Emilia Clarke is more than just the high-born heiress to the throne and mother of dragons on Game of Thrones. Her breakthrough role as Daenerys Targaryen on the hit HBO show has garnered her critical acclaim. She is far from being a one-trick pony though as she already has a couple of great performances under her belt. We don't know about you guys but we think it's time for her to take on bigger roles in films such as superheroes, perhaps? Some of her castmates on Game of Thrones have already landed major roles in the upcoming MCU film, The Eternals. She, herself, has already expressed interest in working on a project similar to The Avengers. Therefore, we see no reason why she can't land one herself seeing how talented she is. The question is though, which superhero could she play? Well, read on below as we take a look at some of the top characters that Emilia Clarke could play in the MCU.
There have been many incarnations of Spider-Woman in the comics but we specifically want to talk about the first and original one, Jessica Drew. The character was originally intended to be a one-off for the sake of establishing a trademark before getting a proper backstory. Jessica Drew was a generically enhanced human that was given superpowers by HYDRA, becoming their assassin as Spider-Woman. She later reformed and became a SHIELD agent, a former member of the Avengers, and even an Agent of SWORD. Seeing as how the MCU is ramping up for a new phase, it would be a great opportunity to introduce a new character from the ground up and Emilia Clarke would be great to play a young and in her prime Spider-Woman.
With the X-Men franchise now under the guidance and direction of Kevin Feige, it's only a matter of time before we see it reimagined and introduced in the MCU. This is a great opportunity for Emilia Clarke to play someone from the franchise's long list of characters. One that stands out though is Emma Frost, a powerful mutant telepath who can turn herself into an organic diamond. She has become a prominent part of the X-Men when she had a change of heart and became a part of their team. Her ruthless methods get in the way of her good intentions sometimes though, making her quite a complex character. Emilia Clarke would be great as Emma Frost and she would be able to do the character's multi-faceted personality justice.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2021 and it is reported that Clea is set to appear in the film as well. This might just be the perfect time to get Emilia Clarke on board to play her in the movie. Clea is the daughter of Umar and niece of Dormammu. She is Doctor Strange's estranged wife and former disciple. She was also the former ruler of The Dark Dimension before her uncle took it back from her. Clarke has a lot of experience with the occult and magic on the Game of Thrones show. So she is no stranger to these things and would adapt to the role of the sorceress Clea without much difficulty.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be the 4th Thor film in the MCU and we have yet to see Amora aka Enchantress be introduced in any of them. Seeing as how she is one of Thor's greatest enemies, it's about time that changed. There have been speculations that she might appear in the Disney+ Loki TV series. Even if that turns out to be true, what about in the movies, then? This is where Emilia Clarke could come in and play the seductive villain on the big screen. What makes this Asgardian Goddess so dangerous is not only is she an enemy to Thor but she has also developed a love interest for him. This makes their whole dynamic really complicated to convey but we're sure that Clarke will be up to the task.
We know there is already a Polaris in the live-action TV series, The Gifted, but movies and TV don't always mix. There is a great possibility that the character will be portrayed differently in the MCU films to how she is on TV. This is another case in favor of the mutants in the MCU and one that Emilia Clarke could play if the opportunity presented itself. Polaris is the daughter of Magneto and just like his father, possesses powers of magnetism. She has been a member of various mutant groups such as the X-Men, X-Factor, and Mister Sinister's Marauders. The Mistress of Magnetism is a role that Clarke could play when the X-Men finally gets introduced in the MCU.
