Captain Marvel has added another big name to its star-studded cast!
According to Deadline, actress DeWanda Wise has officially signed to star opposite Brie Larson in Marvel’s upcoming Captain Marvel superhero flick.
Currently, details of Wise’s upcoming role are scarce. The only thing we know is that her part is being billed as a “co-starring role,” which leads us to believe that she’ll be playing a pretty big part in the story.
Netflix aficionados may already be familiar with Wise for her role in Spike Lee’s series She’s Gotta Have It. The actress stars as Nola Darling on the hit show, which made its grand debut via the online streaming platform in November of last year.
Wise and Larson aren’t the only actors currently attached to the upcoming project. In addition to the two ladies, we also know that Samuel L. Jackson has signed on to reprise his role as Nick Fury.
Meanwhile, back in November we learned that actor Jude Law had scored a huge role in the upcoming action film as well. Law will play Doctor Walter Lawson (also know as Mar-Vell), a man who eventually becomes a mentor to Carol Danvers (Larson) as she struggles to learn more about her newfound powers.
Finally, Ben Mendelsohn has been tapped to play the film’s big villain.
Marvel still hasn’t confirmed which villain Carol will be battling in the first film. Thanks to a big slip by Kevin Fiege at SDCC 2017, however, it’s pretty safe to say that Captain Marvel will be battling a race of shape-shifting aliens known as the Skrulls.
Helmed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel is set to fly into theaters on March 8, 2019.
