Spoiler alert for Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye Episode six
Fans of the Netflix MCU shows have eaten well this week. First, we got a surprise appearance by Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, reconfirming that the series actually takes place in the same universe as the movies. Then on top of that, we had the dreaded Kingpin’s triumphant return in the Hawkeye finale, Who hopes not to really die, otherwise I will riot.
Now, we have another actor tossing their hat into the ring, and willing to sacrifice a lot to make it happen. Jessica Henwick, who played Colleen Wing in Iron Fist, Luke Cage and The Defenders, has revealed that she turned down another role in the MCU, as it would destroy the possibility of her Netflix character filming come back.
Talking to The Hollywood ReporterHenwick said she was considered for the role of Xialing in Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. However, she opted to join the cast of The Matrix: Resurrections instead, as she wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to her first MCU role.
“If I did [Shang-Chi], I really want to put Colleen to bed. It’s not the main factor, but it definitely comes up in the conversation,” Henwick said. I love Colleen. She changed my life. Of course, if I get a chance to visit her again, I will. “
Sadly, the actress – also known for her appearance on Game of Thrones – doesn’t seem too confident that Colleen will be back any time soon. She revealed that she knows about the return of Daredevil years ago, but have yet to hear anything about her MCU debut.
“I just don’t know how likely that is. Charlie [Cox] knew about that opportunity years ago. He knew it was happening. I think I’ve heard by now if there are any plans with Colleen. “And of course, if they want Henwick to play a completely different character, that’s a pretty big sign that Colleen has no plans.
While that pretty much doesn’t confirm Henwick from any MCU content next year, we could see her in The Matrix, which is currently showing in theaters.
