WandaVision star Teyonah Parris has spoken out about her excitement to play the “Badass” Monica Rambeau in the upcoming Disney+ series. The star will be playing an older version of the character we met in Captain Marvel.
When we first met Monica in Captain Marvel she was still a child, but this series is set over 20 years later and Monica will now be an adult. She will be an Agent of S.W.O.R.D and appears to be caught up in whatever, Scarlet Witch and Vision has caused.
Teyonah Parris Interview
In a recent interview with The Undefeated Teyonah Parris discussed her excitement to join the MCU.
That has been a childhood dream [to] be a Marvel superhero. I can even remember…I’ve always said that I want to be a superhero. And then when the MCU opened up, I think I was in college. And then it was like, ‘Oh, I want to be a Marvel superhero.’
Parris went on to explain that she didn’t think this would ever be an option for her, but she expressed her excitement for fans to see what Monica could bring to the table.
“I’m very grateful to be a part of this universe,” the actress said. “And Monica Rambeau is such a badass. She’s such a badass in the comics. And, I just can’t even believe this is happening. This is full-on action movie mixed with sitcoms. It’s wild.”
Well, this sounds as though it will be nothing like anything we have seen before in the MCU. Will we see Monica come into her powers in the series and become the superhero she is in the comics?
The series is due for release December this year and will also star Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. While we wait for its release why not check out the trailer below if you haven’t already.
