DeWanda Wise joins Captain Marvel

DeWanda Wise joins Captain Marvel

With Captain Marvel also marking the first MCU movie directed by a female, the cast so far had yet to add any other female roles. The film, which is set in the 1990s, will follow Larson as Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, who later becomes the super-powered Captain Marvel after her DNA is fused with an alien's after an accident.

Captain Marvel will open a little over a year from now, on March 8th, 2019. Wise is playing Monica Rambeau, the third character (in Marvel Comics, we're not talking about the fella who says "Shazam" over at DC) to hold the name?

Marvel previously announced that Captain Marvel would be taking on powerful alien race The Skrulls who are prominent figures in the pages of Marvel comics.

The confrontation, though, has established a close relationship between Carol and Monica, a relationship that carried over to them becoming teammates in the newly reformed Ultimates following Secret Wars.

She's fought alongside some of Marvel's greatest heroes and was a longtime member of the Avengers, eventually becoming their leader after being chosen by Avengers founder Janet Van Dyne. It's unlikely that she will take on the role of the movie's villain, with that part already relegated to Rogue One's Ben Mendelsohn. Rising out of relative obscurity to star in Lee's Netflix series, she now joins an elite group of movie actors to land the goldmine that is the Marvel Universe. Marvel Studios is gearing up for the start of production on their first female led film.

Fans are already speculating who Wise is playing, but it is hard to tell. The full schedule of Marvel superhero movies can be found here.

It looks like Captain Marvel has landed its newest star.
