Captain Marvel is set to be the first female driven Marvel film since the Marvel Cinematic Universe was established back in ’08 and while the movie isn’t due out until 2018, fans have already begun speculating on who will be playing the lead role in the film. Several rumors have already begun to circulate the web and even UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey has expressed interest in playing the character.
It appears that Marvel may already have a frontrunner for the titular role, as according to Heroic Hollywood star of ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation‘ Rebecca Fergusson is currently at the top of Marvel Studios’ list of contenders.
Captain Marvel will follow Air Force pilot Carol Danvers who develops the powers of flight, superhuman strength and energy projection/absorption after an accident that infuses her with Kree DNA. The movie is slated for release on November 2, 2018.
