Yesterday Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen caught up with Marlon Wayans to discuss the upcoming release of the comedy sequel A Haunted House 2, during which he spoke about whether he had any regrets about missing out on the opportunity to play Robin in the Batman franchise (Wayans was cast in Batman Returns before the character was omitted, and was also set to appear in Batman Forever before Joel Schumacher succeeded Tim Burton in the director’s chair), as well as whether there’s any other superhero characters he’d like to portray:
Luke Owen: There was a time when you were signed on to play Robin in the 90s Batman movies. Do you regret never being able to play Robin?
Marlon Wayans: Nope, not at all. I have never regretted anything about any movie. Because there are too many rewards for you when you don’t regret things. If you go on with that life, you’ll never achieve. If something is better for you, you’ll get it. I just embrace when things don’t happen and I use it to be creative. Why cry over spilt milk?
Luke Owen: Is there any superhero you would like to play?
Marlon Wayans: Given the chance, I would love to do The Mask or Plastic Man.
