I always forget that she was also offered Peggy.
Yeah, I'm glad she turned that one down, though. Not only was Hayley perfect for the role, but if Blunt had played her, the TV show probably wouldn't be happening now.
Besides, I can't imagine going from being Black Widow, the most badass spy on SHIELD's payroll and future Avenger, to a seemingly one-time love interest role. As great as Peggy turned out to be, on paper that just doesn't seem like the most appealing proposition, imo.
She really gives me a Captain Marvel vibe in this promo
I'm starting to warm up to her..
Emily Blunt is my top pick, but I liked Yvonne Strahovski in 24 and Jessica Chastain is an amazing actress. Not sure how willing these big-name stars will be to sign on to multiple pictures though. Wouldn't be opposed to a lesser known signing i.e. Winnick.
As long as its not Sackhoff.
Chances are probably slim to none but but what do you guys think of Anna Torv?
^^^Of the "lesser known TV actresses" category, I prefer Strahovski and Winnick, but Torv is a great option as well. There are actually a lot of actresses on TV these days who would be good fits, imo.
Of those listed I'd go with either Charlize Theron or Ronda Rousey.
Just Hire Doug Liman for the job and then we should feel pretty comfortable about who might be Carol.
Those are baffling choices. I can completely see about Charlize, but you go from one extreme to another: from an academy award-winning actress to a mere fighter/ mixed martial-artist type.
Rousey would be terrible.
With Marvel's inability to get a BW movie going perhaps Scarjo will just show up to the Captain Marvel set with blonde hair like nothing's amiss.
Bigger fish to fry at the moment then a BW film. She'll be in plenty of projects coming up.
I think I want Emily for the role now..
You finally saw the light
Emily Blunt all the way!
For those who don't think Blunt looks good with blondish hair, Chris Evans has brown hair but as Steve Rogers (who is blonde in the comics), his hair is lighten a bit. I think her lighter hair in Edge of Tomorrow looked good on her. If she ends up as our Carol Danvers, the same hair colour from Edge of Tomorrow would be fine on her in Captain Marvel.
What happened lol
I almost dread the day coming to this site when the role is officially cast. The people who got very emotionally attached to their preferred choice will probably have a hard time accepting it if their choice doesn't get the role.
Par the course
I think most will get over their pet actor not being chosen as soon as the trailer hits.
I dislike the Carol Danvers character but someone like Emily Blunt would definitely get me excited.
More like once the first official still is released.
I rewatched Edge of Tomorrow, and she was fricking amazing in it!! she reminded of Carol in that movie. she also looks the part too.
Emily Blunt and she looks like she could pull off the American accent pretty well so why not have her play Carol Danvers? But I would go with Yvonne Strahovski
yea i like her for the role too
I think Hillary Swank would be a good choice if we are talking good academy level actors. Their was even a rumor that Swank may have showed up in the first Avengers as a Shield agent, possibly Carol Danvers.
