Default Re: Who should play Ms. Marvel if she gets her own film?

Kristen Bell? Seriously? I love her but she's a tiny pixie. Which Carol Danvers most certainly is not.

Normally I'm against fan-favorite TV actors for these kinds of roles because there are usually far more qualified film actors out there, but I actually like the idea of a TV actress as Carol because then she (and Mar-Vell) could blend into the other MCU properties (including possibly Agents of SHIELD) as a pilot first, and Mar-Vell as Dr. Lawson, before they ever get a showcase of their own. I just feel like their story and relationship would be best-served over a longer period than just a movie. Then when Mar-Vell's true identity is revealed and Yon-Rogg enters the picture, that's when their movie would happen.

So with that preferred approach in mind, the TV actresses I like for it are Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, Dexter), Katee Sackhoff (BSG) and Katheryn Winnick (Vikings).

Younger than 30? I seriously doubt they'd consider that to be too old.
