Yay, Ryan is back! I still remember the huge shitstorm over when DC killed him off.

She could be playing anyone, Marvel hasn't exactly been casting based on race. Mac on SHIELD in the comics is an elder looking white man. She could be playing Mantis, Moondragon, Deathcry, Geena Drake, Phyla-Vell, or even Aleta Ogord. Can't wait to find out though. Plus its great to see new faces added to the film.

True, but that said, the article explicitly mentions that they were seeking an Asian woman for this part. Marvel has changed races for characters in the past but I think that was more about them finding the best people for the role.

In this case it sounds like the part was specifically written for an Asian woman, which would say to me at least that it's an Asian character from the comics.
