Good news folks, were only three years and four months away from seeing Marvel's first female-led superhero film! No, that honor will not go to Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. Marvel has chosen to bestow the honor onto Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel is a former air force pilot that can fly, runs at super-speed, is super strong, has invulnerability and fires off energy projectiles. She's basically Marvel's female version of Superman.
Who will play her? Fans have been championing Emily Blunt ("Edge Of Tomorrow"), Natalie Dormer ("Games Of Thrones"), Katee Sackhoff ("Power/Rangers") and Vikings star Katheryn Winnick. The latter got a big push when a fan created Captain Marvel fan-art using an image of Winnick. People like the look so much it went viral. You can see it by clicking here.
Movie Web recently interviewed Winnick, who discussed the piece of Captain Marvel fan-art, her interest in the role if it was offered to her and her potential competition for the part. Check it all out in the video below.
Marvel’s “Captain Marvel” will arrive in theaters July 6, 2018.
