Kristen Stewart Reveals the One Person Who Could Convince Her to Star in a Marvel Movie

While Kristen Stewart has had her moments in indie movies as well as blockbusters, the actress revealed that she will “likely never” star in a Marvel film unless one specific person asked her.

The Love Lies Bleeding star said on a recent episode of the Not Skinny but Not Fat podcast that making a superhero movie “sounds like a fucking nightmare, actually.”

When host Amanda Hirsch told Stewart that she could see her playing Mary Jane “MJ” Watson from the Spider-Man comic, the actress clarified that she does “like big movies because I like people to watch them when I’m in them.”

But she added that the “system would have to change. You would have to put so much money and so much trust into one person…and it doesn’t happen. And so therefore what ends up happening is this algorithmic, weird experience where you can’t feel personal at all about it.”

“But maybe the world changes,” Stewart continued, noting that if Barbie director Greta Gerwig asked her to star in a Marvel movie, “I would do it.”

The Oscar-nominated actress is no stranger to big films as she led the highly successful Twilight saga, playing Bella Swan, opposite Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen and Taylor Lautner’s Jacob Black.

Later in the interview with Hirsch, Stewart, who’s also a huge Barbie fan, recalled getting “emotional” while watching Ryan Gosling’s “I’m Just Ken” performance at the 2024 Oscars ceremony earlier this month.

“I was, for some reason, crying and laughing while watching the Ken thing,” she said. “It’s emotional, dude, watching Greta watch it. When they did the one cutaway of her and she was just, like, front-row belting and looking at the thing she helped kick-start, I was like, this is too much.”
