Megan Thee Stallion has confirmed joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The 27-year-old rapper recently landed a role on the Disney+ series “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” continuing her ascent into the acting industry.

She revealed her casting for both A24 musical comedy “F-king Identical Twins” and the “She-Hulk” series based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a recent profile with The Cut.

Although the Texas native’s part in the MCU hasn’t been made official, there are rumors that she’ll appear in a few episodes as a “fictionalized” version of herself.

Megan admitted to The Cut that when it comes to acting, she looks up to people like Queen Latifah and Ice Cube.

“When I look at them, it inspires me to take it further than just music,” the Grammy winner said. “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.”

She also revealed that one of her dream roles is even being in a “Bring It On” reboot, playing Gabrielle Union’s cheerleader character Isis.

“I always have wanted to be Isis,” she said. “I would be perfect for that. If they were ever to make a new ‘Bring It On,’ I should be that character.”

More recently the Houston rapper released her second album “Traumazine.”

A followup to her first album “Good News,” “Traumazine” includes features with Key Glock, Rico Nasty, Latto, Pooh Shiesty, and Jhené Aiko, Dua Lipa and Future. The 18-track album follows Megan’s ongoing legal battle with her record label 1501 Certified Entertainment, which she had accused of repeatedly blocking her from fulfilling her contract.

The new Marvel series stars as She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters, a lawyer specialising in superhuman-oriented legal cases.
