SGHI_104_Unit_00503R

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. She is considered the first Captain Marvel.

Not much is known about the main plot of "Captain Marvel", but the film will be directed by Anna Bodeck and Ryan Fleck, who is known for directing "It's Kind of a Funny Story" and "Half Nelson", respectively.

Captain Marvel is slated to arrive in theaters on March 8, 2019. Monica Rambeau was a beat cop who, after being bombarded by extra-dimensional energy, gained powers and became the superhero Captain Marvel, later taking on the mantles of Photon, Pulsar, and Spectrum. Other cast members include Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, and Jude Law. It would be great to see one of the most prominent black female heroes in the Marvel Universe get a chance to show up on the silver screen.

WARNING GRAPHIC LANGUAGE: ESPN's Katie Nolan calls Donald Trump a 'stupid person
During an appearance on Viceland's " Desus & Mero", Nolan called President Donald Trump a "f*cking stupid person". Whether Nolan faces any punishment remains to be seen and ESPN declined comment to Sporting News .

DeWanda Wise is the latest star to join the cast of "Captain Marvel". So I'm going to put my money (and my hopes) on Monica Rambeau.

Let us know in the comments!

We're already getting Carol Danvers' origin in this movie, so it wouldn't be a stretch for someone else to get powers by the film's end, right? 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. 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.
