If you’re not familiar with Gavankar’s role as Iden in Battlefront 2, the actor has also appeared in a number of other video games such as in Far Cry 4 as Amita, Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds DLC as Tatai, Tanta Sila in Square Enix’s upcoming game Forespoken, and Lola in Oxenfree developer Night School Studio’s 2019 game Afterparty.
Coincidentally, Gavankar isn’t the only person working on Forespoken that is also involved in this new Marvel game.
