Zoe Kravitz talks ‘Divergent,’ playing the ‘obnoxious girl’ but no mention of ‘Mad Max Fury Road’

Divergent is the next big franchise appealing to a teen audience and one of the stars is discussing the film and her role. Zoe Kravitz, Angel in X-Men: First Class, plays Christina and talked with Allure in a new interview.

The story takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities.  Tris (Shailene Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups and faces grave consequences due to her status as a “Divergent.”

While it’s not a superhero film, the action genre seems to fit for the young actress.

“When I think of girls in superhero films, I think of girls that I don’t look like. But that’s changing a bit, which is awesome. And they’re really fun to make, honestly.”
