After its introduction in Spider-Man: No Way Homelater appearances in Disney Plus’ She Hulk series, and now his solo project in Daredevil: Reborn, Charlie Cox‘s Matthew Murdock has officially put his stamp on the MCU. And although iron fist wasn’t as successful as its Netflix counterparts jessica jones, Luke cage and daredevilthere’s a 30-year-old English actress who – after a below-par response from Netflix The Avengers titled equivalent the defenders – wants to migrate to the bigger MCU along with Cox, who seems to have run away with fame and glory a bit.
Jessica Henwick is known for roles as Nymeria Sand on the HBO series game of ThronesX-wing pilot Jessika Pava in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and most prominently, Colleen Wing in iron fist. Henwick made her television debut as Bo on the BBC children’s series spiritual warriorsthen appeared as Amy Lang in silk in 2014 and sand in game of Thrones the following year. Coleen Wing, a skilled martial artist, tries to avenge her father’s death by opposing a criminal organization known as The Hand with the help of Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist.
Henwick has been content with her Netflix journey, but shortly after Cox’s rise to stardom, she’s looking for other opportunities to return as Wing, particularly within the broader scope of the MCU, which continues to expand its catalog of Disney Plus series and feature film sequels.
The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Henwick not long ago and touched on the topic of Cox’s integration into the MCU. After praising her 39-year-old co-star, Henwick makes it clear she hopes this trend continues so she — and audiences alike — will see it the defenders in action alongside MCU fables like Black Panther, Thor, Hulk and more.
Henwick last appeared as Colleen Wing in a one-off episode of Luke cage‘s second season titled Wig Out in 2018. She’s been a busy bee when it comes to movies; She landed the role of Bugs in The Matrix ResurrectionsSusanne Brewer in The gray manand will soon join Daniel Craig’s Detective Blanc along with an ensemble cast by Rian Johnson knife out Consequence, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
It doesn’t sound like Colleen will have a cameo role in Cox’s upcoming film daredevil Solo series, but maybe Disney and Marvel execs will hear their prayers and they’ll migrate iron fist Star to join their fellow Defenders in the more prominent superhero realm.
Marvel Studios Daredevil: Reborn will be coming to Disney Plus in Spring 2024.
