Seen in “Greta” or the series “Fresh Meat”, Zawe Ashton joins the cast of “Captain Marvel 2”. And it is rumored that the actress would play the opponent of Brie Larson in the film directed by Nia DaCosta.
What if Captain Marvel had found his next opponent in Zawe Ashton? Seen in the films Greta and Velvet Buzzsaw, or the series Fresh Meat, the English actress has indeed joined the cast of the sequel directed by Nia DaCosta (Candyman) in an undisclosed role. But Deadline claims she would be the villain of the story.
In view of the long list of enemies faced by the character, two possibilities of antagonists emerge: Deathbird, member of the Shi’ar empire endowed with superhuman strength, capable of flying and who is none other than the sister of Lilandra, played by Jessica Chastain in X-Men – Dark Phoenix, which would allow mutants to be included a bit more in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But it could also be Karla Sofen, aka Opale, a supervillain who obtains her powers thanks to an alien gem and becomes one of Carol Danvers’ fiercest opponents.
The interest of this second option would then be to confront the heroine with powers of Kree origin, like hers, and therefore to make her again face the dark side of this alien race to which she has been linked since the events of the first opus, released in 2019 on our screens. Anyway, the character still played by Brie Larson will not be alone since the young Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani) will be there after making her debut in her own series on Disney +, along with Monica Rambeau, who is currently illustrated in WandaVision as Teyonah Parris.
Expected on November 9, 2022 in our theaters, Captain Marvel 2 will take place in the present (unlike the first part, which took us to the heart of the 90s) and the super-heroine could therefore face one of her worst enemies. But there is still a lot of time to confirm everything and make official announcements.
Is there a clue about the sequel’s villain hidden in “Captain Marvel”?
