Captain Marvel has landed it’s newest star. DeWanda Wise has been confirmed to be playing a character opposite Brie Larson in the upcoming Marvel blockbuster.
Deadline says the star will be in the film alongside Brie Lason, Samuel L Jackson, Jude Law, and Ben Mendelsohn. Not much is know about what character Wise will be playing, but fans are already speculating who she could be playing but we do know a little bit of what could be in the film. All we know so far is that it is having the inclusion of the Kree and that it’s set in the 1990s. But fans are speculating that Wise could bring Monica Rambeau to life.
For those unfamiliar with Monica, she was created by Roger Stern and John Romita Jr., and she is one of Captain Marvel’s lesser-known inheritors. She made her debut in 1982, and she carried the heroic banner. She inherited her gifts while working in New Orleans as a captain at the harbor. She was given extra-dimensional powers when she tried to keep a weapon from being created, and Monica became a hero who operated under the name Captain Marvel.
During her tenure, Monica did some big projects as she joined the Avengers and even came to lead the team. Now, she may have lost her powers for a spell, but she got them back thanks to Quasar, and he recruited her for a team mission along with Carol Danvers, Black Bolt, and more.
But most recently, she worked under the name Spectrum and aided in the destruction of Earth-1610.
Now there is no word currently on what role Monica will be playing, but we will find out soon enough. But production starts this year, so all eyes will be on Atlanta to see what character Wise will be playing.
