English actress Lashana Lynch (“Still Star-Crossed,” “Brotherhood”) is set to replace DeWanda Wise in the upcoming “Captain Marvel” movie at Marvel Studios.
Wise’s departure from the MCU was announced yesterday and was said to be due to scheduling conflicts with the Netflix series “She’s Gotta Have It”. Specifics of the character are still unknown.
Brie Larson stars as the title hero, an Air Force pilot in the early 1990s who becomes a galactic superhero after being exposed to malfunctioning Kree technology. Samuel L. Jackson, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn and Jude Law co-star.
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are directing the film from a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. Kevin Feige produces the film which opens March next year.
