It goes without saying that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has no shortage of A-list actors and as the beloved comic book franchise continues to expand, it's almost certain that more award-winning stars will be joining the billion-dollar property in the near future. Now, it appears that one member of the MCU roster who just made their debut last year wants to see Avatar: The Way of Water star Kate Winslet come on board.

Marvel newcomer Mabel Cadena, who played Namora in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever shared her hopes for the Titanic actress to be cast in an MCU role and she has a specific reason for wanting to see it happen. Speaking with ComicBook, Cadena expressed her interest in squaring off against the likes of Danai Gurira and Natalie Portman in a future project and why she wants Winslet to make the MCU jump.

She said: "I really want to fight [Danai] but I don't know. Natalie Portman, maybe, but I don't know what's the future. Well, maybe the MCU needs to give the opportunity to Kate Winslet because maybe we can break the record underwater together next time."

Of course, Winslet would be a fine addition to the growing MCU roster and given how she starred in Avatar: The Way of Water which is basically a Disney property, the chances of her crossing over to the Marvel realm just became incredibly high. While it can be argued that she only accepted her Avatar 2 role because of director James Cameron, I'm sure an involvement in the MCU would be too tempting for her to pass up. I guess it's only a matter of time before we see that happen.

Avatar: The Way of Water is still screening in select cinemas worldwide.
