Did Monica Rambeau Just Join the CAPTAIN MARVEL Cast?

Did Monica Rambeau Just Join the CAPTAIN MARVEL Cast?

Marvel's first female centric superhero film has gained another cast member.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, that'd be DeWanda Wise, who you might know from Netflix's She's Gotta Have It series.

Marvel is owned by Disney, parent company of ABC News.

The film is being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Walter Lawson / Mar-Vell and Ben Mendelsohn is rumored to play the villain, Skrull commander / leader. So could DeWanda Wise be playing Monica Rambeau?

In the comics, Captain Marvel is the alter ego of Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, who becomes a hero when her DNA is fused with an alien's after an accident.

Captain Marvel is a Marvel Cinematic Universe prequel of sorts, taking place in the 1990s.

Though her character hasn't been named yet, the role is being described as a co-starring one, and we have a great feeling about the potential for this to be Monica's introduction to the MCU. Because of confusing Marvel Comics lore, she later names herself Photon, Pulsar, and Spectrum, but she remains an impressive figure, even going on to lead the Avengers at one point. She can then use that energy as her superpower.

Captain Marvel - Marvel's first film to center on a female hero - is set to open March 8, 2019. So I'm going to put my money (and my hopes) on Monica Rambeau.
