Rachel Weisz wants superhero role
Rachel Weisz says Wonder Woman was the first time she had really enjoyed an action movie
Actress Rachel Weisz wants to star in a movie like Wonder Woman and says the superhero film was her favourite film of 2017. Weisz, 47, was blown away by Patty Jenkins' film which featured Gal Gadot in the lead role and would love to work on something similar. However, she insists it isn't the type of film she could make happen herself, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The "Mercy" star, who is married to actor Daniel Craig and has son Henry, 11, with former partner Darren Aronofsky, says "Wonder Woman" was the first time she had "really enjoyed" an action movie because the titular character and her alter ego Diana Prince resonated with her.
