Former Variety reporter Kris Tapley has tweeted out some interesting news concerning a new casting addition to an unknown Marvel film. As Tapley is claiming that WWE wrestler Becky Lynch has a role in an upcoming Marvel film, however, he didn’t clarify if he was referring to the Marvel Studios films or the Sony ones, many are assuming that Kris is talking about the MCU here.

Shang-Chi’s fighting tournament angle would be interesting in for Lynch to play a role given her experience in the ring. That isn’t the only potential project as there are plenty of other options like Black Widow (multiple women are playing Widows in the film) and various other projects are possible. It’s a little weird that Kris is being that vague with the information. There are other projects with Marvel projects to consider such as Morbius and Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
Considering this is simply a tweet missing many details and not a full-scale report it might be worth treating as a rumor.
