Could Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron end up starring in an Angelina Jolie-directed Captain Marvel film for Marvel Studios?
Theron and Jolie (Unbroken) have reportedly bonded since they were introduced to each other via their significant others: Sean Penn and Brad Pitt. Their friendship is going so well that there is talk of them teaming up on a Marvel film together.
"Marvel has been courting Angie to direct the project and Charlize is a clear fan favourite for the starring role," a source told US OK! magazine (via Washington Post). "If Charlize were to get the part, Angie would almost certainly sign on to work with her."
Theron has earned plenty of praise for her kick-butt performance as 'Furiousa' in George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road. Many have suggested her for the role of Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, an ex-Air Force pilot that acquires cosmic super powers.
Captain Marvel is scheduled to open in theaters November 2, 2018. The script is being written by Nicole Perlman and Megan LeFauve.
