Rebecca Ferguson, who recently appeared in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, is rumored to be the top contender for Marvel’s upcoming female superhero film – Captain Marvel. With a release date of November 2, 2018, we expect more news about the movie to come our way soon.
The fact that fans are already aware as to who would don the role of Doctor Strange and Black Panther in the upcoming solo films, brings us to the question of who will play the character of Carol Danvers on the big screen. Rumors going around suggest that Rebecca Ferguson may well be the top contender for the same, however, these may simply be a speculation on part of eager fans.
Though Captain Marvel doesn’t begin shooting until 2017, Marvel may well introduce the character in any of the previous films, perhaps as a military officer, similar to her introduction in the comic books.
Having said that, she can also serve as a great character to bridge elements of Marvel’s Earth-based stories with the cosmic storyline – Guardians of the Galaxy.
