Marvel hoping to get Charlize Theron on board as Captain Marvel?

June 1st, 2015 by Marc Comments


Has Mad Max made Marvel look closely at Charlize Theron for the role of Captain Marvel?

Well, maybe…

Rumours are suggesting that after Unbroken, Theron and director Angeline Jolie (the current favourite to direct Captain Marvel) have become good friends and while Marvel are after Jolie for the gig, the addition of Theron would almost definitely bring Jolie on board.

According to Comicbook: “Marvel has been courting Angie to direct the project and Charlize is a clear fan favourite for the starring role… If Charlize were to get the part, Angie would almost certainly sign on to work with her.”

Apparently Theron’s performance in Mad Max: Fury Road as Furiosa has been getting her noticed in all sorts of places (deservedly so, she kicked ass) and Marvel is one of them.

So what do you all think? Would Theron be a suitable Carol Danvers AKA Captain America? Let us know…

Captain Marvel is scheduled to open in theaters November 2, 2018.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
