Meghan Markle has been tipped for a huge number of roles of late. The actress-turned-duchess is reportedly eyeing up Hollywood for her next big break after she and Prince Harry step away from being senior members of the Royal family. But which film could Meghan use as her big comeback role – here are our guesses.
The odds are apparently on for Meghan Markle to make her comeback as the romantic lead in a rom-com, according to bookies Ladbrokes.
Jessica O’Reilly from the bookies said: “It looks like ‘what Meghan wants, Meghan gets’ apart from a leading role in a Disney movie.
“The odds instead favour her acting career to return with a rom-com.”
The odds currently stand at 3/1 for Meghan’s next movie genre to be rom-com, while they are at 7/2 of her appearing in a comedy.
It would not be Meghan’s first romcom, given she has had the lead role in When Sparks Fly, a romcom made for TV channel Hallmark.
As well as that, in her role in Suits, she and the leading man, played by Patrick J. Adams, had a pretty consistent romantic storyline going on, meaning she clearly has all she needs to perform in these roles.
A superhero movie
According to the Daily Mail, Meghan has her sights set on a superhero movie, given she is now better known for her royal marriage than her work on the small screen.
The source told the Mail: “Word is out that she’s looking for a superhero film, as a voiceover or even on screen.
“She knows she can’t carry a film as an actress. People won’t be able to get past the fact she’s Meghan Markle.
“But she’s determined to act again and she thinks a big, ensemble film is the way to go … something that pays big but which doesn’t put her front and centre.”
However, while this could be Meghan’s aim, it doesn’t look like other people agree with this idea, including Dynasty star Joan Collins.
In video footage the actress is asked for her reports on the Duchess making a return to acting.
Collins laughs before replying: “You’ve got to be joking!”
Let’s hope not everyone in Hollywood has a similar viewpoint about Meghan’s return to the screen.

A Disney voiceover
Royal fans were shocked when footage emerged of Prince Harry pitching his wife to a Disney executive for a role in a movie at there premiere of The Lion King.
However, it may be this deal has already been done, and Markle will in fact appear as a voice in a Disney movie.
The same source who spoke to the Daily Mail also said: “Meghan is planning a series of meetings in Hollywood.

“She has already done the voiceover for Disney and now word is out that she’s looking for a superhero film, as a voiceover or even on screen.”
Given the turnaround for animated films, it is most likely the film which brings Meghan back would be at the end of this year, or the beginning of next year.
On November 25, 2020, a currently untitled Disney animation is having its release in cinemas, which could be a perfect vehicle for Meghan.
It is untitled and not too much is known about it, so it may be this is the way to get Meghan back into the voiceover work.

A crime thriller
Meghan’s last film before she joined the Royal family was low-budget crime film Anti-Social, which saw Markle play Kirsten, who was the leading lady opposite a street artist played by Gregg Sulkin.
This film saw Meghan do a role we never saw her in before, as a kind of femme fatale as well as a woman trying to help her friend.
Given the movie’s low budget, a similar film to this could be a good entry point for Meghan to get her back into the frame as an actress.
Meghan Markle is absolutely the topic of a huge amount of speculation, both from the press and from fans.
Though her aim may be to get back on the screen, a route for her to prove herself in Hollywood may be to get behind the screen first, acting as a kind of producer or even director to get herself launched.
Meghan could exec-produce a documentary about her life, starring Prince Harry, as a way to prove she has what it takes to be back in the movie business – it would certainly make enough money to prove her worth.
For now, however, fans will have to wait and see whether Meghan makes it back to Hollywood, and what her ideal vehicle could be.
