'She's Gotta Have It' Star DeWanda Wise Joins 'Captain Marvel'

'She's Gotta Have It' Star DeWanda Wise Joins 'Captain Marvel'

Deadline reports that Wise has signed on to join the upcoming Marvel Studios movie in a "plum role" opposite Brie Larson's Carol Danvers, but they make no mention of which character she'll be playing. So I'm going to put my money (and my hopes) on Monica Rambeau.

In addition to Larson and Wise, the film also stars Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and another Star Wars veteran, Samuel L. Jackson, who will reprise his Marvel Cinematic Universe role as Nick Fury. Rambeau's powers to shift between energy wavelengths and fly at near light speed would make her an exciting prospect in an all-out outer space romp, a flawless companion or even mentor to a burgeoning hero like Carol.

So far, there is no word on whether Monica will factor into Captain Marvel, but fans will find out soon enough. The film is slated for a March 2019 release-date, with Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck assuming the role of director. What we also know is that Captain Marvel's origin is different from the comics, but by how much remains to be seen. As of now, excluding Black Panther, Wise will be one of the only non-alien women of color in the MCU.

It's highly possible that Wise will play Rambeau in a nod to the history of Captain Marvel's title as well as offer a second female lead in Marvel's first solo female superhero movie. 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.
