Dear Hollywood: Cast Gina Rodriguez as America Chavez and Lisbeth Salander

Baldur Bragason/Columbia TriStar, CW, Marvel

Gina Rodriguez wants to play all of your favorite characters, and that’s fine by us.

The first bit of Rodriguez herself via Twitter. She was reacting to an Entertainment Weekly article featuring remarks from Fede Álvarez, the director of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo sequel, The Girl In The Spider’s Web. When answering a fan question about the decision to go away from the first film’s cast, including Rooney Mara, who played Lisbeth Salander, Álvarez replied on Twitter:

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that names like Alicia Vikander, Scarlett Johansson, and Natalie Portman were being suggested as possible Lisbeth Salanders. But Rodriguez has decided to throw her own name in the ring.

To which Twitter happily responded:

The other character we’re hoping Rodriguez plays is Marvel’s America Chavez. After the SXSW “Hacking the Script: Disrupt Diversity in Hollywood” panel, which featured Rodriguez and Yara Shahidi among others, Geeks Of Color’s Avram Vargas asked Rodriguez about America. She was immediately excited, saying that she’s a fan of the character and if Marvel ever adapts America for the big screen, her manager already knows to get her booked for an audition ASAP.
