You're off to a good start. The cast I'd have:
- Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel II - Our dark horse star, knows how to be a by the book her, her new relationship forces her to break that mold
- Mar-Vell/Captain Marvel I - Love Interest, classic alien hero, but deconstructed, since he's dying.
- Michael "Ace" Rossi - Danvers' old flying buddy, Mar-Vell's rival love interest, rogueish in a bad way
- Nick Fury or Hawkeye or Black Widow or Maria Hill or Falcon or Coulson- SHIELD personnel, MCU expository through line. May also be rival/obstructive at some point.
- Ronan The Accuser - Either the main villain or the cliffhanger villain.
- Yon-Rogg - Mar-Vell's professional rival who most viciously reacts to Mar-Vell's betrayal.
- Sentry 459 - Technically a character, albeit, not one with an actor per se
She doesn't have a 'homegirl' character but Widow or Maria Hill could technically play that kind of role for her, and perhaps they should. You could bring in Abigail Brand for that purpose too if you like, that might be interesting.
