Sherlock Holmes actor Jude Law has admitted that he would love to star in a comic book movie. With comic book movies taking over Hollywood and plenty of them being made every year, we could well see Jude Law starring in a comic book movie before too long.
Law told Collider, “I’m a massive comic book fan. I was buying weekly instalments of The Watchmen, and From Hell, and Parallax and Johnny Nemo. I was a huge comic book fan as a kid and I still am, I still am to a degree. Me and my youngest son are both comic book nerds together; make models and stuff.”
He added, “My oldest son thinks I’m a terrible geek. But I don’t care, my youngest son gets me, he always does. Yeah, it’s definitely something I would like to get involved in if, again if the director’s right and the piece is right and the part is right. I was sad not to be a part of Watchmen when they made the movie, but I was busy doing something else.”
Jude Law can next be seen on the big screen, starring alongside Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Catherine Zeta-Jones, in the movie Side Effects, which has been directed by Steven Soderbergh, based on the screenplay developed by Scott Z. Burns, and is released in the US today and in the UK on March 8.
