Fans are already speculating who Wise is playing, but it is hard to tell. In the comics, Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau share a love/love/hate relationship but hold a substantial amount of mutual respect for one another. The titular hero of "Captain Marvel" will be portrayed by Brie Larson, who will also take on the hero's alter-ego in Carol Danvers. 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. While some might speculate on it, one name immediately came to mind when she was cast: Monica Rambeau.
Wise's character has the potential to pull a Falcon in Ant-Man and cameo all around the Marvel movie universe. With the recent announcement that seven time Grammy victor Kendrick Lamar will be producing and curating the soundtrack, excitement is only building for this landmark film.
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will direct the project, scripted by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. If the filmmakers behind Captain Marvel are committed to make this a film exploring superhero mantles and the idea of legacy heroes, it would make a lot of sense for it to be the place where Marvel finally does something else that fans have been dreaming of: introducing the newest Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan.
It looks like Captain Marvel has landed its newest star. And Marvel isn't shy with making sure they populate each of their standalone movies with as many relevant members of a heroes' supporting cast as they can.
There is no question this will be Wise's biggest role to date.
