First, it was Sterling K. Brown who made an appearance in Black Panther. Now, another ‘This Is Us’ actor will be cast in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here, look who.
NBC drama ‘It’s us’ is airing its sixth and final season, so it’s no surprise that many of the main cast members are booking new projects. For example, Milo Ventimiglia not only has a new work series but he will also appear on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4. But now, we know that another actress from the series lands a new role in the MCU.
This certainly isn’t the first time an actor from the show has been cast in a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In 2018, Sterling K. Brown, who plays Randall Pearson on the show, portrays N’Jobu in Black Panther.
With the expansion of the MCU to television, many actors have the opportunity to join the superhero fever. The next series to appear will be moon knight, but there are others in production like She Hulk and Ironheart, which this “This Is Us” actress will be part of. Can you imagine who?
