While this may seem like old news, since it appeared for the first time at the San Diego Comic Con, Maisie Williams was approached to star in the adaptation of the hit video-game The Last of Us. But, since then, Maisie had quite a few interviews, so something new must have appeared.
For example, just a couple of days ago, Arya Stark’s actress revealed that she is very interested in portraying Ellie in a post-apocalyptic US. She also said that everything started with a few tweets, everything developing and growing like a snowball since then.
Just recently, the actress said that she talked with the producers and that she believes they would also love to have her in the film. However, for the moment, The Last of Us is in the very early pre-production stages, which basically means that not even a script is available, let alone a cast, a director and so on.
In the same interview, Maisie Williams also said that she is also ready to jump in a new original superhero series. Yes, she will be a bad-ass, so to speak, in a comic-book-like film in the veins of the hit Kick-Ass series.
The actress didn’t reveal anything at all. However, she did say that this was meant to happen. Seeing all those cosplays with all those over-sexualized superheroines, Maisie Williams thought that she wouldn’t want to be like that at all.
Instead, she would like just to wear a hoodie, put on some jeans and just do her thing. Although nobody can deny that Catwoman is one sexy comic book character, she doesn’t want to be like that – so, as the actress said, there will be no spandex on her.
And this isn’t just a rumor, since she already knows the name of the project. She just won’t tell anybody about it, since (again) this is also in the early pre-production stages. So, maybe when Game of Thrones will end, we will see her not as a superheroine that can lift mountains (like Captain Marvel) or kick some serious butt (like Black Widow), but as a normal person that has super-good intentions.
But, until then, April of 2015 cannot come any faster!
