Lindsay Lohan is currently experiencing a career renaissance much to the delight of her longtime fans. While she's made sporadic film and television appearances over the last couple of years, 2022 signaled her return to the spotlight, starring in Netflix's holiday romantic comedy Falling For Christmas.

The former child star and pop singer couldn't be happier with her comeback and in fact, she already has her sights set on potentially joining a mega-franchise, none other than the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In an interview with Forbes' Jeff Conway, the 36-year-old star expressed her interest in becoming part of the MCU, noting that she has yet to take on a role in an action project. She shared: "I think I’m always the kind of person that I see what comes and take it as it comes, wherever the scripts lead me. I love doing ‘rom-coms’ so that’s always something that I’m going to look for and do a ton of when the time is right, but there’s definitely other - I’ve never done an action film. I would love to do something with Marvel - just seeing what comes my way and I’m open to different roles."

Unsurprisingly, Lindsay's MCU admission sparked major discourse on social media, with a lot of fans convinced that she'd make a good Jean Grey for the upcoming X-Men reboot.

Lohan has long been campaigning to become part of the billion-dollar franchise, revealing in 2014 that she wanted a role in the first Avengers film. It was also rumored that she auditioned to play Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch in Age of Ultron, a role that eventually went to Elizabeth Olsen.

To be fair, Lindsay's look without a doubt screams Jean Grey and by no means is she a slouch when it comes to acting. It also helps that she was once a Disney baby so I guess it'll be much easier for her to get her foot in the MCU door down the line. Hopefully, Marvel Studios gives her a shot.
