Discussion in 'The Avengers Sequels' started by DrCosmic, Feb 14, 2012.
Idk. When I think of marvel...in terms of with a title name.... I think of mar vell.
I like the idea of a Captain Marvel/Ms. Marvel movie. It would be a great opportunity to set up Ms. Marvel in an Avengers sequel (potentially).
Though I'd like the focus to be Ms. Marvel's character, I'd like to see it do a good interpretation of Captain Marvel before he hands off the mantle to Ms. Marvel. Though I'm not sure whether he should die or not, just that she should be the main hero by the end of the film.
I'd like both, but I really would want Ms. Marvel. You'd have to have a really strong woman playing her though (in terms of personality).
Although I support women in comic book movies, Ms Marvel doesn't seem quite right. Let her develop in an Avengers film (or several films) first.
There's other cool superheroines I would rather see first like more Black Widow, Scarlet Witch and Medusa of the Inhumans.
I don't know. Scarlet Witch and Medusa feel like incredibly left field ideas and less likely to get a spin off comic as much as say Widow or Marvel in the comics let alone the MCU (especially Medusa). Widow has already been in IM2 and Avengers that I'm not personally bothered about a solo for her right now.
Ms. Marvel I feel at least represents something that the MCU isn't currently offering and adds another potential strong female character for the Avengers.
I don't deny that she would make a wonderful addition to the Avengers sequel but the fact is, she doesn't have much of a supporting cast or any really famous stories to be a part of (besides that infamous one about Immortus). It would be incredibly difficult for her to maintain a story.
Wouldn't a story revolving around Captain Marvel and the coming of the Kree be a pretty important and famous story? You could have Ronan the Accuser, Sentry-459...
And it could lead into a Kree-Skrull War movie for an Avengers sequel! Just a thought. I actually didn't read those books.
Take aspects from Mar-Vell's origin and A:EMH and you get a cool Ms.Marvel solo. Roughly, you have the alien Mar-Vell sent to Earth to observe and report if we're a threat. He comes into contact with Danvers and gains the admiration and an affection for the human. He turns around and decides take sides with the humans and goes against his homeworld's directive, He mentors Danvers in the Kree ways of battle and what not and she gains her abilites through him. This in turn is viewed as treason and the Kree remotely activate their long since infiltrated Sentry-459. Mar-Vell and Danvers work together to defeat the Sentry but during this battle Mar-Vell is mortally wounded. Mar-Vell knowing that the Kree would not stop in their efforts finishes the training and transfers all his powers to Danvers to prepare her for what is surely to come. Enter Ronan the Accuser.
To be fair, most heroes don't have really famous stories outside of their origin. Ms. Marvel at least has a couple memorable/notable ones, the infamous one, the Binary one, the Rogue-takes her powers one.
As for supporting cast, Ms. Marvel is a SHIELD agent, and she has a couple of recurring human love interests. That's as much (more) supporting cast as any of the other females, all of which are dependent on groups that includes more significant male heroes for their supporting cast (Inhumans, SHIELD, the unavailable mutant community).
reading through the thread, it sounds like a lot of you don't care for Captain Marvel much at all.
His early adventures were some pretty sweet galactic superhero stuff- and his ties to Rick Jones could possibly introduce him to the movie verse as well.
And though Genis-Vell's solo run by Peter David only lasted about 60 issues, it's very good. I found it far better than a large amount of the other stuff Marvel was releasing at the time.
I found the Ultimate incarnation pretty sweet too. I wouldn't mind seeing something like that on film. I liked how they made his human form a disguise altogether- he kind of resembled more of a prawn from District 9 otherwise.
Agree with you on that one. Ms.Marvel and Janet need to turn up.
Hehe, it looks like we're both double-dipping in this thread and the other Ms. Marvel thread in the Marvel Films forum. I'm totally on board with this idea, and the guy who responded to you in the other thread regarding Carol Danvers being a top agent of SWORD, with Mar-Vell working there undercover.
If/when Mar-Vell ever shows up in the MCU, I strongly doubt they'll introduce the Rick Jones facet of the character. Marvel Studios never wanted Rick Jones for their Hulk mythology, and I don't see any reason for them to change their minds about him when Mar-Vell is on the drawing board.
There's just no place for a Rick Jones in 21st Century MCU. Sorry, Teen Brigade.
Oh yeah, I'm actually a fan of Captain Marvel so anything in relation to him I'm interested in.
Look whatever they do Ms Marvel has a certain set of features that can't be um A and B grade.
Ms. Marvel as she was in A:EMH.
One of my favorite Marvel heroes of all time.
Needs a movie. Now.
EMH got a lot right, it'd have been even better if they had time to space her out a bit.
I know it's not happening, but I'd just like to say that, having now seen the trailer for Zero Dark Thirty, I feel even better about these picks than I did before.
Dude we like totally on the same page!!
I posted this image in a different thread a while ago, thought you would like it
Jessica Chastain as Ms Marvel, it was something i did real quick after i saw this clip from Zero Dark Thirty and realised she is Carol.
I think Bigelow directing would be perfect as well. and I think she would enjoy it as well, it would something really different from what she has been doing lately.
Fixed the video for ya
Edit - and it doesn't mater because the used removed the video lol
LoL i thought you joking.. until i clicked the link.. these sons of B****** Thanks anyways... I Loved that scene.. until the Film actually releases i guess!
I thought about Jessica Chastain for Carol back when I saw The Debt in 2011. She's awesome at both drama and kicking butt. When she was first cast in Iron Man 3, I was hoping for Carol but now that she was replaced by Rebecca Hall and we know that Hall isn't playing Carol...
Marvel, please cast Jessica Chastain for Carol!
I like Chastain. She's new, and short, but she still works, imho. Good call.
Dominique McElligott as Ms.Marvel.
How time passes. I would fully support Captain Marvel as the Danvers version. I think calling her Ms. Marvel just demeans her and makes her sound like the female sidekick who needs her man.
