CAPTAIN MARVEL News: Lashana Lynch To Replace DeWanda Wise


Marvel Studios is in talks with Lashana Lynch after DeWanda Wise left the film due to schedule conflict.

Wise is busy filming Netflix show She’s Gotta Have It so British actress Lashana Lynch is being eyed to step in as a replacement. Captain Marvel follows Air Force Pilot Carol Danvers who debuted in the Marvel comics in 1968 as a human companion to the original Captain Marvel. Not much is known about the film’s plot other than it will take place in the ’90s before other MCU films, with the green-skinned extraterrestrial humanoid Skrulls as the main villains.

Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn and Gemma Chan co-star in the film, which opens theaters on March 8, 2019.

Lynch is known for starring in Still Star-Crossed which was cancelled on ABC in its first season.
