        Because you can get typecast into them. Leo is good friends with Tobey Maguire who did Spider-Man and got fucked on drugs. Tobey hasn't really been in anything big since.

        every time christian bale gets brought up i have to think of him as patrick bateman.
        it actually became an issue for me since i forgot his name in several public scenarios and in my mind his real name is patrick bateman so i keep insisting that christian bale is patrick bateman.
        i dunno why i only realize his name is not bateman when someone actually tells me the actors name is chrstian bale.

    Nerd shit isn't actual art so you're seen as a lowbrow loser only fit for disposable genre pieces. The only Star Wars actor who managed to escape that fate, for instance, is Harrison Ford. Guinness was the only legitimate acting star and Cushing was a B-movie genre guy while James Earl Jones was more a theater guy anyway.

    Look at Star Trek as well. Nobody from there became big stars for anything except Star Trek and then cashing in on being personalities except for Michael Dorn as a voice actor (because he wasn't able to get "real" acting work). Doing nerd genre shit means you will always be associated with nerd genre shit and never be taken seriously as an actor.

    As someone who is a fan of MCU, I think for a lot of actors it has pigeonholed them. Their success outside of the MCU has been limited. And this could particularly affect Timothee due to his age. Remember Mark Hamill and Luke Skywalker?

    The counterexample is Scarjo, who started playing Black Widow at 23-24 and went on to have a good career inside AND outside of Marvel.

    It's an inoffensive advice specifically applicable to him only. He just got nominated for Oscar which will open up many doors, and superhero contracts will restrict your commitment. But of course a lot of people got mad about it, some even said Leo got salty he missed out on Spiderman role.

            I love how the fact they cant out-write Peter Parker as a teenage white boy. Literally comes with the rights of the character.

    I suppose he is talking about playing a main character, all the ones that do it are shitty actors, you can play small roles or one and done villains.

    Annoying fans, 20 years contract obligations for the mcu, cursed if you sign for wb, very limited use of your skills, typecast. One of the few exceptions would be something like Joker, but that was Joker in name only so Joaquin didn't have to play a queer clown who gasses people and dude killed it.

    Unless you have an established career, don't do superhero or you'll be typecasted.
    It's fine if

    But the protagonist will shadow your career.

    Nobody will take a party clown seriously in the acting world. Even if not all of them voice it you can tell real actors (evens those known for exaggeration) don`t think of super hero flicks as actual movies. For them those amount as easy money or exposure at best which is why some promising actors fall for the bait. The thing about those parts is not only that they are shallow but that the character may take over the actor and prevent them from disappearing in their new roles. Some actors are 10 years (3 or 4 movies) playing those parts so the audience form expectations and may react negatively if those are not meet. So basically there is a tradeoff. Lots of early money and fame in exchange of future roles that could have been more challenging, interesting or even provide opportunities to do lots of different things...

    Anyone who didn't answer "typecasting" is a brainlet. Once people look at you and immediately think of a famous character, it's tough to get roles playing characters who aren't similar. Who's similar to superheroes apart from other superheroes? You're pigeonholed, and it's a tiny hole.

    theres a high chance you'll get sucked into endless sequels and crossovers stopping you from working on other films. youre not really able to show off your range or versatility as an actor when youre playing the same character over and over again, its bad for getting cast

    Sound advice. A lesser actor would take the lead in the Adventures of Capeshit and Green Screen 3 just for a paycheck.
