Maryland native DeWanda Wise to make Marvel movie debut in 'Captain Marvel'

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

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. It would be a huge statement of intent to cast a black female superhero alongside Brie Larson, proof that Marvel is dedicated to diversifying their films from here on out.

With Captain Marvel, she is as powerful a character as we've ever put in a movie.

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. While it is unknown who, precisely, Wise is playing in the film, it makes a lot of sense for her to play Monica Rambeau, the hero known as Spectrum.

Anti-triple talaq bill in RS tomorrow
Most parties are against the provision for jailing offenders - they say they don't want a civil matter to be criminalised. It would be tough for the government in the Upper House to pass the bill in its present form as BJP is in minority here.

Captain Marvel is the alter ego of an Air Force pilot named Carol Danvers. There is no word on what her role will be, but there has been some speculation about who it could be.

During her tenure, Monica did some big projects as she joined the Avengers and even came to lead the team. 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. Captain Marvel is set to have a short period of filming later this month before production kicks into full gear later this spring, so Marvel has been busy rounding out the cast.
