Rachel McAdams has been wanting to jump on the superhero movie bandwagon for a while now, having auditioned for Batman Begins, Iron Man and even Fantastic Four. But even though she hasn’t quite made it, she is still determined to bag herself a superhero role.
“I would love to play a female superhero,” she exclaimed. “It’s all sort of circumstantial and depends on the part and what comes up when and what you are doing in your life. But I do love graphic novels and I just think it’s just an exciting thing happening. Some of them are so beautiful.”
So what does Rachel have her eye on? Most of the high profile comic book characters have already been brought onto the big screen, so it seems she may be going after something less well know. She told MTV Movies Blog:
“I just read this book ‘Black Orchid’ and it’s a really interesting character,” the actress said. “She’s a superhero that’s a flower. I don’t know if that would work or the audiences would be interested in that, but she was kind of cool.”
Not just a flower, but a plant/human hybrid able to alter her appearance and voice, regenerate — even fly. And one that, although relatively unheard of, comes with a pretty recognizable comic pedigree, McAdams reminded.
“I like all the Neil Gaiman stuff. It’s great,” McAdams said of the comics god who reinvented the character with a limited series run in 1988. “I think it’s really visually so dynamic and would work really well.”
Having done a bit of research on good old Wikipedia, it sounds like an interesting concept. However, as we have seen in the past with films like Ultraviolet, Catwoman, Elektra and Aeon Flux, movies with female superheroes don’t turn out that well. However, that is mainly due to the creative team behind it. If they get people behind the camera who know what they are doing, then things could get interesting.
 
the fact that she reads comics turns me on! :wow::applaud
 
I remember an interview from a while ago where she said that she wanted to play Cheetara in a Thundercats movie. I think it was when someone asked about auditioning for FF.

Rachel, Kristen Bell and Megan Fox are all comic geeks. That is a huge turn on. :woot:
 
Megan Fox is??! If only she could act she'd be the perfect woman!

Yeah. I read in an interview that she likes Batman, X-Men, Gen 13 and Fathom. Also on the TF dvd she says that her favourite transformer is Starscream. She's perfect. :woot:

As for the acting thing. Who cares? She's not great, I admit, but I've seen a hell of a lot worse.
 
Cast her in any superhero film. Now.

Now, I say!

Does anyone else find it disturbing that a talented actress like Rachel lost two roles to the Queen of Mediocrity Katie Holmes and Jessica Only-Gets-By-On-Her-Looks Alba?
 
I Want all of them in a Birds of Prey movie!

She is a better actress than both of them combined, and in my opinion hotter than both of them.

Yes, especially the latter.
 
Black Orchid? Color me less interested in Rachel McAdams.
 
What do you have againt antrophomorfic Female Flower elementals?
 
No to her as Catwoman. Even though shed be sexy in the catsuit
 
I could see here as a Lois Lane, or even a Black Canary. :up:
 
That's an interesting choice. I'd like to see her try it. We get to see cameos of Lex Luthor, Batman, Poison Ivy, and the Swamp Thing.

Rosario Dawson as well


I have heard of Black Orchid once. She was part of WWs Justice League of Amazons. But i never read the graphic novel.
 
Yes, especially the latter.

Yup. I am so sick of Jessica Alba and her utter lack of talent that unless she has a full-out naked lesbian love scene in a film, I'll never see any of her stupid movies again. Except maybe for the Sin City sequel, but my interest there has nothing to do with her.

Don't bother. You can get lesbian porn elsewhere.
 
For me, A Birds of Prey movie could have:

Oracle - Dinah Meyer.
Black Canary - Jaime King.
Huntress - Eva Mendes.
Lady Blackhawk - Jessica Simpson.
Judomaster - Maggie Q.
Big Barda - Monica Dean.
