Earlier than Avengers four wraps up each the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Section Three, the comedian guide franchise will make a journey again to the 1990s for Captain Marvel. Though Brie Larson was introduced to play Carol Danvers again on the 2016 San Diego Comedian-Con, it is solely been during the last half yr that we have heard who can be making up Captain Marvel‘s supporting solid. The newest title to be thrown into the combo is She’s Gotta Have It star DeWanda Clever.
In accordance with THR, DeWanda Clever has joined Captain Marvel in a supporting function, although no particulars about her character had been revealed. DeWanda Clever is at present finest identified for starring on the Netflix sequence She’s Gotta Have It (based mostly on Spike Lee’s 1986 movie of the identical title), and her different credit embrace starring on the Fox occasion sequence Photographs Fired and recurring on the short-lived WGN sequence Underground.
Though we at present haven’t any data to work off of relating to who DeWanda Clever is enjoying in Captain Marvel, provided that the actress may have an essential presence somewhat than simply be a minor participant, I think that she can be enjoying Monica Rambeau within the film. Launched to the comics in 1982’s The Superb Spider-Man Annual #16, Monica was uncovered to further dimensional power whereas she was serving within the New Orleans Harbor Patrol, and now having the ability to rework herself into any sort of power, she took on the Captain Marvel mantle.

Monica can also be shut buddies with Carol Danvers, so if she does present up within the Captain Marvel film, whereas there is not any assure that we’d see her additionally achieve superpowers, ideally she would even have the identical sort of relationship with the eponymous protagonist.
Together with DeWanda Clever and Brie Larson, Captain Marvel‘s confirmed foremost solid additionally consists of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the primary antagonist (presumably Yon-Rogg). Jude Law was additionally reported to be in negotiations to play Dr. Walter Lawson, higher generally known as Mar-Vell. Captain Marvel will see Carol Danvers acquiring her particular skills and battling the shapeshifting Skrulls a bit of over a decade earlier than the trendy day MCU kicked off with Iron Man. Whereas we do not know but how Captain Marvel will play out, Larson is already confirmed to reprise Carol in Avengers 4 a number of months later.
