"I keep hearing this rumor also," Gurira told Ellen DeGeneres Wednesday when asked about the prospective female superhero film. "So I mean a bunch of people are making the rumor up so you're not alone, but yeah, I just got asked that a couple of days ago and, you know, I think it is a rumor. But I think that, you know, the cool thing is that it's showing that there's this hunger for that type of thing."
"The awesome Brie Larson is filming 'Captain Marvel' as we speak," the actress said when Ellen showed a group photo of the Marvel women (below). "These things are starting to happen and I think it's really exciting because it's showing that yeah of course it's time we start seeing the perspective of a story come from exclusively from women. I mean, magic happens when women do their thang. You know what I'm saying?"
"We're putting it out there," Ellen said. "And I just want to say that I can do superhuman things if you need me in it at all."
Gurira's "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Infinity War" co-star Letitia Wright also chimed in on the "rumor" on Twitter Wednesday morning.
a rumour is always a rumour until you have clarification from the person/source itself 😓☝🏾
