Keke Palmer was already a best-selling recording artist prior to landing the co-lead role in Jordan Peele's Nope, but her infectious, standout performance as Emerald in the recent sci-fi flick put her on the map in a big way.
It probably won't be too long before the superhero movie offers come flooding in (if they haven't already), but it looks like Palmer has set her sights on a somewhat surprising character.
A TikToker (is that a thing?) shared a video explaining why he feels Palmer would be a perfect pick to play Rogue (as opposed to the heroes she's usually fan-cast as, such as Storm) in the upcoming Marvel Studios X-Men reboot. He certainly makes a compelling case, and Keke clearly agrees.
The actress shared the following Tweet in response.
We're sure to see plenty of fan-art over the next week or so, but we'll start you off with this concept from @Irose_art.
Of course, Marvel Studios hasn't even begun to cast this elusive X-Men movie yet and is unlikely to do so for quite some time. In fact, a recent rumor claimed that contractual issues are preventing Kevin Feige and co. from introducing new actors as established mutant characters such as Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, etc to The MCU, and they may not be able to move forward with a reboot until 2025.
That remains to be seen, but don't hold your breath for updates on this one until 2023 at the earliest. What do you guys think? Could you see Keke Palmer suiting-up as Rogue? Drop us a comment down below.
