Popular media and reality star Kim Kardashian revealed her potential interest in taking on a Marvel role, if given the chance.
Kim Kardashian is a global celebrity, having appeared for 20 seasons in the show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which aired on E! and has since been replaced with The Kardashians on Hulu. But aside from her reality show, she has had some limited cameo and supporting roles in various films over the years.
In talking to Intervew Magazine’s Editor in Chief Mell Ottenberg, Kim Kardashian was asked if she had any interest in acting again.

The reality television icon responded by referring to her voiceover work in the 2021 Nickelodeon animated film Paw Patrol, but also mentions that a Marvel movie might be a good fit for her:
Paw Patrol. A Nickelodeon kid’s dog movie. Would I act? I would if something fun came about. Maybe a Marvel movie, that would be so fun to do. I’m not actively looking, but I think things just come when they’re supposed to.
While Kardashian has essayed the role of Delores in Paw Patrol, it is not her first time acting for a movie. She has appeared in roles for films such as Disaster Movie (2008), Deep in the Valley (2009), and Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor (2013).
If Kardashian does eventually take on a Marvel role, should she appear as herself or as an existing character from the Marvel comic books? If she does appear as herself, she would be joining the real-life celebrities that have done the same. These include Jim Cramer in Iron Man, Bill O’Reilly, Christiane Amanpour, and Elon Musk in Iron Man 2, Joan Rivers and Bill Maher in Iron Man 3, Sara Haines in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and of course the king of cameos, Stan Lee appeared as himself in various Marvel movies (aside from other characters).
The most recent real life celebrity who appeared as herself in a Marvel Studios property is Megan Thee Stallion in the Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. The rap artist even went viral with her post credit twerking scene with She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany).
It is interesting to note that Jameela Jamil’s version of the super-villain Titania in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is inspired by Kim Kardashian. Furthermore, the reality television star has taken up studying to become an attorney, reportedly even passing California's First-Year Law Students’ Examination. That seems like a connection that could be explored in a later season of She-Hulk after Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Four.
