Julia Louis-Dreyfus has a cameo in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, where she plays a potentially significant role in the MCU. Many viewers expect to see Louis-Dreyfus in upcoming Marvel movies and shows.
While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Marvel producers Nate Moore and Zoie Nagelhout shared that the studio has bigger plans for the actress. Moore said, “She’s so talented and you can do so much with her. And she’s game for it. She certainly didn’t come to us and say, ‘I’ll be in one show once.’ She was like, ‘I want to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.’ And we said, ‘Great! Let’s get you in and let’s figure out how to use you.’ And the truth is, I think you will see her in the future. Definitely.”
Moore further added, “It’s one of those things where you’re like, ‘She’s never going to do it.’ It is probably an open secret that most of us at Marvel are kind of obsessed with Seinfeld, probably more than Veep. Just the idea that she would be in a Marvel show… Is it really going to happen? And the fact that she was so game blew our minds.”
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier director Kari Skogland and head writer Malcolm Spellman were unaware of Louis-Dreyfus’ casting. Skogland said, “I don’t know how that secret got kept. Those things just come out, but somehow she was a nice surprise.”
