Maisie Williams Talks Superhero Project

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 19, 2014 in Cinema |


Most folks know Maisie Williams as Arya in Game of Thrones, but she’s been starting to expand and do more roles. She recently did an interview with Flicks in the City, talking about several projects. One is the long-gestating The Last of Us movie, which has essentially offered up the role of Ellie to Williams freely. Sadly, nothing is set in stone yet, she says. She goes on to talk about a personal project, a superhero series with her in the lead role. It sounds very far off, but she sounds passionate about it: “It was kind of inspired just from walking around Comic-Con and seeing so many woman dressed as all these sexualized female superheroes and just thinking if I was a superhero, I would just want to wear a hoodie and jeans, and taking that and making it into a superhero that isn’t wearing spandex and isn’t a sexy Catwoman or that sort of thing.”

I hope she gets this project off the ground, as it sounds like something that’d be really neat, especially as it appears Williams herself is pushing it forward. ” I can’t say the title, I’m not saying anything about it, but it’s in that sort of superhero vein, in the same vein as Kick-Ass where the superhero is not super and just has great intentions. That would not be happening yet, it would be happening in a few years, but something that we’ve been in talks about for a little while and I’m really, really, really excited about it… it was going to originally be written as a graphic novel, it’s not based on anything.”
