She's Making a Splash in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Teyonah is taking on the role of Monica Rambeau on Disney+'s WandaVision. It's the first time Monica has been seen on screen as an adult. "To see that Marvel is going to use this unapologetically Black, unapologetically strong, ambitious woman and bring her into the MCU . . . I'm so excited by that," she gushed to Harper's Bazaar. "I feel energized by what this means for the culture, for the world."
For those who aren't familiar, Monica is the first woman to ever hold the Captain Marvel moniker in the comics, after Marvel trademarked the name.
