Throughout her career, Janelle Monáe has proven time and time again that she is a true triple threat — she can clearly sing, her acting chops are excellent, and she’s showcased her dance abilities on a regular basis. Now, she’s got another title that she’s ready to add to her resumé: superhero.
In an excerpt from her new interview with Empire, Monáe said that she is interested in playing Ororo Munroe, better known to X-Men fans as Storm, 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.
