But what would you call the movie?
Well if it weren't for that Alex Ross story about photographer Phil Sheldon, they could've called it "Marvels".
But they could still call it Ms Marvel. It would be a different kind of superhero movie where there's an already established hero (Mar-Vell) but it's really building towards the creation of the eventual heroine of the movie, Carol Danvers.
Or just call it Captain Marvel. Yes, it's a silly name, but it's catchy. It's no worse than Captain America or Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
Mar-Vell doesn't have to use that name for himself. It's just what the public call him... which they would do in real life if there really were a Captain Mar-Vell. It's like calling someone Superman or Captain America in real life (which happens... well, at least the latter). There could even be a tiny reference to the Shazam character, as if they were mocking Mar-Vell by comparing him to Batson.
Who's the villain for a "Mar-Vell" movie?
How about Thanos? He could lead into an Avengers sequel.
Or the Skrulls could be the villains.
