What form will she be, gaining her powers or a military woman pre-powers?, whatever shape the name of the actress maybe revealed in a few weeks or at least the character. Will it be Natalie Dormer, Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain or Vikings Katheryn Winnick no one knows as this is all speculation.
The Rumour comes from Latino Review’s El Mayimbe Instagram page, it maybe a spoiler so you’ve been warned! Read on if you dont mind…
RT! HOT #MARVEL #RUMOR ABOUT #CAPTAINMARVEL #SPOILER Apparently, from what I’m being told, the rumor is that the studio has cast the role of Carol Danvers & keeping it top secret. I’m also being told we will first see her in #AVENGERS #AgeofUltron as originally written in previous drafts of the screenplay. In terms of the standalone film, the Marvel brain trust has blocked out the plot & story with the intention of bringing an established writer to write the script. Comic writer Kelly Sue DeConnick wanted to take a crack at writing the screenplay but I’m not sure if she got the gig. Also, I’m told legendary comic writer Jim Starlin, who has a rich history with Captain Marvel is aboard the project as a consultant. All of the above is #UNCONFIRMED so take with grain of salt until further notice but it’s within the realm of plausibility.
So who is this Captain Marvel? Orignally started as Ms.Marvel making her debut the March edition of Marvel Super-Heroes #13 1968 but only as a member of U.S Air Force.It was January 1977 she made her debut as Marvel in her own self-titled comic.Carol Danvers possesses superhuman strength, enabling her to lift/press 50 tons under optimal conditions. In addition, Captain Marvel has superhuman durability, the ability to fly, and can absorb and channel energy.
No one has been attached but the gossip are saying comic book Kelly Sue DeConnick the current writer of of Captain Marvel comic with comic legend Jim Starlin (Thanos creator) involved to oversee things.With Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr.Strange, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Marvel Phase 3 is slowly coming together so seeing Captain Marvel getting a lead we would not come to surprise to us, making that debut in post credits scene.
Captain Marvel is due for a 6th July 2018 (2nd November USA) release with Avengers: Age Of Ultron out 24th April in UK (1st May USA).
