True, but if she were to play Hela (for the moment let us countenance separate roles for Hela and Death), it could be more than a brief appearance. I say this because Hela comes up a couple of times in the Simonson arc, and also it sounds likely we will visit all nine realms. So that seems like a lot of work for Hela.
On the other hand, if she were to play Mistress Death, it probably would be limited to just a stinger scene. (Since Hela and Death do not normally interact, as far as I know).
If they were to merge the roles, then Mistress Death's role would be as large as that for Hela that I outlined above. And that might be more than what she was suggesting she would have.
Ha--it will be funny if she turns out to play something completely different, after all this speculation!
