In a candid conversation, when he was asked to choose between Priyanka and Deepika Padukone as the next Captain Marvel, he said, “We have to choose Priyanka. (We are) huge fans, big fans. We are good friends. We are working on a project. We are producing a show, Citadel.”

The Russo Brothers have always praised Priyanka in their interviews. Speaking to about Priyanka, Joe Russo said last year, “She is an incredible star. I mean I think she’s been amazing. We just read a table of the show a few days back and it was fantastic.”

Anthony Russo and Joe Russo directed a mid-credits scene in Captain Marvel, with the titular character meeting the Avengers. Brie Larson played the role of Captain Marvel in the 2019 film.

Priyanka wrapped up the shooting of Citadel a few weeks back. Talking to Collider about the show, he said in December last year, “I think there’s nothing like Citadel on television. It’s extremely high scale, very smartly actioned, stunts, but at the same time it is a drama. And it has a heart too. So, I think there’s really nothing like that on TV right now and that’s one of the big reasons why I really wanted to do it. Doing something for several episodes… you know it There’s a commitment.”

Priyanka’s Hollywood films Ending Things and It’s All Coming Back are in the pipeline. She will also be seen in a Hindi film – Farhan Akhtar’s Jee Le Zara, co-starring Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt.
