Wakanda Forever Star Wants Kate Winslet to Join the MCU (Exclusive)

Mabel Cadena made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut playing Namora Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and while the actor doesn’t know if or when she’ll return to the MCU, she does have some ideas about who she’d like to see her character onscreen with – and even has an idea for an actor she’d like to see him also joins the MCU. Speak with ComicBook. com in support of the Black Panther sequel’s release on Digital and Blu-ray, Cadena said that while she’d love to see Namora fight Danai Gurira’s Okoye at some point, she’d also like to see Kate Winslet join the MCU for a very specific reason.

“Maybe with Danai next time,” Cadena said when asked if there was anyone she’d like to fight or team up with in the MCU. “I really want to fight [Danai] but I do not know. Natalie Portman maybe, but I don’t know what’s next. Maybe the MCU should give Kate Winslet the chance, because maybe next time we can break the underwater record together.”

For those who may not know, Winslet recently had a starring role Avatar: The way of the water and, as part of that film, she learned to hold her breath underwater for more than seven minutes, something that required special training.

“I absolutely loved it, loved it, loved learning to hold my breath. Maybe that’s why I got so good at it, just because I wanted to do it all the time,” Winslet shared with empire magazine. “We think we’re only able to try new things when we’re young, in our twenties, when we feel a lot more invincible than we do when we get older. So I was so proud of myself! I did something challenging and new.”

She continued: “But putting the skills together and performing with Sig at the bottom of a 15-foot tank for four minutes straight was a career highlight. That woman is such an inspiration! Not only is she effortless and of course beautiful , but her work is always so compelling And she’s such a nice special and lady So, being able to hold hands, act while holding our breath, and do something that’s just very few people in the world can do, and so forth, a film that is so eagerly awaited — was definitely a highlight of my life.”
