Nina Dobrev is pretty comfy in her role as Elena Gilbert (and Katherine Pierce) in the smash CW series, The Vampire Diaries.

However, the blood-sucking beauty has her eyes on the future and that's what she was talking about this past week at Comic-Con in San Diego. Nina Dobrev said that she would love to play a superhero sometime.

She said she absolutely loves the comic book movie genre and loves the more modern take on the comic book movie.

“I can’t wait to be a Catwoman or a Mystique or something, some day,” Nina Dobrev said.

“I feel like superhero movies used to be a bit more action-y. There wasn’t much depth to them,” Nina Dobrev added. “[Studios are] figuring out that people want to see smart movies with smart characters that have a soul. They’re taking steps in the right direction. It’s making me enjoy the movies more.”

That is so true. I must agree with Nina Dobrev on this one. This new crop are certainly not our parent's superhero movies.

Nina Dobrev may have to wait for a while to take on a superhero role, though. Her plate is pretty full with starring in The Vampire Diaries and keeping up with the drama entangling her and her ex-boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder.

“Those huge movies take six to eight months to shoot, and that’s how long it takes to shoot a season of The Vampire Diaries.” Nina Dobrev said. “There’s no way I could do that until I finished the show.”

“But I’m a big fan of the genre, which is why I want to do it,” she added. “I would love, love to do something like that.”

Who knows? Perhaps Nina Dobrev could fill Anne Hathaway's Catwoman suit for the next Batman? It could happen.
