As we identified again in December, Patton Oswalt‘s Garth Blunden predicted a key second in 2021’s The Guide of Boba Fett in a 2013 episode of Parks and Recreation. Within the iconic filibuster scene from “Article Two,” Garth presents his thought for the way issues ought to play out within the Star Wars franchise following the unique movies. That pitch contains a near-perfect prediction of how Boba Fett survives the Sarlacc Pit within the Disney+ sequence.

We not too long ago had the chance to meet up with Oswalt for his new SXSW film, I Love My Dad, and on the very finish of the dialog, we put Oswalt on the spot and requested him to manifest one other franchise’s future.

Oswalt did veer away from Star Wars, however he caught with the theme of giving underutilized characters the extra display time they deserve. Right here’s what he mentioned:


“I feel that Marvel goes to understand that they’d an incredible franchise of their laps without cost of their Netflix exhibits with Misty Knight and Colleen Wing, these two actors. Somebody in 5 years, hopefully sooner, will understand, ‘Try this!’ A low stakes, gritty, street-level superhero noir with these two characters, Misty Knight and Colleen Wing. They’re sitting proper there! So I’m predicting that somebody at Marvel will understand what they’ve obtained and they’re going to run with it.”

Simone Missick debuted as NYPD officer Misty Knight in Luke Cage alongside Mike Coulter after which went on to look in Iron Fist and The Defenders. As for Colleen Wing, she was teased in Luke Cage earlier than being added to the Marvel-Netflix realm full drive in Iron Fist. Jessica Henwick performed the martial arts skilled who went on to look in The Defenders as effectively.

Their runs in these roles gave the impression to be minimize quick when the Marvel Netflix exhibits got here to an in depth. However now it appears as if these doorways may actually reopen. Quickly after Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock made his MCU debut in Spider-Man: No Approach Dwelling, information broke that Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher, and ABC’s Brokers of SHIELD would all make their manner over to Disney+ in mid-March.

Whereas there are not any ensures, it does appear to be Marvel and Disney may very well be paving the best way to extra involvement from the Netflix Marvel characters within the MCU. There have been a number of eyes on sequence headliners like Mike Colter’s Luke Cage, Krysten Ritter‘s Jessica Jones, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Citadel, and Finn Jones’ Danny Rand, however there definitely is nice potential for supporting characters like Misty Knight and Colleen Wing to develop.

In truth, Henwick has not too long ago expressed curiosity in returning to the function. Whereas out selling Matrix Resurrections, Henwick revealed that she was ready the place she had to decide on between becoming a member of the Matrix franchise or the MCU. Henwick instructed THR that she was up for the function of Xialing in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, however she feared that by taking the half she “would successfully be placing Colleen to mattress.” She went on to say, “If I used to be given the chance to revisit her, I might, however I simply don’t understand how possible that’s. Charlie [Cox] knew about that chance years in the past. He already knew it was occurring. I feel I might have heard by now if there have been any plans with Colleen.”

Whereas Henwick’s learn on the scenario could also be correct, I keep, you by no means know on this business. Let’s hope Oswalt’s prediction powers shock even Henwick herself and convey Colleen and Misty into the MCU!
