I don't think they can do it now, because now doing Spectrum, even though she has a great unique powerset and a surprisingly ample supporting cast for a character who never has a solo ongoing. No real villains, but Danvers isn't doing much better.
While Monica would be nice, I do think we'll see more Black actresses in the MCU soon and not just whoever they cast to play Misty Knight. I would not be surprised if an Inhumans movie is made and Crystal and Medusa are played by black women (my picks are Rosario Dawson and Paula Patton respectively). I also have Lupita as Clea.

Then again, Monica was an actual Avenger in the comics. Misty (from what I have read) was never an Avenger and yet we'll probably see Misty in the MCU instead of Monica.
