While Amy Adams dries off from being doused in offer after offer, James Marsden is out pitching his own “X-Men” spin-off and wondering why Disney doesn’t want a sequel to his 2010 hit “Enchanted”.
Speaking to E!, the actor says he’s confused why a sequel to the smash hit Mouse Factory musical didn’t happen.


“We all hoped it would happen,” Marsden told me the other day while promoting today’s DVD release of his most recent flick, Straw Dogs.

“I don’t understand why they never did it. It was a very successful movie…But at some point when the gray hairs start coming, you can’t really play the quintessential animated prince anymore. Amy and I were like, ‘If we’re going to do it, we should do it before we’re 40.'”

They don’t have have too much time left—Adams is 37 and Marsden is 38. “If it happens, great!” Marsden said. “If not, what are you going to do?”

Marsden would also be keen to follow in Hugh Jackman’s footsteps – who did a ‘Wolverine’ flick – and do a fully-fledged movie based around his “X-Men” character, Cyclops.

He tells ET Online :


ETonline: You’ve mentioned a few of your other roles — if you had the chance to revisit a character from your past and play the next chapter in their story, who would it be?
Marsden: Cyclops [from the X-Men movies]. It was great to be a part of those movies, people loved them – it’s still the thing I get recognized for the most — but I feel like because there were so many cast members in this 90 minute movie, there was never enough time to give him the depth that other characters had. The first movie was really Wolverine’s saga – and the second and third as well. If I had a dollar for every time someone came up to me on the street and said, “I would have loved to see more Cyclops..”

ETonline: You could finance your own spin-off?
Marsden: [laughs] Exactly. Yes. I don’t think his character was ever fleshed out as much as I would have liked. I may have also been a bit on the young side for those films. If I could go back and put on the glasses and suit again where we do a film to learn more about the character, that’s the one I would pick. He’s ripe for that.

Which would you prefer to see, gang?
