Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, is Marvel’s most powerful superhero and she’ll be back on the big screen in a new movie. Deadline reports that Marvel Studios’ has commissioned a script for a sequel to her origin story focused first film, which was also Marvel’s first film with a woman as the lead title character.
It’s our understanding that Brie Larson is signed to a multi-picture deal to play the Captain Marvel character in upcoming films. Her first film was technically “‘Avengers: Endgame,” which she filmed before her solo pic, even though the solo film hit theaters first.
“Captain Marvel” was no slouch at the box office pulling in a tidy $1.13 billion worldwide. It’s believed that Marvel Studios’ head Kevin Feige wants to use the Captain Marvel character as the new Captain America and build up a series of films with her and other characters along an over-arching storyline resulting in a big ensemble finale, similar to the Infinity War/Endgame movies.
Carol Danvers is imbued with powers on a cosmic scale, so I would also not be surprised if the story takes her in to deep space again where, perhaps, she encounters our favorite space faring Marvel Studios’ heroes – the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Deadline reports that Megan McDonnell, who is currently on the writing team behind the Disney+ Marvel series WandaVision, will be putting pen to paper to write the next script.
