The superhero genre has monopolized Hollywood to limits never imagined. The success of Marvel Cinematic Universe makes other studios try to hit the “super ball.”

Both Marvel movies like DC’s They bring together many of the great stars of the current scene, and many others await their opportunity to put on a superhero costume.

But not everyone in Hollywood thinks the same, as if they were the Gauls of Asterix, some stars are reluctant to be carried away by the temptation of superhero movies.

Timothée Chalamet is one of those exceptions that wants to stay away from superhero movies as much as possible.

The protagonist of the film Dune de Denis Villeneuve is on the cover of Time (via Yahoo!), where he collects the advice that “his hero” gave him when he began his acting career.

“He put his arm around me the day we met and told me no hard drugs and no superhero movies,” said the 25-year-old actor.

Timothée Chalamet has participated in several successful films throughout his career, including Call me by your name, Lady Bird or Little Women, in addition to the aforementioned Dune.

The actor addresses this week the filming of Wonka, the origin film of Willy Wonka, the eccentric chocolatier created by Roald dahl.

It is understandable that Timothée Chalamet wants to diversify his roles and not get “pigeonholed” into a superhero role, as he quotes in the Time article.

However, there are good examples of performers who, despite being recognized in the UCM, have triumphed outside of it. See the two Oscar nominations for Scarlett Johansson by Jojo Rabbit and Story of a marriage.

What do you think of the advice Timothée Chalamet received? Will it be able to resist the call of superhero cinema for years to come?
