The romantic comedy specialist revealed that he is more interested in portraying Hulk than Captain America.
Having been rumored to line up for Captain America part in "The First Avenger: Captain America" earlier, Hollywood hunk Matthew McConaughey recently let out that he prefers to portray Hulk if he is given the choice. Revealing the matter to MTV News, he said, "My favorite one growing up has already been done twice and that was The Incredible Hulk."
Apart from talking about which superhero he is inclined to tackle, the two-time co-star of actress Kate Hudson in "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" and "Fool's Gold" indicated that he has no idea of him being speculated as potential Captain America depicter. Said to be surprised by the rumor, he further added that he was not a big comic book reader, but added that Captain America is "a super cool name".
McConaughey's latest project is "Surfer, Dude". The S.R. Bindler's comedy tells the story about free-spirited longboarding soul-surfer experiencing character crisis when the waves go flat and he is forced to expand into Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV. Starring also Alexie Gilmore, Sarah Wright, Woody Harrelson and Willie Nelson, it has been screened in limited theaters across the country on September 5.
Meanwhile, on the Captain America role, the part of the Marvel's red, white and blue superhero has previously been linked to other Hollywood stars, Leonardo DiCaprio as well as Will Smith. However, Smith's possible participation on the project has quickly been denied when Marvel allegedly stated that they have yet to have any conversation with Smith over the part.
