Receiving the final season of Letters from Camp, Jamie Lee Curtis stated that she was open to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After mocking Doctor Strange’s Multiverse of Madness in May, Curtis made this comment.
” I have nothing to do with Marvel. “I’ve seen many Marvel films. “
Curtis found many commonalities between Doctor Strange, in the Multiverse of Madness and her latest film, Everything All at once .. These films dealt with themes of existential issues and being unhappy with your life. The one that was big was the studio movie, but the other was an indie film.
“I was speaking about Everything All at Once , which was a movie that could be… and we were able [to] tell a multiverse tale that touched people. It doesn’t need to be a Marvel movie to make it a spectacular experience and move people. “
Kicking Up Dust
Curtis clearly stated that the one film was superior to the other by looking at Curtis’ social media. Everything All at once, unlike “other multiverse wannabe films,” featured old-school special effects that used real people/real locations and would have cost less than the whole craft budget of Doctor Strange from the Multiverse of Madness.
“Maybe it was time to start a friendly rivalry. You can’t call a company Marvel-less if you make fun of it. We out-marveled Marvel, that’s what I meant. “
Curtis describes herself as a “collaborating artist”, who collaborates with many people to achieve many things. If a job was appealing enough, and Curtis could contribute her talents to the role, then she might consider Marvel. Curtis does not expect that the studio will call her after she has “kicked some dust”. She would also find it hard to imagine that Marvel’s going to have a role requiring a 64-year-old woman.
” I’m afraid that if they make a Marvel movie about me, they will put dots on me and force me to act alone in a warehouse. Everything All at once was by far the most surprising and enjoyable experience of my career. The expectations were low, and I felt so relaxed in the work. It was just a great time. There was no greenscreen! “
Bruce Campbell who like Curtis has a long history of horror movies has expressed similar concerns. He cited having to wear uncomfortable superhero costumes for many hours per day, and the need for stuff that isn’t really there. Perhaps Marvel can fit Curtis into the same mold as Campbell, who did well making appearances in superhero films.
