Actress Alison Brie has made a name for herself among fans through her charismatic and varied roles in projects like Community, GLOW, and Mad Men. Her popularity naturally leads to many wondering if or when the actress might make a jump into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the lead-up to Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Brie has opened up about her desire to join the MCU.
Years ago, early She-Hulk news reported that the series sought an “Alison Brie-type” as the titular character. Obviously, the role ended up going to Tatiana Maslany, but the idea of Brie in the MCU did not die with that casting. The actress has collaborated with Marvel as a filmmaker for Marvel’s 616 and will be voicing a role in the animated Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. But when asked by Comicbook.com if Brie had her eye on any live-action character, the actress mentioned that her fantasy is playing a villain:
Nothing specifically that I have set my sights on, no, and I think that would be a mistake, because clearly you can’t really dictate. Marvel’s going to do their thing, as they should. I think there’s a fantasy deep in my mind that one day I would get to play a great Marvel villain, but I don’t know which one that would be. People, fans, send me some ideas so I can start the campaign.Alison Brie
While the actress made it clear that there are no characters or projects she is setting her sights on—or at least none that she is willing to share—it seems likely that Marvel Studios would be interested in having Brie join the MCU in some capacity. Whether the studio would want her for a superhero, like She-Hulk, or a supervillain as the actress hopes for is unclear. With the entireties of Phases 5 and 6 to play out, including several unannounced projects, fans may find out where Brie does or does not fit within the MCU in the relatively near future.
