At Dragon Con in Atlanta this weekend, director James Gunn put the kibosh on any nascent speculation that Captain Marvel, aka Carole Danvers, might appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. According to Collider, Gunn said that he would be steering clear of “earthlings” and will be keeping the focus on Star-Lord. He does plan to include more female characters from the Guardians side of Marvel comics, hopefully as more than just Peter Quills’ bedmates.
At a separate convention this weekend, Fan Expo Canada in Bermuda (just kidding, it was in Toronto), Stan Lee dropped some major Marvel news when someone asked him about whether Marvel has any plans for a Black Widow movie. CBR quotes him as saying, “The chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and the Black Panther, and there are others I am not allowed to talk about.” Psst. Stan. I don’t think you were supposed to talk about the Black Panther thing… But since you did, great news!
Let's get the casting rumor mill started. Who do you think should play Black Panther?
