Sorry Mar-Vell Fans, Looks Like Carol is Captain Marvel In The Movie Universe
Debuting at this weekend's Comic-Con is the Marvel Studios one shot short film, Agent Carter.
The short stars Hayley Atwell reprising as Agent Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger which could very well be the first of many to come.
EW.com asked Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito just that, with the producer on the likes of The Avengers and Iron Man 3 offering up that other Marvel comics characters have been thought about.
Loki is mentioned as being one as is a young Nick Fury with Dum Dum Dugan, and Black Panther.
D'Esposito also mentions Carol Danvers, and if you think Marvel Studios isn't aware of the Marvel Comics, you can guess again as the co-pres refers to her as Captain Marvel.
Let’s just say I knew I was going to direct Captain Marvel [as a feature], right? And we knew who was going to play her. That would make it easy to introduce her first in a One-Shot. But that’s a plan that requires a lot of coordination. And I don’t know if really we … if I’ve been thinking that far ahead. It’s difficult enough to find something that’s enjoyable, that we can tell with the budget limitations and in the time we have. Introducing a lot of complicated variables might weaken that.
Marvel Cosmic fans obviously know that Danvers recently took on the title "Captain Marvel" along with her new series, which isn't selling well at all (under 20K); however, for some reason, Marvel is still keeping it around.
Carol Danvers has been long time rumored to be appearing in the Marvel Studios movies and even The Avengers 2. We're guessing as "Captain Marvel."
Let's just hope we don't hear one of the execs refer to Sam Alexander as Nova.
