Princess Superhero? Could Markle Be Ready To Hit The Big Screen?

Duchess Meghan Markle is making headlines again with speculation as to what her future in Hollywood might be.

The actress-turned-duchess and her prince husband have officially departed the royal family and are making the way clear to raise their child in North America as they put distance between themselves and their former royal duties.

Markle, who became famous for her role on the primetime show “Suits,” appears to have her eye on another breakout role, potentially in the superhero vein.

Sources Say Markle Wants To Make A Splash With Her Return

“Meghan is planning a series of meetings in Hollywood,” one source told the The Daily Mail. “She has already done the voice-over for Disney and now the word is out that she’s looking for a superhero film, as a voice-over or even on screen.”

The actress who formerly told female workers to channel their “inner Wonder Woman” appears to be looking to do that literally, and has tasked agent Nick Collins, of Hollywood’s formidable Gersh Agency to work on her behalf, according to the Daily Mail.

Markle’s Agent Has A Plan For Her Return

“He has said she wants her return to acting to be part of an ensemble cast in something like a superhero film,” the source told the Daily Mail of Collins.

“He’s actively seeking such a movie for her. He’s saying she is available and open to the best offers.

“She knows she can’t carry a film as an actress. People won’t be able to get past the fact she’s Meghan Markle. But she’s determined to act again and she thinks a big, ensemble film is the way to go… something that pays big but which doesn’t put her front and centre,” the Daily Mail quoted their source to have said.

Harry: ‘What Meghan Wants Meghan Gets’

The Daily Mail went on to quote their source on why Markle might want to make her silver screen appearance in a superhero flick:

“Pretty much every A-list actress including Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Margot Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence and Halle Berry have starred in superhero movies. There used to be a certain stigma attached to Marvel films but now they are the biggest market in the world. That’s what Meghan wants.”

The publication also quoted Prince Harry who once said of his bride, “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.”

Mark Cuban Thinks The Couple Will Be A Success

Meghan and Harry are reportedly looking to support themselves without being connected to the royal family. According to billionaire Mark Cuban, the pair won’t likely have any trouble making it on their own:

“First of all, speeches,” he told PEOPLE Now on Friday. “If the Obamas get $500,000 or a million dollars a speech, they’re gonna get at least $150 to $250 thousand to speak and they get to go out there and network.”

“Number two, you go to Netflix then play them off against Amazon Prime and play them off against Apple TV and play them off against Hulu, [then you start a] bidding war then you get a production deal for movies and tv shows. And then from there, you raise your kids,” Cuban said. …they’ll have that option without having to figure out what they’re gonna do with the royal family.”
