One of the major things that Marvel Studios and president Kevin Feige has been focused on is more diversity and inclusions within their projects. From in front of to behind the camera Marvel is opening up the doors to so many worthy candidates and this news is no difference.
Marvel Studios is said to be searching for a transgender actress to play an unnamed character in Phase 4. Its not known if it will be for a movie or one of the Disney+ showsbut according to Geeks Worldwide filming is scheduled for 2020, so that doesn’t narrow it down at all.
The character is code-named “Jessica,” and Marvel is reportedly looking for “a transwoman actress of any ethnicity in her 20s to 30s” to play her. Now Geeks Worldwide reckons it could be Sera (the Anchorite that hooks up with Angela in the comics), which would make the most sense as she’s currently the only major established transwoman Marvel Comics character.
Or she could be the queen Valkyrie will be searching for in THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER? This could be just as interesting but nonetheless it will be nice to see what happens.
