Charlize Theron may be Captain Marvel – Angelina Jolie to direct

Charlize TheronCharlize Theron is reportedly close to signing on to become Captain Marvel. Coming off a masterful performance in Mad Max: Fury Road, the 39-year-old actress is in negotiations to star as Marvel Studios’ first female lead in a superhero film.

Since Captain Marvel was announced last year, Charlize Theron has been the fans’ choice to be cast in the role. This will be the first female superhero film since 1984’s Supergirl, which many have, for good reason, forgotten about.  

Captain Marvel is the story of a woman who receives super powers after an encounter with the alien Kree Empire. Captain Marvel is a big part of Marvel’s Phase Three plans, as she will also appear in Avengers: Infinity War with potential cameos in several other superhero movies.

There are several versions of Captain Marvel but it is strongly believed that the character will in fact be Carol Danvers. Her powers include superhuman strength, speed, stamina, endurance, bursts of raw energy, a sixth sense and the ability to breathe in space. She is very powerful and will likely be critical in taking down Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War Part II.

Angelina Jolie is close to signing on to direct the film. Her signing depends on Charlize Theron accepting the role. Angelina has previously directed the Oscar-nominated feature Unbroken

    She’d be good I think, but I would really love to see Katie Sackhoff play Captain Marvel. I think she could pull of the military attitude for the character.

    What’s with all these well known celebrities wanting to act as Superhero’s in a Marvel action movie. I thought these actors were more interested in their acting craft and wanted to show themselves as real actors in serious roles.

    why did the defunct Fawcett Comics of the 1940s lose the original name of Captain Marvel, who says magic word of SHAZAM to become Billy Batson? I really wish that Superman clasped Captain Marvel’s hand and brought him into DC Comics Universe earlier, so that Cap wouldn’t lose his original name! How I miss Cap’s sister, Mary Marvel and Cap’s friend, Captain Marvel Junior! All three of them form the MARVEL FAMILY!
