Behind the scenes

  • Having previously portrayed the ill-fated Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel, Gemma Chan didn't expect to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe until Kevin Feige approached her while promoting Crazy Rich Asians to play a new character in some further production, which ended up being Sersi in the film.
  • Before Gemma Chan got cast as Sersi, Sofia Boutella, Marie Avgeropoulos and Tatiana Maslany were considered for the role of Sersi. Maslany would eventually go on to play Jennifer Walters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • Director Chloé Zhao said she and Gemma Chan were interested in creating "a nuanced female superhero that is rarely seen in this genre". Zhao added that Chan "brought a beautiful sense of gentleness, compassion and vulnerability" to the character that would "invite viewers to rethink what it means to be heroic". Chan called Sersi "grounded... [and] a little bit of a free spirit".

Trivia

  • In the comics, Sersi is a member of the Eternals who became a member of the Avengers after Gilgamesh was wounded in battle. However, she eventually chose to become a socialite in New York.
