“Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” scene stealer Rebecca Ferguson has reportedly emerged at the top of the list of Marvel Studios candidates to play Captain Marvel in the character’s solo film says Heroic Hollywood.
Ferguson, who was also recently on the shortlist for the part of Bella Donna in the Channing Tatum-led “Gambit” film, took herself out of the running for that project due to her commitments to Tate Taylor’s “The Girl on the Train.”
Here, if she were to get the gig, she would play Carol Danvers in the film. It’s a role her ‘Girl’ co-star Emily Blunt has also been closely linked to in recent months.
Nicole Perlman and Megan LeFauve are penning the script for what is Marvel Studios’ first female-led superhero film which is expected to begin filming late next year for a November 2018 release.
