Rumor Has It 'Captain Marvel' Has Been Cast -- Let's Speculate!

Today, rumors are a-flying that not only has Captain Marvel been cast, but we will see her very very soon.

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.

If the embed made that too tiny for your delicate eyes, here’s the gist: the role of Captain Marvel has been cast and is being kept top secret. Also, Kelly Sue DeConnick wants a stab at the screenplay, but that may not happen as they want someone “established” which likely means established screenwriter, not just comics. But we WILL see her in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

So who are we thinking, people?

Katee Sackhoff


As a rule, we put Sackhoff on every list like this we do, as does the entire internet. But I feel like we’re trying to make Katee happen while Hollywood is not on board.

Gillian Jacobs


Gillian Jacobs is my personal project. She WILL be a huge star. I will see to it personally. You know. With all my power. (I have no power.)

Natalie Dormer


Calm down, pervs. I’ve read your comments. You all need cold showers. That said, Dormer is perfection in all ways for all things and I would love to see her bring the funny with the strong and sassy.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw


Y’ALL. She would be amazing. And then they should do some crossover with Fantastic Four so she can make out with Miles Teller again because that gave me feelings.

Leave your pick in the comments.
