So,we all know what pretty much EVERY other comic book/pop culture website and blogger thinks should be cast as Captain Marvel in Marvel Studios' first female led superhero film.
Yeah, you've heard them all... Katee Sackoff, Emily Blunt....and let's face it, pretty much everybody and their grandmother's cat wants it to be Natalie Dormer (who as Margaery Tyrell uses that sly smile of hers to, um, how do I put it...CHARM the underage new king in Game of Thrones), and while all of those are pretty great choices...are they really the only ones?!
I mean, let's face it. This is a very important movie. Probably even more important than the first Iron Man or Guardians of the Galaxy was, because female superhero movies have not done well in the past.
Let's face it...they have absolutely sucked! Catwoman, Supergirl, Elektra....yeah. Not a very good track record. And let's face it. We knew superheroes and space adventures could draw audiences if done right. We have nothing but proof that female superhero movies don't!
This is Marvel's biggest challenge ever. And while the film is slated for 2018, the internet has just gone insane with fan-casting of Carol Danvers. And with good reason, Carol's a great character with a rich comic book history.
So,since I've done this previously with a few of DC's heroes like Wonder Woman, Batman and most recently DC's former Captain Marvel, Shazam....let's try my first Marvel casting column...with a twist! Let's cast OTHER Carols! Possible casting choices that have been lost in the Sackoff/Dormer hullabaloo.
For this column, since I like to rate each choice, I will be rating each actress by her "Carol Calibre" from 1 to 5.
