In case, Marvel wishes to bring to screen a brand new superhero story then they might be well advised to call Jim Carrey.
While promoting his new documentary film Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – The Story of Jim Carrey & Andy Kaufman Featuring a Very Special Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton, during the recent Toronto International Film Festival, Carrey spoke to The Hollywood Reporter. He talked about a wide range of subjects including his eccentric behavior at various Fashion Week events and media interviews.
However, he gave detailed insight into his thoughts on what roles he wishes to do, irrespective of whether such characters exist or not.
“If Marvel wants me to… Neurotic Man! Man That Doesn’t Exist!”Carrey said.
Carrey also spoke that he is not excited about sequels and ironically his only past association with Marvel has been a sequel. Carrey played the part of Colonel Stars and Stripes in the 2013 film Kick-Ass 2. That movie was not made by Marvel Studios and wasn’t included in the MCU. However, this movie had Mark Miller’s “Hit-Girl” and “Kick-Ass 2” comics published by Marvel Comics as the source material.
While we don’t have an idea of how Neurotic Man would look, Colonel Stars and Stripes is not the only time when Carrey ventured into the comic book domain. He had also featured as Riddler in the 1995 film Batman Forever.
