Given the popularity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s no surprise that even the singer Janelle Monáe has expressed interest in playing superhero. In an interview with Empire, Monáe said that she is interested in playing the fan-favorite mutant, Ororo Munroe, who’s better known as the X-Men’s Storm.  X-Men, in an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film. The star said that she’s even floated the idea of playing the character with Ryan Coogler, the director of Marvel’s 2018 hit movie Black Panther. 

“I definitely have thrown it out there,” Monáe said about her desire to appear in the upcoming sequel to Black Panther. “One of my dreams has always been to play Storm. I don’t know if she comes in Black Panther, but it would be a dream to have her in it.”

Monáe went on to voice her respect for the other actresses who have portrayed the thunder-wielding character, including Halle Berry and Alexandra Shipp, and said that she would be honored to join their ranks. “A lot of women have played Storm and they’ve done an exceptional job, and I would love to be in that line of artists and get to do Storm justice,” she said.

Many are excited for the debut of both X-Men and Fantastic in the MCU after Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox. Although no official announcements have been made yet regarding when we’ll see them return to the big screen, we are still highly anticipating their MCU debut!
