Default Monica Rambeau

Sorry if this is a thread somewhere but who would you like to see cast as Monica Rambeau?

Which name should they use?
Which hairstyle?

I always liked the name Photon for her. As for who could play the part? I'l have to give that some thought.

Would Captain Marvel be confusing though if they use Carol Danvers?

Also, I see we like the fro. I actually like a shorter hair version, though the fro would be fun.

I like Kylie Bunbury if they go for a younger version.

Cast Who:

Naomie Harris




Moneypenny's (Skyfall) personality, Calypso's (Pirates of the Carribean) attitude, Ninja Assassin sidekick girl's accent, character arc a mix of all three. Beautiful talented marketable and yet very affordable up and coming actress. Zoe Saldana and Rosario Dawson are already cast in the MCU. Naomie's the best choice. If Scandal ends Kerry Washington could do a bang-up job too.

Which name:

Spectrum

It's uniquely hers, the most accurate to her powerset, and it's her current comics codename.

Which hairstyle

That's a dumb question for a superhero. What facial hair for Tony Stark? What about, y'know... her costume!?

Which Look/Costume



Current white and black high-contrast costume with the short curly twisty things is my preference. They also may want to consider doing something new if they tie her in with Mar-Vell and sort of skip around Carol (not likely).




Other Notes:

Supporting Cast:
Derek Freeman, CIA Love Interest #1
Patsy Walker, Personal Trainer/Roommate
Marcus Daniels/Blackout, Deadly energy consuming monster chasing her
Frank and Maria Rambeau, Parents, Comic Relief
Andre LeClare, Conflicted scientist, Love Interest #2
Erneto Ramirez, Caribbean Dictator, Mastermind villain with extradimensional energy stuffs that can take out any target, trafficks people to make it happen

Sub Genre: Cop/Detective/Police Drama with Silver Age-y Superhero stylings

Also, I need to see something like this at some point:

Excellent stuff. The hairstyle question was meant to be lighthearted. Though her hair is different enough at times that I actually think people do have a preference.

Then for Odin's sake, don't use Carol Danvers!

And Tracy Ifeachor would be my dream cast

I've come to appreciate her current look:





And I have said in various threads that if the character ever makes an appearance in an MCU film or tv series, I hope they cast Nicole Beharie:

I really like Beharie. Would love to see her in some spandex!

I mean, y'know, heroically...

So, one challenge with bringing Monica to the screen is that you kinda have to nerf her... considerably. Her powerset is just entirely to monstrous for much of anything to cause her a problem.

I don't know, I'd say the only thing you really need to do is drop the superspeed. Everything else can be handled by appropriate choice of villainous opposition, and some clever application of counter-phlebotinum ( reflective surfaces vs visible light, faraday cages vs electromagnetic waves, lead vs gamma rays, etc ).
