During her recent interview with Marvel, the actress opened up about becoming one of the most powerful superheroes in the MCU. The Game of Thrones star shared that she had the most fun filming the final showdown between G’iah and Gravik. She shared that she was put on wires for the scene, as she called the scene her “favorite” part. Further talking about her superhero pose, she said,

“You’re like, well, I actually can’t fly. And I’m not attached to the wires right now, so I’m just going to have to do the dumbest thing ever and just look really mean.”

While there were some things that she was quite excited about and some of the things she found dumb, Clarke claims that it was her best day filming the show. And it would be interesting to see if the actress would reprise her character in future Marvel projects to join the Avengers against Kang the Conqueror.
