Katherine Johnson, Henson’s made it pretty clear that she likes to keep us on our feet.

In that spirit, Henson told The New York Times that she’s eager for a new script...preferably from comic powerhouse Marvel.

“I would love to be a Marvel superhero,” she told NYT in an interview published on Friday.

Marvel has been flooding the Netflix Originals realm with shows based on their classic comic series “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist,” and “Luke Cage.”

“I’m dying to get into some comedy,” she continued. “I think I’m a stronger comedic actress than a dramatic actress. You guys just fell for the drama side.”

Marvel - if you’re reading - we’re waiting.
