Multi-award winning actress, Taraji P. Henson has recently revealed that she would love to be cast as a Marvel superhero.

The actress is well-known for her role as Cookie Lyon in the hip-hop drama series Empire. She also recently starred as Katherine Johnson in the Oscar-nominated NASA drama Hidden Figures.

“I would love to be a Marvel superhero,” she told The New York Times. “I’m dying to get into some comedy. I think I’m a stronger comedic actress than a dramatic actress. You guys just fell for the drama side.”

This isn’t the first time that Taraji has said she’d like to suit up for a superhero movie. In September, she put it on the list of character types she still has to check off of her list.

“I haven’t played a superhero yet, I haven’t played a psycho character yet,” Henson had told Entertainment Weekly. “I want to play a man, like I want to really disappear. I have so much to do.”
