Bryce Dallas Howard Wants To Play Captain Marvel


The woman who played Gwen Stacy has voiced her interest in taking on the role of Carol Danvers in the forthcoming Marvel Studios adaptation of Captain Marvel.

No, not Emma Stone. The other Gwen Stacy. From Spider-Man 3.

That's right, Jurassic World star and Ron Howard's daughter Bryce Dallas Howard is interested in taking on the biggest female superhero lead since Wonder Woman, she told CinemaBlend in a new interview.

"Oh my God, will you write that? Will you write that please?" Howard told reporter Eric Eisenberg after he told her he felt she could be a fit for the character. "Yes, let’s start a campaign now. That would be rad. Those movies are so fantastic, because talk about just these incredibly drawn characters! That’s the joy of the comics, is that you fall in love with these characters and it’s who they are that carries you from journey to journey to journey… it’s not just about set pieces. It’s really about who these people are, and so, yes, I just would love to be in a Marvel film."

Of course, she just starred in the movie that opened at just a touch less than Marvel's The Avengers on the all-time box office charts. So she's certainly got that going for her, in terms of marketability...!
