Since its magnum opus Avengers Endgame, Marvel Studios has ventured into many sequels and new additions, since the departure of Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, with Black Panther 2 expected to be one of its certified hits releasing this year.
The studio has introduced many fan castings into the MCU including Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and John Krasinski as Mr. Fantastic. If the fans and actors campaign for it, they happen.
Star Wars stars in Marvel
Owned by Disney, Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been some of the most successful properties for the studio. Despite having very strict contracts for their actors, they have snatched up quite a few A-listers in the past including Justin Timberlake and Zendaya.
In its two big franchises, many of its actors have jumped between the two universes, including Natalie Portman who played Jane Foster and Padme Amidala, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Mace Windu, and Oscar Isaac as Moon Knight and Poe Dameron.
Moses Ingram in the MCU?
In one of the teased castings, Moses Ingram of the star wars universe expressed interest in starring in MCU’s Black Panther franchise. At the ‘Star Wars Inquisitors’ panel at Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, she commented on the same:
“You know, I think I get so excited – Twitter please don’t beat me up – from the time I saw Black Panther I was like stunned… Yeah, like, I think that Ryan Coogler is amazing for what he’s done, and I’m really excited to see part two. Rest in peace to Chadwick, yeah.”
She asked the fans to do their job and help the actress get a role in Marvel, as many actors have been cast in this manner, she exclaimed:
“This actually seems like the perfect time to make an announcement… Tell Marvel to give me a job!”
She later teased the possibility of already appearing in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever but confirmed it to only be a joke. Moses Ingram stars as Inquisitor Reva in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Mini-Series.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is expected to release on November 11, 2022.
