  • 'Captain Marvel' Casts 'She's Gotta Have It' Star DeWanda Wise

Ever since Marvel announced that Carol Danvers' Captain Marvel would be leading her own movie over three years ago, fans have been hoping and dreaming and wishing and praying that the film might also see the cinematic debut of another badass female heroine who once held the mantle of Captain Marvel. Rising out of relative obscurity to star in Lee's Netflix series, she now joins an elite group of movie actors to land the goldmine that is the Marvel Universe. Captain Marvel is set to have a short period of filming later this month before production kicks into full gear later this spring, so Marvel has been busy rounding out the cast.

Marvel is owned by Disney, parent company of ABC News. Samuel L. Jackson, who has been in various films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is also in the cast alongside Jude Law.

DeWanda Wise is about to have it all.

Though their paths rarely cross in the comics, we know that the MCU is built from concepts taken from Marvel rather than direct storylines.

UN Security Council rebuffs the United States over Iran protests
America's ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said the meeting showed Iran that "the world will be watching" its actions. Trump's administration has denied having any hand in the demonstrations, saying they arose completely spontaneously.

While it has not been confirmed who Mendelsohn will play, Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently teased that the shape-shifting alien group known as the Skrulls would feature in "Captain Marvel". The full schedule of Marvel superhero movies can be found here. The first character that comes to mind is Monica Rambeau, the first female character to inhabit the Captain Marvel title, though she remained relatively removed from the original Captain, Mar-Vell.

DeWanda Wise is having a great ride as of late.

There is no question this will be Wise's biggest role to date.
