t played a superhero yet, I haven’t played a psycho character yet,” Taraji explained. “I want to play a man, like I want to really disappear. I have so much to do.”
