Actors crossing over from one franchise to another is no longer uncommon in Hollywood and over the last couple of years, we've seen certain stars jump ship from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the DC Universe and vice versa. Now, Shazam! Fury of the Gods actress Grace Caroline Currey is addressing her potential jump to the MCU and it seems like she's undecided about the prospect of becoming a Marvel superhero.

Speaking with The Direct, the Mary Marvel actress revealed whether or not she'd be interested in joining the MCU. Admitting that she's a "DC person", Currey still praised Marvel Studios' ability to turn lesser-known characters into box office-generating icons.

Currey explains: "I have to be honest, especially the comics, I am such a DC person. I really know DC moreso. And of course, Marvel is so… they bring out characters a lot of the times that people aren’t as familiar with, of course, with how we got Iron Man and everyone over there. But I don’t know…"

In the same interview, the rising star revealed that before joining the Shazam! franchise, she actually auditioned to play Jean Grey in the now-defunct Fox X-Men franchise, a role that would later go to Sophie Turner. Currey shared: "You know, I auditioned for X-Men back in the day for Jean Gray. Yeah, to play young Jean Gray, which Sophie Turner… did that. She got the part. And you know, I don’t know. I don’t know."

Shazam! Fury of the Gods is slated for theatrical release on March 17, 2023.
