Stephanie Beatriz, who plays the tough-as-nails cop Rosa Diaz on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, wants to star in a Miss America film, and she wants current Miss America writer Gabby Rivera to pen it.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to be expanding at a rapid rate, and with so many projects in the works, it can be hard to keep up. There are still a long list of characters that we haven't seen yet, and one of them is America Chavez, AKA Miss America. Chavez would be a welcome member to the MCU in that she's latina and openly lesbian, which would help add some much-needed diversity to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now, actors and actresses make these sort of declarations all the time and they really don't mean much. That being said, it wouldn't the first time an actor campaigned for a role and then got it. The fact that America's name is even coming up is important. As the box office numbers for Wonder Woman continue to climb, there's obviously an audience who wants to see women on the big screen. There isn't any reason Marvel couldn't consider bringing America to either movies or television shows in some capacity.
