Adjust Comment Print

After exciting renewal news from Netflix for her series, She's Gotta Have It, she'll also be joining the Marvel Extended Universe in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, and Ben Mendelsohn. She is now fresh off a role in She's Gotta Have It on Netflix, but no word on who she is playing is available at this time. 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.

Marvel previously announced that Captain Marvel would be taking on powerful alien race The Skrulls who are prominent figures in the pages of Marvel comics. A police lieutenant from New Orleans, she possesses the ability to transform herself into any form of energy. While some might speculate on it, one name immediately came to mind when she was cast: Monica Rambeau.

So far, there is no word on whether Monica will factor into Captain Marvel, but fans will find out soon enough.

This, represents a total of 401 435 candidates, who had passed the 2017 NSC examinations. Just over 28% of pupils achieved a pass that will allow them to go to university.

It doesn't just make sense story-wise, but also on a business level.

Wise's character has the potential to pull a Falcon in Ant-Man and cameo all around the Marvel movie universe. When the trailer dropped it garnered 89 million views in 24 hours, making it (at the time) the third most popular MCU trailer after only Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok. The film, which is set in the 1990s, will follow Larson as Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, who later becomes the super-powered Captain Marvel after her DNA is fused with an alien's after an accident. Monica would be a fantastic addition to the big screen world of Marvel, as well as potentially opening the door for another fan fave to join the team.
