It’s only natural that Romijn would like to continue her superhero adventures in a live-action setting for DC if given the opportunity, and that her pick of who she would like to play is only a step away from her animated foundation.
“[I would want to play Lois Lane in] live-action form. I really enjoyed playing [the animated version]. That was a childhood dream come true, to be able to play Lois,” Romijn said to Looper. “She’s technically not a superhero, but we all know who Lois Lane is. And that was really a dream come true. So, yeah. Iconic character, Lois Lane.”
And being that her real-life husband and “Endangered Species” co-star Jerry O’Connell voices Superman in the DC animated universe, does Romijn have any idea of which DC live-action he would like to play?
“You would have to talk to him. I mean, I guess Superman,” Romijn said. “Who would not want to play Supes? He’s Supes.”
In the meantime, Romijn has opted to boldly go the science fiction route with her projects, including a starring role in the upcoming streaming series “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.” Reprising her guest role of Number One from “Star Trek: Discovery,” Romijn in “Strange New Worlds” stars opposite Anson Mount as Capt. Christopher Pike, and Ethan Peck as Spock. In the series, which is expected to debut sometime in 2022, the trio takes command of the Starship Enterprise in the decade before the arrival of Capt. Kirk.
In the meantime, you can see Romijn, O’Connell and Philip Winchester in “Endangered Species,” playing in select theaters and streaming on video on demand.
