Paris Jackson could be coming to the big screen soon in a super way, well at least that’s on Jackson’s bucket list. Recently the singer and actress revealed that she wants to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, either as a superhero or supervillain.
The 23-year-old musician’s desire to appear in a Marvel film derives from her love for MCU movies, in addition to the original comics.
“I grew up reading the comics with my brothers,” Jackson told Variety. “Every time a new Marvel film comes out, we go as a family to watch it… They haven’t let anyone down since 2009.” During the Variety interview she also stated that she’d want to, “to be a superhero or a supervillain.”
Ms. Jackson stepping into the limelight as a mainstream performer would be befitting since her late father is Michael “The King of Pop” Jackson. Although Michael Jackson dominated the music industry, who’s to say Paris Jackson won’t have similar success within the acting world?
If Tom Holland’s fandom of Marvel’s Spider-Man character manifested into him becoming the latest Spider-Man, then maybe Jackson’s love for Iron Man will yield her a part in the next Captain America movie.
According to Variety, Jackson loves Wolverine, Iron Man and Deadpool because “they do what’s right, but they don’t do it by the book. And they have a snarkiness to them, which I love.”
Obviously Jackson playing a role in a Marvel movie would be her first choice, that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t be open to appearing in a DC film. She didn’t explicitly say that during her Variety interview, but her fondness for DC comics implied it.
“I don’t think one is necessarily better than the other,” Jackson told Variety. “Marvel is what I grew up on. It’s like comparing the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. They’re very different.”
One day Jackson will become a member of the MCU, and everyone will witness her greatness on the big screen as a superhero or supervillain. However, until then the budding acting star can be scene on your television or computer screen in the upcoming Hulu teen film Sex Appeal on (Friday) Jan. 14.
