With the amount of success the MCU has raised over the years, they are now looking at expanding and introducing new heroes. The next chapter of the franchise will potentially set the stage for the debut of the Young Avengers down the line.
Star Wars actor Daisy Ridley recently took the time to sit down with ComicBookMovie to talk about her latest film Chaos Walking. One of the topics discussed was her rumoured involvement within the MCU.
Ridley admitted that someone asked her about the ‘Spider Woman rumours’ and all she can say about that is that it ‘sounds great.’
Well, it’s funny because someone asked me off the cuff about the Spider-Woman rumours recently, and I went, ‘Oh, that sounds great.’ Apparently, I’ve now declared myself a front-runner to be Spider-Woman which isn’t true!. It’s funny because I don’t really choose things… I [didn’t] set out to do another ‘big film.’ I just read the script, loved it, and loved the idea of it.
She then pointed out that she would be ‘open to anything’ if a Marvel themed opportunity ever occurred.
Basically, should something come along and be great, of course, I’d be open to anything. I just finished WandaVision. What they did with it is so amazing and different and interesting. To be particularly in that world, which is ever-shifting and reimagining itself would be very exciting.
While nothing is as yet confirmed, the addition of Daisy Ridley to the ever-growing MCU cast would be something I’m sure most fans would be happy with.
As we hear more on this we will as always let you know.
