It seems this year so far the only scooper keeping the rumor mill afloat has been Latino Review's El Mayimbe. Taking a break from his constant stream of Suicide Squad revelations he's back with another Instagram bomb this time involving Marvel's planned Captain Marvel movie. Not only has the lead role been cast but she'll also cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
No director has been chosen, but an established screenwriter is being sought. Some of the more popular fancasting choices for Danvers have included actresses Katie Sackhoff, Katheryn Winnick, and Emily Blunt.
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1. Captain Marvel opens November 8, 2018.
RT! HOT #MARVEL #RUMOR ABOUT #CAPTAINMARVEL #SPOILER Apparently, from what I'm being told, the rumor is that the studio has cast the role of Carol Danvers & keeping it top secret. I'm also being told we will first see her in #AVENGERS #AgeofUltron as originally written in previous drafts of the screenplay. In terms of the standalone film, the Marvel brain trust has blocked out the plot & story with the intention of bringing an established writer to write the script. Comic writer Kelly Sue DeConnick wanted to take a crack at writing the screenplay but I'm not sure if she got the gig. Also, I'm told legendary comic writer Jim Starlin, who has a rich history with Captain Marvel is aboard the project as a consultant. All of the above is #UNCONFIRMED so take with grain of salt until further notice but it's within the realm of plausibility.
