Caitlyn Jenner wants to play a comic book villain.

The former Olympic athlete and reality TV star is looking to change her career and is hoping she could be picked up in one of the future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to play the ‘baddest-ass’ villain.

She told Variety: “In a Marvel movie, I want to play the baddest-ass lady you’ve ever seen in your life.

“They got the wicked queen or the wicked lady. Just do the makeup and the outfit. And I got the deep voice.”

Jenner also revealed that prior to her transition, she actually auditioned for the role of Superman in the 1978 film – the role eventually went to Christopher Reeve – but she said it was too much for her.

“It was just too much for me,” she added.

“I would have gone down as the most macho guy in the world, and that’s not me. It’s not even close to being me.

“That’s why I want to play that bad-ass bitch. I can play that girl.”

Well, with the MCU already planned to run for the next 20 years at least, there is room for Jenner to nab that desired dream role.
