The film is being a success on the streaming platform, occupying number 1 in several territories, including Spain, since its premiere on November 10.
The move has gone very well and Lohan is back in the news for her work as an actress, not for her personal scandals.

She has expressed this in a new interview for Forbes on the occasion of the premiere of ‘Christmas at once’, where she has made it clear that, although she has found her comfort zone in the romantic comedy, she is willing to explore other genres that she has not touched so much throughout its trajectory.
“I tend to be a person who accepts what comes along and goes where the scripts take me”declares Lohan to the medium. “I love doing rom-coms, so that’s something I’m always looking for and I do a lot of them when the occasion calls for it, but there are definitely other genres that interest me.

Lohan doesn’t specify which character she would like to play for Marvel Studios, but It is clear that the actress knows that currently it is the superhero cinema that rules at the box office and on a cultural levelso it’s no surprise that she, like so many others, is letting the almighty studio know she’s available… just in case Kevin Feige wants to give her a call.
It won’t be because you haven’t tried
It’s not the first time Lohan has used an interview to pitch a decent proposition to Disney. For years, while it was speculated who would be the actress in charge of playing Ariel in the live-action remake of ‘The Little Mermaid’, the actress of ‘Herbie: Full’ was offered as a candidate to embody the famous red-haired mermaid. However, as everyone knows, the role went to Halle Bailey. She also expressed her interest in playing the character at the Hollywood Bowl function to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Disney classic in 2019, but her choice was Lea Michele.
Since Ariel, her dream role, has resisted her, Lohan wants to become a superhero, and it seems that she has been trying for a long time too. As revealed by the actress, He already tried to join the UCM in 2014 and it is rumored that he did a casting for Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch (via ScreenRant), but as everyone knows, Elizabeth Olsen landed that role. Of course, there are as many characters in Marvel comics as there are actors in Hollywood, so if the studio wanted to (and it’s a big “if”), they’d be spoiled for choice.
