Marvel will announce Captain Marvel cast & director this summer

04.12.2016

Captain Marvel Banner

Yesterday Kevin Feige brought us up to speed on INHUMANS and Ryan Coogler's BLACK PANTHER, and during a conversation with Fandango at the CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR press day, the Marvel Studios head also gave an update on another Phase 3 film: CAPTAIN MARVEL. Feige tells the site that the director and the cast of Marvel's first female-led comic book movie will probably be announced before the end of this summer.

I think we’ll be announcing a filmmaker in the next month or two, and probably some cast members later in the summer, at the end of the summer.

Feige went on to say that the movie will focus on “Carol Danvers and that journey to being Captain Marvel," and he also said that although Marvel is planning on producing additional solo female superhero films, they're a little busy right now with their Phase 3 flicks.

Yes, for sure, I think [Black] Widow at some point would be great. But when you start talking about things that are now four/five years away…sometimes we do that. Dr. Strange has been talked about for ten years. But we’re focused on the next nine movies, which is a lot, between now and 2019.

Who would you like to see direct and star in CAPTAIN MARVEL?

CAPTAIN MARVEL will hit theaters on March 8, 2019.

Emily Blunt!.. If she doesn't want to do it, which I think I read somewhere, then they need to pick my other girl, who was born for the role.. Yvonne Strahovski!

Katheryn Winnick

Glad to see she's a popular choice on this board. Let me preface by saying that Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron are probably my two favorite actresses and are now proven action stars, but I prefer someone with a lower profile who is equally hot and talented and looking to break out on the big screen, and Winnick fits the bill perfectly. Also, Winnick may be close to 40, but I swear she looks like she's only in her mid to late 20s. She actually looks quite a few years younger than Blunt, even

Laura Vandervoort and Teresa Palmer have also been suggested. Ironically, I was always hoping one of those two would become the big screen Supergirl (which I know has close to zilch chance of happening at this point), which is probably why I still prefer Winnick over either of them at this point, even though they would also be great choices.

Younger choices for Captain Marvel...

All of these potential actresses would need to go blonde: Shailene Woodley, Nicola Peltz, Sara Paxton, Amanda Seyfried, Teresa Palmer, Elisha Cuthbert, Evan Rachel Wood. Although Theron, Winnick, and Chastain are all younger than RDJ was when he became Iron Man. Just saying - NONE of those three are too old.

Charlize Theron is 40, Katheryn Winnick will be 39 this year, and Jessica Chastain is 39.

They're all great actresses, but I suspect Marvel will skew younger for the role. I could see Marvel going with Brie Larson if they want a proven actress. Laura Vandervoort (she also has a karate black belt), Adrienne Palicki, Alice Eve would also be solid choices. I like Emily Blunt as well.

Katheryn Winnick is perfect. Has proven to be a strong woman, is a black belt in real life, can act, and has the look for the character.

Would love for Emily Blunt to get the gig

She was Marvel's first pick for both Black Widow and Peggy Carter, so that are clearly fans, and she's since proven herself in action roles. She's also probably just the right level of famous to help launch a relatively unknown character into a franchise. Also, I agree with The Soloist's comment about Whedon, his days with Marvel are done, but man he would have been a good pick for this one.

Yup that is exactly who I want. The woman isn't a waif, has the look and is actually a black belt so can fight.

Emily Blunt or Jessica Chastain for Captain Marvel.

And I would have loved to have seen Josh Whedon write and direct Captain Marvel, or hell the proposed solo Black Widow film since he has done a great job of writing strong female characters.

Can we just stop talking about Black Widow?

why is this a movie that needs to happen at this point? She's been in 10 movies, she has no real powers, and we've touched on her backstory. They're making spectacle movies clearing half a bil easily each time out, who's running to watch a Black Widow movie? They're working in the female heroes, we don't need to whine about diversity anymore. that movie should never see the light of day. ... carry on.

March 8th huh.. and thats a what if at this point too. That doesn't even fit her in the Infinity War movie. Unless they introduce her before then, which can happen like Black Panther. Hope this pans out for this character.

Theron would be a perfect pick coming off the heels of Fury Road, but since I'm guessing they're going to to want Captain Marvel, Black Panther and Dr. Strange to more or less be the staples for Phase 4 and beyond the way that Cap, Thor and Iron Man have been the staples for phases 1-3, I could see them wanting to cast someone a little younger. I mean I'm sure Theron will still be fit and hot at 50, but that seems like pretty typical studio exec logic.

This would make for a great movie. But honestly, I think Marvel is full of shit when it comes to making female-led superhero movies. You can tell they made Agent Carter as a means to appease their detractors for not producing any female-led material in the MCU. They've been throwing out a Black Widow-centric movie for years now with no evidence of even attempting to make it happen. They're currently in phase 3, focusing on an additional 9 movies and still couldn't find the time to slot in a

By the end of 2019 they will have produced 22 movies in 11 years, and they couldn't squeeze that Black Widow solo movie in there somewhere. I enjoy the MCU movies, but I call bullshit on Kevin Feige's desire to make any female-led superhero movies.

I've been a big MCU Black Widow fan and would welcome a 'solo' movie but lets face it, how many 'solo' movies do Marvel produce of late? The third Thor movie will have Hulk, Winter Soldier, for me the best thing by far in the MCU had Widow in a great and prominent role. The third Captain America movie? Don't let the fact the the movie title lacks the female's superhero name misguide you on this. Sure, they can be faulted for not offering us more female heroes in the MCU but as far as Widow

Don't let the fact the the movie title lacks the female's superhero name misguide you on this. Sure, they can be faulted for not offering us more female heroes in the MCU but as far as Widow goes, her roles got bigger with each movie appearance.

As far as the Marvel TV-verse goes, you mention Carter but then leave out JJ and that Shield also has prominent female characters with Daisy more or less being at the forefront of that show these days.

They didn't make Agent Carter just so they could appease their detractors. They saw a popular character that people liked and could be made in a nice little miniseries. That's the reason they made Agent Carter. And yeah, like Riz-man said, you forgot Jessica Jones, Daisy and the rumoured Mockingbird upcoming series.
