The Marvel Cinematic Universe is adding yet another A-list talent to its ranks, as Megan Thee Stallion has been cast in the studio’s latest series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.

– It’s unclear what role Megan will play, as she didn’t directly address the news. However, the Texas native did open up about her recent pivot into acting, which took place earlier this month by way of a guest appearance on Starz’s P-Valley

Megan briefly spoke about her acting roles in a new interview with The Cut, where she is one of September’s cover stars alongside Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex. She then confirmed that she will be making her Marvel cinematic universe debut.

Megan Thee Stallion is also featured in the Cut’s fashion portfolio wearing Vivienne Westwood, GmbH, Tom Ford, Balenciaga, and more — “sexy in a way that’s, well, classy, bougie, and ratchet,” as the Cut’s editor-in-chief Lindsay Peoples notes in her editor’s letter, in which she highlights the inspiration behind the issue.

“When I look at them [Queen Latifah and Ice Cube], it inspires me to take it further than just music,” she explained. “I don’t feel like I’m only going to be an actress—I feel like I’m also going to be a director and I’m also going to be a producer.”

“I think she has it in her tool bag to do anything,” he said. “You could see her in a period piece, whether she’s playing someone in the 1960s trying to come up and make it, or whether she’s in a futuresque sci-fi film and she’s out here whooping ass and fighting on some Marvel stuff.”

“Everybody has gone through their own trauma in their own way, and to me, Traumazine is me facing the things that I’ve been running from about myself. … It’s comforting to know that other people are going through the same thing that you might be feeling,” she shared. “When something happens to people, they feel like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is only me. This is not normal, or I’m probably the only person in the world that feels like this.’ But to hear somebody else talking about something that you’re probably feeling, it’s more comforting and more familiar. That’s why people resonate with hearing other people’s stories.”
