CAPTAIN MARVEL Adds DeWANDA WISE (Could She Be Monica Rambeau?)

DeWanda Wise is a queen- and now officially a hero too

DeWanda Wise has been tapped into star in Disney-Marvel's "Captain Marvel".

The news of Wise's role comes after Netflix announced a second season of Spike Lee's 2017 reboot series of his film "She's Gotta Have It", so it looks like we'll be seeing more of the Maryland actress in the near future.

As for Monica Rambeau, she held the Captain Marvel mantle during her first appearance in The Amazing Spiderman #16 in 1982, but has come into her own and is now known as Photon or Spectrum.

Brie Larson is starring as the Marvel superhero in the film directed by duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Could Alexa be the next big thing in 2018? As such the company is already offering its Echo lineup in different form factors. It'll also spread availability beyond the US-only skills that the new system will ship with now, to other countries.

Fans are already speculating who Wise is playing, but it is hard to tell.

With Captain Marvel, she is as powerful a character as we've ever put in a movie. So could DeWanda Wise be playing Monica Rambeau? Now "co-star" is a vaguely loaded word - does that mean she will play the co-lead to Larson's Air Force pilot Carol Danvers? It's unlikely that she will take on the role of the movie's villain, with that part already relegated to Rogue One's Ben Mendelsohn.

Captain Marvel - Marvel's first film to center on a female hero - is set to open March 8, 2019. As a rising actor in the Hollywood system, Wise should be in great company for her first major blockbuster role. Her powers are off the charts, and when she's introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we've ever had.
