To date, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has employed plenty of actors, some of whom were well-known before they took on the roles. Others weren't as well known. Many have now become synonymous with the superheroes they played in the films. Reality television star Caitlyn Jenner actually wants to play a role in a future Marvel movie. However, she is insisting that she could be cast as one of the baddest villains in the MCU.

Jenner's dream role

Reality television fans have seen Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce) on the various Kardashian reality shows, including "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." In 2015 and 2016, she had her own reality series, "I Am Cait," which put the spotlight on Bruce's transgender operation to become Caitlyn.

Now, at age 68, Jenner has been prominent in headlines as she is a champion for men and women worldwide, based on her courage to make the change. Caitlyn Jenner is now in the headlines again, as she reportedly has a dream role she wants to take on.

As Comic Book reported, Jenner seems to be campaigning for the role of a future Marvel movie villain. Jenner said during a recent Variety interview that she would like to play "the baddest-a-- lady you've ever seen in your life." Jenner added she could be the "wicked queen" or "wicked lady," saying her deep voice would be perfect for the part.

All she would need is the costume and makeup. She said she'd draw on her experience to play that "bad-a-- b---h."

Jenner auditioned for Superman role

The report mentioned that way before the first Christopher Reeve Superman movie was released, Jenner was among those auditioning for the lead role. At the time, that was Bruce Jenner vying for the superhero part.

Instead, the movie studio went with a guy named Christopher Reeve, who became famous for the role. Reeve has since passed away but is also known for being an inspirational individual after his unfortunate horseriding accident left him paralyzed from the neck down.

Bruce Jenner was offered a screen test for the role just four months after winning a gold medal at the 1976 Olympics.

She indicated she's happy she didn't get the part of Superman, too. At the time, "Bruce" was struggling with her true gender identity and said she would have had trouble playing such a masculine role. Over the years, a few other male actors have taken on the role, including the most recent Clark Kent/Superman, Henry Cavill.

Plenty of villains available

The Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn't seem like it's slowing down anytime soon. There are three new Marvel Movies on the slate for 2019, with "Captain Marvel," "Avengers 4," and "Spider-Man: Far From Home." The films all seem like the villains are set, as Thanos and Mysterio are the likely choices for two of those movies. The "Captain Marvel" film, which won't be streamed on Netflix, is likely to have an alien as its bad guy.

There haven't been too many female villains in the MCU yet, but there are plenty of female superheroes. The Black Widow movie, with a setting already revealed, is in the works for the popular Avengers femme fatale.

The hit movie, "Thor: Ragnarok," featured a strong female villain opposite Thor, his brother Loki, and the Hulk. Cate Blanchett took on the role of Hela, who was out to take over or destroy Asgard.

There are a variety of other female villains available in different Marvel comic book titles. There's also the fact that Disney/Marvel seem on track to be able to use Fox property rights for the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and other characters that couldn't make it into Marvel movies before. That may give Caitlyn Jenner the opportunity for some sort of role in the MCU, should the casting call for her to appear on the big screen. If not, maybe Warner Bros. and DC have something in mind as plans for new movies in the future move forward.
