depending on the script for The Movie Formerly Known As Infinity War, either Gamora or Missy Knight, I guess

Missy knight would be interesting although I suspect she'll be a lot more grounded in the Luke cage series. Then again, people said black widow wouldn't work because she arguably doesn't have powers and she's turned out great!

Elodie Yung, who portrayed the character in the 2nd Season of Daredevil on Netflix, is of Cambodian descent.

It's slim pickins' for the movieverse, so I am going with Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie. Feige and company have been promising a shake up post Infinity War, and if Odinson is stuck in Asgard as King Thor a warrior woman on a flying horse may not be a bad replacement.

While she doesn't exist in the MCU yet, I'd love to see Monica Rambeau.

Preferably in a Nextwave movie that's as irreverent and whacky and canon-defying as the Deadpool movie.

What if they cast a woman of color as Capt. Marvel?

^ After Tessa Thompson posted that "fly high, fly proud" thing I kinda wondered about that. It wouldn't make me happy but I guess it could work, depending on the actress they picked.

And btw, does Mantis even count? She's probably going to be green, lol.

They should use the new Ms. Marvel, but make her older.

I actually wouldn't mind if they "Hope Van Dyne'd" Ms. Marvel and made her a composite of Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau, and cast a black woman in the role, but I know that won't happen.

Ms Marvel or America Chavez. The rest just aren't that popular.

I'd personally keep Elektra, White Tiger and Echo on the TV side.

First to join the Avengers should be Silverclaw or Spectrum.

Oh how funny I was going to suggest Gina but for White Tiger!

For America I was actually thinking of America Ferrera. Whatever happened to her?

Everyone else, feel free to chuck in your casting suggestion too of course

In the comics, yes. In the movies she'll probably just be turned into a green alien (like with Drax)
