Emily Blunt may star in ‘Captain Marvel’

Los Angeles, Aug 3 (IANS) Actress Emily Blunt will reportedly star as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in the upcoming female-led superhero movie.

A new rumour regarding “Captain Marvel” has surfaced. Blunt is rumoured to play the title character in the upcoming movie, reports aceshowbiz.com.

In the latest “Meet the Movie Press” episode, co-host El Mayimbe revealed that the 32-year-old star would be a likely candidate to take the role of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel.

Back in April, a report surfaced that the studio wanted Charlize Theron to play the lead female character. However, there has been no confirmation about the casting as of now.

Danvers first debuted in 1968’s “Marvel Super-Heroes”. She was a US Air Force security chief who is transformed into Captain Marvel following an explosion.

Since there hasn’t been any director attached to the project, it seems like the makers will look for a director first before they start their casting search.

In February, a source suggested that people behind the female-led superhero movie eyed Angelina Jolie to helm “Captain Marvel”. They reportedly offered her $20 million for the directing job.

Kevin Feige will produce the movie while Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve are writing the script.

“Captain Marvel” is slated for a release in the US on November 2, 2018.
