For anyone hoping to hear Marvel’s Captain Marvel casting choice anytime soon, prepare to be disappointed. At an event in Los Angeles this week, Kevin Feige says they’re “not that close” to picking their heroine. And that we shouldn’t expect any news on that front this year. According to Feige,
I think right now we’re scripting the film, figuring out who we want Carol Danvers to be, and really what the structure of the movie will be and what her part will be in some of our other Phase 3 films. And it would be next year that we start to really think about casting.But while Feige and producer Jeremy Latcham may not be making any decisions soon, they actually ARE thinking about casting. And they know you’re thinking about it too.
“For me, we always have a clear sense of who we want to cast and who we’re interested in,” Latcham said. “We have amazing casting directors — Sarah Finn, who’s been with us since ‘Iron Man’ — but at the same time, when a fan list comes out…”Hmmm. Who have we been saying “over and over again?” I mean, there’s the obvious.
“We look at it!” Feige admitted.
“We read it, we go through it, we read the comments, we look at who people like,” Latcham added. “Sometimes it’s really enlightening. Sometimes it’s the exact same person that they’ve been saying over and over again that we don’t think is right. It’s always fun to kinda go through it and see what people are up to.”
And the other obvious, oft-repeated.
And the previously and repeatedly rumored.
So you don’t like our ideas, huh Feige? That’s fine. This is the internet. We’ve got plenty more where those came from.
