Marvel Studios is reportedly casting “transgender actresses only” for a new role in the franchise.
The casting call for “Jessica” reportedly is looking for a trans woman of any ethnicity in her twenties or thirties.
On Sunday (July 29), Pose actress Angelica Ross tweeted, “Ummmm Marvel? They keep asking if I’m joining the family. You want to tell ‘em? #MarvelStudios.”
Ross has previously been open about wanting to join the Marvel franchise, saying in a Jezebel interview last year: “I’m trying to manifest me being in the Black Panther sequel.”
Geeks Worldwide, who first reported the story, have speculated that the character could be Sera, from Thor: Love and Thunder — Marvel’s only existing trans woman superhero.
