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

Same here. The alien infiltration & horror angle might work, though.

I went back on forth on whether to include that. If there are romantic undercurrents, having a subplot with Mar-Vell in a Betty and Veronica situation might create drama. Not completely necessary, though, and it seems like in Thor:TDW they shied away from that angle (its sort of there in the subtext).

Also, here's a great potential line, after she learns he's a Kree, as they're getting to know each other.

Carol: "So, Mar-Vell, what about you? Do you have any family? Is there a Miss Mar-Vell somewhere waiting for you?"
