Captain Marvel Found?

So I guess my tweet-suggestion of Julia Roberts didn’t go anywhere, guys.

Marvel is said to be looking at Academy Award winner Brie Larson (Room) to fill the shoes of Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel.

See, here I was hoping they would make the character a little older so she could instantly becoming a leader of the pack, pull a Robert Downey Jr.

But no one did ask me.

Anyway. A search for a director to helm Captain Marvel – the story of an Air Force pilot whose DNA fuses with an alien’s during an accident, thus imbuing her with super-strength, energy projection, and flight – is ongoing.

The project, though, is pretty much ready to go behind the scenes, for a script has been completed, by two talented women, no less: Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman and Inside Out Oscar nomiee Meg LeFeuve. (Not that the writers’ gender should come as any type of a surprise....)
