From the appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens in her time on TV shows like Game of Thrones and Iron fist, Jessica Henwick has amassed some important franchise / property rights. This list is going to grow as well, as he will star alongside Keanu Reeves next month The Matrix Resurrections. However, to take part in the fourth Matrix Henwick had to turn down a role in one of the last Marvel Cinematic Universe films, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
As already noted, Jessica Henwick already has some Marvel experience thanks to Colleen Wing playing on Netflix Iron fist, a role in which he repeated The defenders and Luke Cage. However, the opportunity came to appear Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, but arrived at the same time he was thinking of playing Bugs in The Matrix Resurrections. Disney and Warner Bros. learned of the competing bids and told the actress that she could only audition for their film if she rejected the film from the other studio. As Hengwick said THAT ONE:
This is appropriate, Matrix– the way I describe the situation, especially if one thinks that whatever role Jessica Henwick chose, she was not sure she would take it. He also did not say what specific character Henwick wanted Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, although given her combat training, I suspect she was being considered for Xu Xialing, Shang-Chi’s sister. Nevertheless, Henwick decided to continue The Matrix Resurrections and scored the role of Bugs, while Meng’er Zhang was eventually cast as Xialing in Sang-Chi (and we expect to see more of it at MCU).
Maybe one day Jessica Henwick will be approached to play someone else at MCU. After all, she would not be the first actress to play two different Marvel characters (like Machersala Ali, who previously starred as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes in Luke Cage and is now preparing to succeed Wesley Snipes as Blade). For now, however, Henwick described Bugs as being “the public eye.” The Matrix Resurrections. While specific details about this blue-haired, white character tattoo are still kept, the movie trailer shows that it helps Keanu Reeve ‘Neo return to the virtual world in which he worked two decades ago. You can see this preview again below.
The Matrix Resurrections will be released in both theaters and on HBO Max on December 22, although you will only have one month to watch it on the latest platform. The 2021 release schedule lists the other films left to be released this year or start planning what you will see next year with the 2022 release schedule.
