Taraji P Henson who plays Cookie on "Empire," has got her eyes set on the Marvel cinematic universe.
In an interview with New York Times, the actress who recently played a Mathematician in "Hidden Figures," reiterated her wish to play something different from what fans have seen her in.
“I would love to be a Marvel superhero,” she said. “I’m dying to get into some comedy. I think I’m a stronger comedic actress than a dramatic actress. You guys just fell for the drama side.”
In an interview with EW in 2016, Henson had said she would love to play a man. "I want to play a man, like I want to really disappear," she said.
Taraji is popular for her role as Cookie Lyon in "Empire." Her character is the outspoken ex-wife and mother of Lucious Lyon, who served a 17-year stretch in prison for drug dealing.
