Re: Capt. Marvel/Ms. Marvel Film? (Good idea or GREAT idea?)

Personally speaking, I want Ms. Marvel to have her own trilogy of movies, not a hand-me-down trilogy after Mar-Vell hogged one of the movies.
I don't think a Captain Marvel film would be anymore likely to bomb than a Ms. Marvel film, both of them are probably D listers when it comes to the general audience. Granted Ms. Marvel is significantly more popular in the comic book world especially in the last few years, but that doesn't necessarily mean it would translate over into the movie world.
I say let the first film be a Captain Marvel film with him dying at the end and showing Carol Denvers DNA combined with his Kree DNA. Then have her take up the Marvel mantle at the beginning of the sequel film (or very end of the 1st) and from then on out it could be a Ms. Marvel story.
