According to scooper Daniel RPK through his Patreon service, he’s heard Kenobi star Moses Ingram in talks with Marvel. I should stress that sometimes Daniel reveals things on his Patreon he hasn’t been able to back up. However that never stops people from posting them on social media as genuine exclusives. For now, until we hear any more on this I’d treat it as an outside rumor.
🚨 Moses Ingram (Obi-Wan Kenobi, O Gambito da Rainha) está em negociações com a Marvel Studios.

Equally, even if Ingram has had some talks with Marvel, which doesn’t seem a crazy idea, there is no guarantee those talks progress. Marvel have been in talks with Keanu Reeves for a role for years and so far nada. However perhaps Reeves can currently afford to be a bit more picky than Ingram in terms of star power.
Ingram is no newcomer, but for the geek community she’s risen to prominence recently. Ingram played Reva the Inquisitor, who was outside of the leads, one of Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s major characters. Given that we know Reva’s story goes on, it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine Ingram picking up the Lightsaber for Disney again. However there’s no reason the actor can’t also be in a Marvel project at the same time?
I can’t say I was a huge fan of the Reva character in Kenobi. However I really don’t have much criticisms of Ingram, more the writing and the way Reva’s arc was designed to unfold in the final product. Still, I’m keen to see what Reva could be like in whatever she shows up next in. The character has of course a new dimension to her, and perhaps won’t be overshadowed by franchise juggernauts Obi-Wan and Vader.
As for a Marvel role? I can think of plenty of roles off the top of my head, but until we have more concrete details, like what movie or show she could be in? Well, I don’t think it’s worth speculating too wildly.
