Re: Capt. Marvel/Ms. Marvel Film? (Good idea or GREAT idea?)
I would prefer a thirty-something Mar-Vell as well. Someone who's not going to be so popular that it ends up being turned into a franchise with the unintended effect of preventing Ms Marvel's own turn in the spotlight.
I don't want someone like Bradley Cooper. Aaron Eckhart could work.
And i do think at least someone in the movie could call him Captain Marvel. Maybe ask where's Billy Batson too, just as a joke. I mean, if your name was John Soupman, don't you think your colleagues would make fun of you and call you Superman? Especially if you do something heroic - eg you're a cop.
