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.”
