Captain Marvel casts actor DeWanda Wise

She’s Gotta Have It’ Star De Wanda Wise Lands Role in ‘Captain Marvel’ HBR Media Team

After encountering the Kree hero, Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers was accidently subjected to otherworldly radiation that transformed her into a superhuman warrior. 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.

After Black Panther, I just want to time jump to March 8, 2019. Monica Rambeau was a beat cop who, after being bombarded by extra-dimensional energy, gained powers and became the superhero Captain Marvel, later taking on the mantles of Photon, Pulsar, and Spectrum. Calling herself Ms. Marvel, she established herself as one of Marvel's most powerful and prominent heroes as a sole heroine and as a member of the Avengers.

DeWanda Wise is about to have it all.

Captain Marvel will also star Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role as Nick Fury, and is said to take place in the 1990s, with a Skrull-based threat as the villain.


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. Their subsequent battle resulted in Danvers gaining her powers.

Let us know in the comments! Is Marvel looking to bring that dynamic to the big screen?

Everything is coming up roses for Wise, with a continuing series and major role in the Marvel's Captain Marvel feature. The first character that comes to mind is Monica Rambeau, the first female character to inhabit the Captain Marvel title, though she remained relatively removed from the original Captain, Mar-Vell.
