KJ Apa Wants to Play a Superhero After 'Riverdale'

KJ Apa Wants to Play a Superhero After 'Riverdale'

KJ Apa gets to play an increasingly action-heavy role on Riverdale, and it has inspired him to think big.

Shooting a recent fight scene in which Archie doesn’t fare particularly well (you know the one) actually made the actor excited about turning to action movies.

“Shooting that scene actually made me realize that I really, really love action,” he told Esquire in an interview.

“All the spots [for superhero movies] are being taken up while I’m shooting Riverdale. I think doing some more physical roles would really excite me.”

We can totally see KJ playing a superhero! After all, his Halloween costume was Spiderman.

TELL JJJ: What superhero do you think KJ should play?
